For instance, in the table about bipolar meds, after listing and describing standard treatments like lithium, depakote, and tegretol, there is an "others" section which included lamictal, topamax and gabapentin. Now this might lead one to believe that topamax and gabapentin are acceptable treatments, but in fact there is no evidence supporting their efficacy in bipolar disorder.
As another example, the algorithm for diagnosing psychotic disorders, as well as the text that followed it, I found to not be helpful at all. It seems like the author attempted to paraphrase and re-organize DSM-IV criteria, but only succeeded in making things more complicated for the reader. Frankly I think it would be easier and more comprehensible to just look up the actual DSM-IV criteria yourself.
And so on and so forth... This is a shame because I had a lot of faith in the First Aid series (USMLE Step 1 and 2 editions from several years ago) until this. The text needs a lot of work to be useful (and at least not harmful) to any degree.
