Review

"Managing Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications" by Joseph Goldberg and Carrie Ernst provides comprehensive, encyclopedic, coverage of this critical topic but it really is more than a volume on drug side effects; it is actually an indispensable resource for expert practice of psychopharmacology. Not only did I upgrade my own knowledge substantially by reading this book, but I also pledged to our residency training director that every MGH resident would be given a copy!"-- "Jerrold F. Rosenbaum M.D., Psychiatrist-in-Chief, Massachusetts General Hospital Stanley Cobb Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA"

"This is a very, very good book: both scholarly and practical. The most junior to the most experienced clinician can learn from it and refer to it often. I plan to keep it handy."-- "Alan J. Gelenberg, M.D., Shively/Tan Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA"

"Clinicians need to daily negotiate the often treacherous gap between the Scylla of efficacy and the Charybdis of safety. The extant literature is lopsided, focusing far more on the perhaps simpler issue of efficacy, relegating and minimising its complex sibling, safety. In this context this singular book is an invaluable and detailed map for clinicians to negotiate these complex waters; an essential desktop companion that is packed with clinically useful information."-- "Michael Berk, Professor of Psychiatry, Deakin University, Professorial Research Fellow, Mental Health Research Institute, Orygen Research Centre and the University of Melbourne"

From the Inside Flap

Side effects can jeopardize treatment adherence and discourage the use of otherwise effective pharmacotherapies. How can busy clinicians best anticipate and manage the drug side effects experienced by their patients? How are they best able to make medication decisions that balance treatment risks and benefits thoughtfully and confidently?

Filling a critical gap, Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications provides a wealth of practical and comprehensive knowledge to help clinicians recognize and navigate the diversity of end-organ psychotropic drug effects. This well-crafted resource will help practitioners better understand the consequences of available drug therapies, the range of strategies to effectively counteract adverse effects, and the scientific and practical implications of their treatment decisions. The highly respected authors contribute their depth of clinical wisdom in this supremely useful volume, presenting information that is either unavailable or less clearly distilled in psychopharmacology textbooks. Moreover, this work translates the oft-buried helpful elements of clinical trial data into wise counsel for real-world practice.

This excellent and unique work deconstructs complex scenarios into understandable components, providing invaluable guidance to clinicians as they consider options for managing adverse drug effects that range from the most common to the most serious.

HASH(0xa8404bac) out of 5 stars reference book Sept. 14 2013
By Sandra Brill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this reference book at least three times a week. Enjoy the charts and tables. It has most of the side effects I have had complaints about in an easy to find fashion.

HASH(0xa8404df8) out of 5 stars Comprehensive but inconsistent writing March 25 2014
By K Kennaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As is often the case with textbooks, it seems several authors contributed to writing the various chapters and, as such, the content is somewhat varied. For instance, some chapters are relatively comprehensive in addressing differential diagnosis of side effects like psychiatric and medical issues that may present similar to a SE from the psychiatric med. When this information is omitted from a chapter, it is not clear whether this is because there aren't any differentials or the author simply isn't addressing it.

Overall the book is laid out in a way that makes sense and the writing flows well. It has some wonderful charts and appears quite thorough in its review of the literature. A great companion to Stahl's Prescribers Guide and similar resources.

HASH(0xa8404dbc) out of 5 stars Must-have March 11 2014
By A. vonHALLE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been practicing for 5 years, and am just thrilled I bought this book. It provides up to date, thorough, useful information, and it's so well organized, I can just use it bit by bit, as needed. It really illuminates my thinking about med (and alternative med) choices and helps me problem solve efficiently. Love it.

HASH(0xa7ec812c) out of 5 stars ... am a registered nurse and find this text an excellent resource for current psychotropic drug therapy Aug. 9 2014
By Sara J Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a registered nurse and find this text an excellent resource for current psychotropic drug therapy. It is well written with short, up-to-date information. I would suggest that this text be used as a quick go-to resource for all heath care professionals, (especially those who prescribe psychotropic medications without properly assessing effectiveness and drug interactions). I highly recommend this book and hope that it could eventually be downloaded into a Kindle Book.
