Synopses & Reviews
The selection of medications available to aid mental health has become amazingly wide and varied. "The Psychopharmacology Sourcebook" is a guide to the conditions--depression, anxiety, bipolar, and obsessive compulsive disorders--and the many pharmaceuticals that can be prescribed for them. Prozac(R), Xanax(R), Pamelor(R), Buspar(R), Klonopin(R), and Paxil(R) are just a few that are discussed through various case studies.
Zetin and Tate explain the common indications for psychopharmaceutical prescriptions, their overall effectiveness, and their possible side effects. Used in conjunction with talk therapy, psychopharmaceuticals can allow people who suffer from emotional problems a chance to heal and live normal lives.
