Information from electronic data provided by the publisher. May be incomplete or contain other coding.

Part of the LWW Handbook Series, this is perhaps the most popular guide to the essential facts about all major classes of psychiatric drugs used in clinical practice. Readers have fingertip access to indications, therapeutic uses, side effects, toxicity and mechanisms of action for each drug class, with individual coverage of individual agents. The book is organized by drug class, NOT by psychiatric disorder (as is the Sadock drug handbook). Authors Rosenbaum, Hyman and Fava are from Harvard-Mass General Hospital; authors Arana (Med Univ. SC) and Labbate (Univ. of Arkansas) are alums from those institutions.
