About this book

This book is a practical guide for psychiatrists to use when treating patients for medical issues. Over the past 10-20 years, the number of medications prescribed for psychiatric illnesses has steadily increased, and psychiatric practitioners are frequently called upon to manage medical issues and side effects that result from psychotropic treatment. Covering a wide range of conditions from thyroid disorders to cardiac disease, this book is a helpful resource for understanding common adverse medical effects that occur when psychotropic drugs are administered. Presented in a practical format, each chapter discusses management of a particular medical problem or side effect and then provides a summary and flowchart of the major points highlighted in that chapter. Each chapter contains an overview of key medications causing a particular side effect. The book also includes special topics such as psychotropic prescribing in medical illness and tips on electrocardiographic interpretation. This easy-to-reference book aims to bridge the gap between medicine and psychiatry by elaborating on medical conditions seen in routine outpatient psychiatric practice. It serves as an invaluable tool for mental health providers, nurses, health educators, and pharmacologists alike. ​ ​​

Reviews

“This book covers the common physical health effects of psychotropic medications and how to appropriately diagnose and manage them. … This is an excellent reference for busy clinicians caring for patients who are prescribed psychotropic medications. … This book could be a vital reference for providers as it is written in a succinct manner using evidence-based information and it is complete in covering a wide range of topics.” (Aaron Plattner, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
