This first edition of this unique textbook is somewhat of a psychiatrically oriented combination of the Medical Letter Handbook of Adverse Drug Interactions and Goodman and Gilman’s Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics. The purpose is to facilitate the early detection and prompt treatment of neuropsychiatric toxicity resulting from medication use. While the authors state the book is “merely an introduction to the subject,” they have presented a comprehensive guide to the various psychiatric and neurologic side effects that can result from the use of practically any medication. They have achieved this in a highly readable and well-organized fashion.​
