The first edition of this book was widely acclaimed as a unique and practical review and reference, that deserves to be in the library of every practicing psychiatrist or neurologist. Now fully revised and expanded by 25% to take account of new findings over the past years, the book presents an account of drug-induced disorders which should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a wide range of psychiatric or neurological conditions. The orientation is the opposite of what one normally finds: In the Physician's Desk Reference and elsewhere one starts with the drug and considers the complications. Here, one begins with the clinical situation, and works backward to help determine whether and what medications are involved. Each specific disorder is discussed, with extensive links to other influences of the drugs involved. Cross-references between drugs and adverse effects are therefore easily accomplished, assisted by the comprehensive index and dozens of practical tables.American Psychiatric Association: Diagnosis and statistical manual of mental disorders, 4th ed., Washington, DC, American Psychiatric Association, 1994: 317- 391.
