Helps with complex prescribing needs The evidence base for drug treatments in psychiatry ranges from meta–analyses and randomised controlled clinical trials to single case reports, and from NICE guidelines to individual SPCs.  Where do you look for information when transferring a patient from one drug to another?  Where do you find a clear overview when dealing with a complex patient (e.g, with co–morbid epilepsy or liver disease or HIV infection)?   Where can you seek advice on prescribing psychotropics during pregnancy?  The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry ! The leading clinical reference for handling prescribing problems as encountered in daily practice and for formulating prescribing policy.  Evidence–based and written by experts This book is the essential guide for anyone responsible for prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs for patients with mental health disorders.  All the evidence has been reviewed and summarized succinctly by an expert team of psychiatrists and pharmacists.  New content and improved format This new edition makes greater use of tables and boxes to facilitate quick reference and includes new sections on cytochrome–mediated interactions and psychiatric side effects of non–psychotropic drugs. Clinically relevant Chapters address plasma monitoring, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, children and adolescents, substance abuse and special patient groups.  Each section has a full reference list.  The book covers prescribing drugs outside their licensed indications and their interaction with substances such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine. Useful for all levels of experience Trainees will gain important information regarding the rational, safe and effective use of medications for patients with mental illness.  Experienced clinicians will find excellent guidance regarding more complex issues that they may not encounter regularly.  Why the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry?

Product Description

Review

“This comprehensive guide presents clinicians with evidence–based information on prescribing psychotropic drugs for mental health … This book will help nurses to be confident, sensitive and informed when discussing medication with patients and relatives, exploring treatment options within their professional teams and liaising with allied health professionals.”  ( Nursing Standard , 30 May 2012)

From the Back Cover

This book is the essential guide for anyone responsible for prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs for patients with mental health disorders. All the evidence has been reviewed and summarised succinctly by an expert team of psychiatrists and pharmacists. The evidence base for drug treatments in psychiatry ranges from meta–analyses and randomised controlled clinical trials to single case reports, from NICE guidelines to individual SPCs. Where to look for information when transferring a patient from one drug to another or when dealing with a complex patient (for example, with co–morbid epilepsy or liver disease or HIV infection)? The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines are established as the leading clinical relevant reference for handling complex prescribing problems and for formulating prescribing policy. This new edition makes greater use of tables and boxes to facilitate quick reference and includes new sections on cytochrome–mediated interactions, psychiatric side effects of non–psychotropic drugs and on GBL and GHB dependence. Chapters cover plasma monitoring, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, children and adolescents, substance misuse and special patient groups. Each section has a full reference list. The book covers prescribing drugs outside their licensed indications and their interaction with substances such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine. Trainees will gain important information regarding the rational, safe and effective use of medications for patients with mental illness. Experienced clinicians will find excellent guidance regarding more complex issues that they may not encounter regularly. Praise for previous editions: “I would regard this book as mandatory for any pharmacist directly involved in the care of patients with a psychiatric diagnosis, be they primary or secondary care–based.” The Pharmaceutical Journal “An excellent book and a ‘must’ for practising psychiatrists… not only will the rational prescribing of psychotropic drugs drastically improve but, more importantly, the patient will certainly benefit.” Human Psychopharmacology

By Mr. Philip Harkins VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fantastic reference book for those who work in mental health, and possibly of use too those with a need to cross check medicines etc prescribed by the mental health professional or GP.
However it's not aimed at the general market, and has a lot of in depth prescribing charts etc which could be misinterpreted by those without the knowledge to follow their content and put it in context.
It does have some new research published in it, but again I question whether it will be of use to the layman, but is rather aimed at those who work in the filed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any mental health professional 8 May 2012
By Sandford TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Maudsley Hospital is my alma mater, having undertaken my mental health nurse training there in 1986. One of the most formative educational experiences of my life, which prompted my request for this text.
I don't work in the mental health field now per se, but as a qualified nurse in the private sector, have relied at times on this text for discussion both with my peers, and out-hours emergency service. For of having a few eye-brows raised, with the help of this text, it has saved me from some difficult situations at 03:00 in the morning, when I am looking for some advice from a Medicom practitioner that has been, (may I say clueless), in terms of what/how to prescribe medication in an acute situation.

Because of its specific attention to mental health, the experience within the text is admirable, I feel more secure with this reference text than I do with the BNF.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for prescribers... 9 April 2012
By John TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This really is one of those books that if you prescribe medication you must have. This edition continues the work of previous editions in giving advice in prescribing medication for psychiatric illness. Read in conjunction with the BNF it gives detailed advice on concomittant administration of psychotropic, antimanic and antidepressent medication, drug interactions and timetables for administration to acheive therapuetic levels. Importantly it also gives information on titration for medication. It doesn't replace training and experience in prescribing psychiatric medication but it does give a wealth of information that those at the fringes: i.e. GP's involved in the continuing care of a patient, will find extremely useful as will established psychiatrists, psychiatrists in training and other mental health professionals involved in prescribing.
