Great manual but there are not that many options to choose from in this field if you want a book small enough to carry in your lab coat. In every way this book is top notch and has practical application for daily practice. It includes plenty of "cut to the chase" advice on how to manage these medicines. My only complaint is that the book is from 1997 and plenty has changed since then in the field.

There are few bullet points or alphabetized lists. Though everything is referenced, the book reads like a story, paragraph by paragraph of invaluable knowledge. I can curl up on the couch and really enjoy this book. At the same time it is a necessary read for anyone who prescribes psychotropics--an odd combination--informative AND enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very helpful in many areas. For one it is one of the few that actually a have list of the MAO diet- it is even easy to copy to hand to patients. It not only talks about drugs that are on the market but also those not approved yet or those used in Europe. AAlthough it only barely fits in your lab coat, it is not heavy to carry. At the same time it is not too small without giving a thorough review as some small poacket books do. I recommend this to everyone but in particular for those on consultation liason service as well as training residents or fellows - being an upper level resident myself, I know the usefulness of this book from experience.

The seventh edition 2011 arrives in a few days after the order was placed in Amazon. Nice package.
It covers a broad spectrum of mental illness, psychotropic drugs from the past to the latest to come.
Pros and cons are discussed for augmentation or switching.
Presentation is sincere without any bias.
The authors are distinguished professors in psychiatry from Stanford and Harvard Medical schools. A rare and valuable advice for physicians, a section on ethical, legal and economy are thoughtfully included.
Fill with facts and references. Organized. Excellent book for psychiatrists in practice. I own two older editions also. I will look for every new edition of this book in future.
Thanks.

There's a lot of great advice in this text, but you're just going to have to make time to read large chunks of it to gather it. This is not user-friendly if you're trying to look something up quickly between patients. The rare tables are of little use, and, seriously, how import is it that you can see a molecular model of something you are prescribing?

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
1. I know that this is one of the "bibles" of psychopharm and thus to speak ill will of it is probably unheard of. And I know that Dr. Schatzberg is one of the top leaders within the world of psychiatry, psychiatric treatments and psychopharm.

2. But this is a book review and thus here are my bottomline thoughts:
a. I like the size of the manual; much more useable than the textbook.
b. The content is... semi-bad. If you actually read the book, you'll quickly realize that this is a book (frankly like most other textbooks) where the overall foundation is the same the very first edition, with a few words, facts, data points, changed to reflect newer information. And I can appreciate the impossibility of re-writing the book for each new edition, but this is perhaps why all my attendings always recommended against reading textbooks because even they're supposedly "new", the reality is that the majority of the information is rehashed data. I can spend pages going over examples of where the text within this book doesn't reflect current thinking... to the point where one starts to wonder if it's even worth reading this book.

3. If you want the most generic text that goes over psychopharm, this is probably worthwhile getting. But if you expect to get up to date, clear and concise psychopharm information (as you would get if one were to listen to a lecture via Dr. Schatzberg), then forget it. This is another one of those books with rehashed data from years gone by, peppered with newer information to give the appearance of a new edition.

Let me start my saying I wish I had purchased the newer version as there have been changes recently that affect best practice. This book is an excellent reference guide for any mental health practitioner. Comprehensive list of drugs, side effects, efficacy for symptoms etc. Purchased this book for graduate clinical psychopharmacology and it will be staying in my book shelf.

Format: Paperback
One of the good books in psychopharmacology. The details are crisp and informative but not too overwhelming. Although the format remains 'traditional' (separate sections for antidepressants, antianxiety, and antipsychotic meds), this text is great for clinicians, students, and trainees.
