Prescribing Psychotropics: From Drug Interactions to Pharmacogenetics


Prescribing Psychotropics bridges the gap between the complexities of drug pharmacokinetics and everyday clinical practice, providing clinicians more insight into how psychiatric drugs behave (or misbehave!) once their patients take them. The book also includes a series of unusually practical charts and tables that prescribers will find invaluable as they make medication decisions.
