Reviews

“Book explains pharmacovigilance and its importance in the field of psychiatry. … I have read other books that review side effects of medications, but this is truly the first of its kind as it not only reviews the potential side effects of psychotropic medications, but also illustrates why this topic is so important, how to improve pharmacovigilance in order to reduce side effects of psychotropic medications, and what future potential improvements can be made if proper pharmacovigilance methods are followed.” (Aaron Plattner, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2016)
