Many psychotropic drugs are prescribed for children and adolescents on the basis of their efficacy in adults, since controlled studies in the corresponding age groups have often not been carried out or reported. Information is, however, available, and has now been brought together for the first time in an easy to use form in the new Child and Adolescent Version of the Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs. Designed to fill a need for a comprehensive but compact and easy-to-use reference, specifically for psychiatrists, psychologists, physicians, nurses, and other mental health professionals dealing with children and adolescents, the Child and Adolescent Version summarizes the latest information from the published literature (scientific data, controlled clinical trials, case reports) and clinical experience in compact and easy to use charts and bulleted lists for each class of psychotropic drug used in children and adolescents. Structured similarly to the highly regarded Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs, this version includes for each class of drugs both monograph statements on use in children and adolescents and approved indications, as well as the available data concerning off-lable indications, findings from open and double-blind studies concerning doses, adverse affects, and other consideration in these age groups. A new version of the classic psychotropic drug reference, especially designed for those dealing with children and adolescents!Virani, Adil S. is the author of 'Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs for Children and Adolescents' with ISBN 9780889372719 and ISBN 0889372713.
