With this fully revised fourth edition, Dr Stahl returns to the essential roots of what it means to become a neurobiologically empowered psychopharmacologist, expertly guided in the selection and combination of treatments for individual patients in practice. Embracing the unifying themes of 'symptom endophenotypes', dimensions of psychopathology that cut across syndromes, and 'symptoms and circuits', every aspect of the text has been updated to the frontiers of current knowledge, with the clarity of explanation and illustration that only Dr Stahl can bring. Integrating much of the basic neuroscience into the clinical chapters, and with major additions in the areas of psychosis, antipsychotics, antidepressants, impulsivity, compulsivity and addiction, this is the single most readily readable source of information on disease and drug mechanisms. This remains the essential text for all students and professionals in mental health seeking to understand and utilize current therapeutics, and to anticipate the future for novel medications.

Psychiatrists and residents are faced with the important -- but what may feel overwhelming -- task of refreshing their knowledge of the whole of psychiatric practice, typically while remaining engaged in full-time clinical activity. Psychiatrists will find the logical structure, substantive questions, and thorough explanations provided by the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination to be as reassuring as they are educational. Although readers are advised to consult a range of resources in preparation for the examination, this guide is indispensable. It is the first and only guide to reflect the revisions contained in DSM-5®, and it will ably assume a primary role in the study and review process. The guide is designed for maximum usefulness, with specific features and attributes to support knowledge recall and successful examination performance. The authors are from a cross-section of accomplished students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty, all of whom have faced or will face the board examination and who understand its importance to the profession. Topics were determined by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint. The approximately 400 questions were formulated from information extracted from widely available American Psychiatric Publishing textbooks and accurately reflect the accepted psychiatric knowledge base. Each multiple choice question is followed by an explanation of why the correct answer is correct and the others are incorrect, and every question and explanation is referenced, directing the reader to the primary material for more in-depth learning and study. The volume was designed as a study guide for both the initial psychiatry board examination and the recertification examination. The process of working through the study guide will allow the reader to identify areas of strength and weakness, initiate further study, and test and retest knowledge, ultimately preparing for the examination's rigors. Only the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination offers support for the new, DSM-5® -- compatible examination, and that alone renders it essential.

This user-friendly resource offers complete and comprehensive coverage of the difficult challenges posed by drug-drug interactions. Over 170 case vignettes illustrate a variety of interactions (DDIs) to provide an unintimidating -- even entertaining -- approach to understanding these issues. Drug-Drug Interaction Primer builds on the author's earlier work, Drug Interactions Casebook: The Cytochrome P450 System and Beyond, and features updated references throughout and 29 new cases that provide such clinical examples as: a patient diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder transitions from haloperidol to aripiprazole with disastrous results; an AIDS patient's trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole is replaced with warfarin following atrial fibrillation, resulting in ischemic stroke; and a delusional patient on risperidone is placed on phenytoin following seizures, and delusions return. Previous cases have been revised to enhance clarity. An introduction to core concepts, which includes brief reviews of each enzyme system, brings the reader up to speed on how to think about DDIs and begin to grapple with what might seem like an imposing subject. The vignettes that follow each include a case presentation and an explanation of the mechanism by which the interaction(s) occurred, and each derives from sound clinical evidence -- not merely extrapolations from drug characteristics -- to offer a more realistic understanding of DDIs. Most of the interactions described involve the cytochrome P450 enzyme system; others involve alterations in phase II metabolism and P-glycoprotein functioning, as well as plasma protein displacement effects. The appendices detail most drug-drug interactions between psychotropic agents and contain metabolic pathways and inhibitory and inductive profiles for antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizing agents -- as well as tables that detail all known and clinically significant DDIs between pairings of any two agents from these drug classes. An extensive index allows quick reference. Among the book's other features: Reorganization by medical subspecialty -- psychiatry, internal medicine, neurology, surgery/anesthesia, and gynecology, oncology, and dermatology -- better facilitates clinical application. Comprehensive tables detail substrates, inhibitors, and inducers for P450, phase II, and P-glycoprotein. DDIs involving select nonpsychotropic agents such as tobacco, ethinylestradiol, and statins. Exploration of the paradigm of plasma protein binding mediated DDIs in detail, with cases conveniently indexed. These cases bring DDIs alive in a way that drier descriptions cannot, and this volume introduces more original material than will be found in other sources. Drug-Drug Interaction Primer is brimming with material that can be put to immediate use, offering insights that will improve any practitioner's skills.
