Clinical Manual of Psychopharmacology in the Medically Ill is an authoritative guide to the principles and practice of prescribing psychotropic medication to psychiatrically and medically ill patients. Thoroughly updated to include coverage of newly released medical and psychiatric drugs and relevant research conducted in the interval since the first edition, this new edition retains the structure and features that made the first edition so successful. In two well-organized sections designed to be read serially, the manual addresses fundamental background information for prescribing psychotropic drugs across medical disease states, followed by psychopharmacological treatment in specific organ system diseases and relevant subspecialty areas. The manual is designed to be useful to clinicians practicing in a broad range of specialties, including psychosomatic medicine specialists, advance practice nurses, the general psychiatrist whose patient with schizophrenia develops liver disease, and the primary care provider prescribing an antidepressant to a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Written in an accessible and pragmatic style, Clinical Manual of Psychopharmacology in the Medically Ill is a core text and reference for many fellowship programs approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and prepares clinicians to provide safe and effective care to their patients with mental illness.
