Antiepileptic Drugs to Treat Psychiatric Disorders
Several antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) now have regulatory indications for treating bipolar disorder. There is growing evidence that AEDs in general have a variety of useful psychotropic effects. This book is the first comprehensive, clinically oriented, reference on the use of AEDs to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders such as mood, psychotic, anxiety, substance use, eating, and personality disorders.
Written by the leading clinical experts, Antiepileptic Drugs to Treat Psychiatric Disorders:
- is organized by psychiatric disorder for easier information gathering, and enables the physician to use the text as a stand alone reference
- is the first comprehensive reference book clinically orientated to the use of AEDs to treat psychiatric disorders—other books have focused on drug mechanisms and drug interactions
