The second revised edition of this text updates and presents current state of the art clinical approaches to this subject, assisting neurologists and physicians alike in this difficult but increasingly common situation.
This book will continue to be the source text of information on drug-induced movement disorders authored and edited by the pioneers in the field. It will be an invaluable addition to the library of any neurologist. The understanding of drug-induced movement disorders is extremely difficult, and many physicians and clinicians find this a difficult and complex area to treat. The unique way in which the plethora of different drugs react and manifest with the patient’s exact condition is particularly hard to manage and diagnose. The effects of some of these drugs may suppress other symptoms that the patient may have, leading to confusion in the analysis of a patient’s care, especially when trying to avoid permanent movement disorders.
