Description - Psychiatric Side Effects of Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications by Thomas Markham Brown

One of the first questions patients ask their physicians when a drug is prescribed is, "What are the side effects?". It is up to the physician to know the complete and accurate answer to this question and to determine if the drug is appropriate for that specific patient. The physician must not only consider each and every side effect, but also weigh the benefits versus the risks involved. Both prescription and nonprescription medications can cause a variety of problems or side effects for people taking them, both in terms of behaviour and ability to think. This book examines how to recognize and manage the psychological side effects of these medications, and provides a source of information for psychiatrists, primary care doctors, and other medical subspecialty practitioners. Throughout this reference work, the authors cover the major medications used in medicine and psychiatry. They focus on the fundamental ways drugs cause cognitive toxicity and map strategies for clinical management. They also address the consequences of drug interactions and the basic pathophysiology of central nervous system toxicity.
