Evidence-based conceptual framework
A clear, straightforward methodology - based on current research and clinical experience - defines discrete levels of psychotropic agents and spells out level-specific roles and responsibilities in accord with AAP policies.

Medications for ADHD, anxiety, and depression - disorders for which pediatric primary care providers commonly initiate treatment and assume prescribing and monitoring responsibilities.
Administration and management information for each drug agent includes:
  • Rationale for use
  • Evidence supporting efficacy and safety
  • Initial dosing and subsequent adjustments
  • Measuring therapeutic success
  • When to consult or refer
Medications typically prescribed by specialists but often monitored in the primary care setting: antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anxiolytics, and sleep aids. To support primary care providers' collaborative role, usage rationales, efficacy data, and adverse effect profiles are specified for all of these agents.

Proven, practice-focused guidance
Hands-on help spanning the therapeutic process:
  • Assessing for common disorders
  • Assessing for psychiatric comorbidities
  • Identifying medication needs
  • Informed consent
  • Monitoring patient progress
  • Managing side effects
  • Managing multiple medications
  • Stopping or changing medications

This clear and well-organized volume provides an excellent and useful compendium of advice on the use of psychotropic medications in pediatric primary care. Building on strong work by the AAP over the past 15 to 20 years to develop clinical practice guidelines for primary care management of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and the work of the AAP Task Force on Mental Health, this book offers clear guidance on when to use psychotropics, which to use, and what coexisting conditions and side effects the clinician should monitor. --James M. Perrin, MD, FAAP; John C. Robinson Chair in Pediatrics; Massachusetts General Hospital for Children; President (2014), American Academy of Pediatrics 4-Star Review This promises to be a useful book for general practitioners as well as others who would like to learn more about prescribing and monitoring psychotropics for youth with psychiatric diagnoses.
