From the Author: Clinical Psychopharmacology for the Busy Practitioner was written to address the needs of practicing physicians for a concise reference companion to daily practice. It is designed to facilitate the task of selecting the best available medication for each patient. Therapeutic dosages, equivalencies, methods and schedules of administration, effects, side effects, contraindications, and drug interactions are set forth in tables that are easy to read, and described in all their essentials in the accompanying text.

In using this guide, it must be remembered that prescribing the best psychoactive drug is never alone sufficient. The foremost task of the clinician is to establish a trusting, compassionate relationship with his patient. The patient who trusts in his doctor's empathy and judgment will continue to take his medications, endure their unpleasant side effects, and approach his problems more realistically. His trust and openness will also enable his doctor to diagnose his disorder as accurately as possible, allowing for the best choice of treatment modalities.
