Mental health clinicians who lack internal medicine experience or who do not feel comfortable addressing medical conditions in their patients will find Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry an indispensable resource. The first evidence-based medical handbook for psychiatrists in training or practice, the book takes the reader through a series of common medical conditions, offering practical information on diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening conditions, as well as management of less serious health issues. For the second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated and restructured. The book is designed to guide clinicians to focus quickly and effectively on managing medical problems in the psychiatric setting. The Handbook offers invaluable content and many helpful features: Coverage of medical emergency management in psychiatric hospitals takes the limitations of the facility into account. For example, the chapters on caring for patients in cardiac arrest or patients in respiratory failure include practical strategies for adapting to the limited resources available in self-standing psychiatric hospitals. The material on life-threatening adverse reactions to psychotropic drugs is completely up-to-date and thorough and includes guidelines for the recognition, prevention, and management of agranulocytosis, ventricular arrhythmias, pancreatitis, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, serotonin syndrome, hyperglycemic emergencies, and airway obstruction. Medical deterioration in psychiatric settings is both common and critical, and the book offers cutting-edge knowledge on assessment procedures and instruments for prediction of acute medical deterioration of psychiatric inpatients. Structured for easy reading and comprehension, the book's topics are grouped into seven parts that address the essential features of clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, stratification of the risk of major complications or death, and the evidence-based approach to management, as applicable in the psychiatric setting. The numerous tables, figures, and flowcharts effectively illustrate important procedures and protocols. Completely updated and streamlined, Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry stands alone in its completeness, its rigor, and its understanding of the environmental challenges that face the clinician delivering care to patients with serious medical and psychiatric comorbidities.

Information about new psychotropic drugs, a summary of advances in knowledge about identifiable risk factors for adverse effects, and updated recommendations on viable "antidote" management strategies -- including novel pharmacotherapies for tardive dyskinesia and newer agents for weight loss -- are among the features of this new, second edition of Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications. Where other psychopharmacology textbooks -- and, indeed, most internships and residencies in psychiatry -- lack a solid basis in primary care medicine, this guide bridges that educational gap, offering a thorough examination of all the effects of taking a psychotropic drug as well practical clinical advice on how to manage complications that arise. The book is divided into three parts: The first deals with global issues that affect the assessment and formulation of possible adverse effects, as well as with pertinent concepts related to basic pharmacology, physiology, and medical monitoring. The second part presents information organized by individual organ systems or specific medical circumstances. The final part focuses on summary recommendations covering all the material presented in the book and is followed by helpful appendixes and self-assessment questions and resources for practitioners. This new edition includes: * Updated summaries about what psychiatrists should know regarding drug-drug interactions, iatrogenic cardiac arrhythmias, drug pressor effects and orthostatic hypotension, and drug rashes; as well as updated discussions on avoiding lithium nephrotoxicity, handling adverse effect emergencies, and understanding new FDA classifications about drug safety during pregnancy* An expanded discussion on the strengths and limitations of pharmacogenetic testing to predict adverse drug effects, as well as information about new treatments for sexual dysfunction, sleep disturbances, cognitive complaints, and other maladies* Revised summary tables to aid rapid assessment and management* An expanded section on supplemental resources* An updated and expanded self-assessment section with more key questions Busy clinicians will find in Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications an accessible reference that provides both scientific and scholarly discussion of the consequences of drug therapies they may prescribe (or avoid), the range of available strategies to effectively manage adverse effects, and the scientific and practical implications of their treatment decisions.

More attention needs to be paid to preventing side effects, developing strategies to systematically assess these side effects, and for managing them. This book focuses on some of the commonest side effects of psychiatric medications and is jam-packed with highly clinically useful, practical information to help deal with them. The numerous practical strategies described will be useful to both the beginner and to the experienced clinician. The book will appeal to psychiatrists, other physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, etc.
