Updates the reader on the therapeutic options available for the management of schizophrenia, aiding the clinician to translate scientific evidence into improved outcomes. This book also presents a thorough discussion of the new generation of ‘atypical’ antipsychotic drugs – their mode of action and their clinical efficacy in a range of applications. These new agents are compared with existing medications, guiding the reader on their use in combination with other treatments as part of an integrated programme of patient management. Additional special topics covered include metabolic side-effects, early psychosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, comorbid substance abuse and emergencies. This title enables the reader to keep up to date with the therapeutic options available, and maintain a better informed perspective on current opinion in schizophrenia. It should find a place in the office of every doctor involved in the study and treatment of this complex and challenging disorder.
