Case Studies: Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology: Volume 3

a cura di Stephen Stahl, Takesha Cooper

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 448

Following the success of the first two volumes in Stahl's Case Studies series, a brand new collection of clinical stories have been collated in Volume 3, derived from cases seen by medical students, residents and faculty from the University of California at Riverside (UCR) Department of Psychiatry and Neuroscience. The highly popular and unique user-friendly presentation of previous volumes has been maintained, with extensive use of icons, questions/answers, and tips. The cases address multifaceted issues in an understandable way and with direct relevance to the everyday experience of clinicians. Covering a wide-ranging and representative selection of clinical scenarios, each case is followed through the complete clinical encounter, from start to resolution, acknowledging all the complications, issues, decisions, twists and turns along the way. The book is about living through the treatments that work, the treatments that fail, and the mistakes made along the journey. This is psychiatry in real life.

Practical Psychopharmacology

Translating Findings From Evidence-Based Trials into Real-World Clinical Practice

Stephen M. Stahl, Joseph F. Goldberg

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 610

Despite the lack of guidance available for practitioners, extensive polypharmacy has become the primary method of treating patients with severe and chronic mood, anxiety, psychotic or behavioral disorders. This ground-breaking new book provides an overview of psychopharmacology knowledge and decision-making strategies, integrating findings from evidence-based trials with real-world clinical presentations. It adopts the approach and mind-set of a clinical investigator and reveals how prescribers can practice 'bespoke psychopharmacology', tailoring care to the individualized needs of patients. Practitioners at all levels of expertise will enhance their ability to devise rationale-based treatments, targeting manifestations of dysfunctional neural circuitry and dimensions of psychopathology that cut across conventional psychiatric diagnoses. Presented in a user-friendly, practical, full-colour layout and incorporating summary tables, bullet points, and illustrative case vignettes, it is an invaluable guide for all healthcare professionals prescribing psychotropic medications, including psychiatry specialists, primary care physicians, and advanced practice registered nurses.

La trattazione di ogni farmaco è suddivisa in cinque sezioni, ciascuna contraddistinta da uno specifico colore: Informazioni terapeutiche, Effetti collaterali, Posologia e modalità d’uso, Popolazioni speciali e Arte della psicofarmacologia. Quest’ultima sezione è dedicata alle opinioni dell’Autore su questioni come i potenziali vantaggi o svantaggi del farmaco, i principali sintomi bersaglio e una serie di notazioni cliniche che hanno lo scopo di ottimizzare l’impiego del farmaco (Perle cliniche). Il volume è caratterizzato da un tipo di comunicazione verbale-iconico, in cui l’immagine e il testo si completano a vicenda, il che permette una facilità di impiego e una consultazione rapida.

Schatzberg's Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology

Alan F. Schatzberg, Charles DeBattista

editore: American Psychiatric Association Publishing

pagine: 836

Schatzberg's Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology is a meticulously researched, yet down-to-earth guide for practitioners prescribing psychotropic medications to individuals with psychiatric disorders or symptoms mandating treatment. The ninth edition offers up-to-date information on current drugs, interactions, side effects, and dosing guidelines, and retains the strengths and features that have made it a standard text for trainees and practicing clinicians. The authors also include a new chapter on important developments in laboratory-guided pharmacotherapy, including pharmacogenomic testing, neurocognitive testing, quantitative EEG, and neuroimaging. Although the book's primary purpose is to provide the reader-practitioner with basic and practical information regarding the many classes of psychiatric medications, the authors stress that understanding how to select and prescribe psychotropic medications does not obviate the basic need to comprehensively evaluate and understand psychiatric patients. Accordingly, the book draws on the authors' clinical experience, as well as on the scientific literature, resulting in an accessible, yet rigorous text. Features that have helped cement this book's reputation include: * Coverage is not limited to long-standing and newly approved medications, but also includes agents that are likely to receive approval from the FDA in the near future, ensuring that the reader stays up-to-date.* References are provided for key statements, and each chapter is then followed by a list of selected relevant articles and books for readers who want to go beyond the material presented, making for a leaner, more reader-friendly guide.* Dozens of summary tables with key information on classes of psychotropics function as quick-reference guides, promoting learning and serving as convenient resources for overloaded clinicians.* The appendix offers two kinds of suggested readings. The first, for clinicians, is invaluable to trainees, while the second, for patients and families, helps point clinicians to books aimed at a lay audience to supplement information provided to patients. Staying abreast of both new medications and promising treatment protocols is essential in this rapidly evolving field. Schatzberg's Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology delivers authoritative information in a friendly, collegial style, ensuring that both students and practicing clinicians are equipped to provide a superior standard of care.

Stephen M. Stahl

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 492

Child and adolescent psychopharmacology is a rapidly growing field with psychotropic medications used widely in the treatment of this patient group. However, psychopharmacological treatment guidelines used for adults cannot simply be applied for children or adolescents, thus presenting clinicians and nurse practitioners with assessment and prescribing challenges.

Reviewed by expert Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, the medications are presented in the same design format in order to facilitate rapid access to information. Each drug is broken down into a number of sections, each designated by a unique color background thereby clearly distinguishing information presented on therapeutics, safety and tolerability, dosing and use, what to expect, special populations, and the art of psychopharmacology, and followed by key references.

Psicopillole. Per un uso etico e strategico dei farmaci

Alberto Caputo, Roberta Milanese

editore: Ponte alle Grazie

pagine: 252

La vita umana è fatta di alti e bassi, di piaceri e dolori, e "normalità" non è sinonimo di felicità costante. È quindi legittimo chiedersi se sia proprio necessario interpretare ogni sofferenza o difficoltà nei termini di un disturbo psicologico. I manuali diagnostici che classificano le patologie mentali hanno conosciuto, soprattutto a partire dalla sua ultima versione (il DSM-5), un tale ampliamento delle proprie categorie da comprendere quasi ogni genere di disagio. Il lutto per una morte può venire scambiato per depressione, l'agitazione di un bambino diventa sindrome da deficit di attenzione e, sebbene disturbi come l'insonnia non siano paragonabili alle psicosi, pare esserci una medicina per tutti. Così i trattamenti di tipo farmacologico conoscono sempre maggiore successo, per la gioia delle industrie farmaceutiche che investono nel marketing per aumentare le proprie vendite. Gli interessi economici non sono infatti di poco conto, se si considerano i numeri dei potenziali pazienti. Tutto ciò ha incentivato la tendenza odierna a prescrivere gli psicofarmaci con estrema facilità, anche da parte di medici non specializzati in psichiatria. Ma gli psicofarmaci non sempre servono, spesso sono anzi dannosi, in ogni caso bisogna conoscerli e somministrarli con cautela visti i considerevoli effetti collaterali. Potrebbe invece dimostrarsi più utile una psicoterapia, con ricorso ai farmaci solo quando indispensabili e dietro attento controllo medico specialistico. Nel campo della psiche è comunque sempre fondamentale adattare il trattamento al tipo di problema presentato -di carattere biologico oppure psicologico, relazionale, familiare, sociale - in modo da agire allo stesso livello, secondo l'antico principio che "le cose simili sono curate dalle cose simili".

Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology

Molly McVoy, Robert L. Findling

editore: American Psychiatric Association Publishing

pagine: 545

The new, third edition of the Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology has been thoroughly revised, yet its mission remains the same: to keep clinicians up-to-date on the latest research so that they can provide state-of-the-art care to their young patients. To this end, the book describes and explores those elements that are specific to pediatric psychopharmacology; this defines and positions the volume at the nexus of child and adolescent psychiatry, pediatrics, and pharmacology. A stellar roster of contributors addresses new treatments for youths with disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, and psychotic illnesses and tackles some of the most important emerging issues in the field. For example, advances in understanding the long-term treatment effects of medications in pediatric populations are thoroughly reviewed, including not only maintenance studies that consider the durability of efficacy but also clinical trials of greater duration designed to specifically evaluate long-term safety. In addition, recent studies of combination therapies are examined, helping clinicians better understand how to treat the complicated patients that arrive every day at a prescribing clinician's office. Finally, because research designs now include a broader base of patient populations to make the data more applicable to everyday clinical practice, the book focuses on head-to-head studies with multiple active comparators. The book offers clinicians comprehensive, accessible information and boasts a multitude of helpful features: * The book is organized by diagnosis instead of agent class. This makes it a true clinical desktop reference that allows clinicians to quickly and efficiently search treatment options and the evidence base on a case-by-case basis. DSM-5 criteria and information on comorbidities are also included.* The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Practice Parameters are integrated into the discussion, where applicable, in support of standard of care.* The book has been updated to include the latest research at the time of publication.* A new chapter has been added to address eating disorders, an area where psychopharmacological research that may apply to children and adolescents is now being pursued.* Useful features to help the reader understand and retain the material include clinical summary points, easy to read tables, and current and carefully vetted references. The Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, Third Edition, is an indispensable guide to the substantive research that has been done in nearly every area of pediatric psychopharmacology, as well as the major improvements that have been made to the evidence-based practice of treating youths with psychiatric illness.
