Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology

This book has been converted and optimized for reading, search and navigation on smartphones by Indextra AB.

With this fully revised fourth edition, Dr Stahl returns to the essential roots of what it means to become a neurobiologically empowered psychopharmacologist in practice, expertly guided in the selection and combination of treatments for individual patients. Embracing the unifying themes of 'symptom endophenotypes', dimensions of psychopathology that cut across syndromes, and 'symptoms and circuits', every aspect of the text has been updated to the cutting-edge of the latest knowledge, with the clarity of explanation and illustration that only Dr Stahl can bring. Integrating much of the basic neuroscience into the clinical chapters, and with major additions in the areas of psychosis, antipsychotics, antidepressants, impulsivity, compulsivity and addiction, this is the single most accessible and readable source of information on disease and drug mechanisms. It remains the essential text for all students and professionals in mental health seeking to understand and utilize current therapeutics, and to anticipate possible advances in medication.

  • Evidence-based principles for the use of psychopharmacologic drugs are clearly explained and developed
  • Highly illustrated throughout with excellent, eye-catching, clear, color diagrams
  • Carefully selected 'suggested reading' directs the reader to the most relevant sources for further information on a particular topic
