Since its hardcover publication in 1990, Dr. Jack Gorman's The Essential Guide to Psychiatric Drugs has become the classic book of its kind, an accessible and easy-to-read handbook that contains everything consumers need to know about psychiatric medications. The text, geared for both the public and the therapist alike, is an authoritative guide that allows patients and their families to understand the full implications of any psychiatric drug that has been prescribed. Dr. Gorman has thoroughly updated this edition to include listings for six new antidepressants similar to Prozac; three revolutionary drug treatments for schizophrenia; Depakote, the most recent alternative to lithium for controlling manic-depression; and the latest treatments for anxiety disorders.
