Description

Updates the reader on the therapeutic options available for the management of schizophrenia

Ideal for Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Hospital pharmacists, and Trainees, this book also presents a thorough discussion of the new generation of ‘atypical’ antipsychotic drugs – their mode of action and their clinical efficacy in a range of applications. These new agents are compared with existing medications, guiding the reader on their use in combination with other treatments as part of an integrated programme of patient management. Additional special topics covered include metabolic side-effects, early psychosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, comorbid substance abuse and emergencies.
