Description

In the 7 years since the first edition of Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychopharmacology was published, dozens of new drugs have been released, and older medications have been marketed in different formulations. In addition, research on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and mechanism of action, potential interactions, and other critical topics has proceeded apace, rendering much of the information in existing guides obsolete. This new volume is both comprehensive and completely up to date, offering information unavailable elsewhere. New drugs covered include asenapine, paliperidone, iloperidone, lurasidone, desvenlafaxine, vilazodone, long-acting trazodone, milnacipran, armodafinil, extended-release valproate, rotigotine transdermal, tetrabenazine, dextromethorphan, long-acting gabapentin, and transdermal buprenorphine. Each chapter has a standardized format, with topics including pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and mechanism of action, drug interactions, clinical use (which addresses choice of drug, alternative formulations/routes, pre-treatment evaluation, dose and dose titration, PRN use, monitoring treatment, drug levels.show more
