About this book


Psychopharmacology of the Developmental Disabilities explores the use of psychotropic and antiepileptic medications in developmentally disabled patients. A distinguished group of international experts offers comprehensive coverage of traditional psychotropic as well as novel pharmacological agents, antiepileptic drugs, and diet and vitamin treatments. Issues related to litigation, measurement of blood levels, tardive dyskinesia, and behavioral pharmacology are discussed in detail. Psychopharmacology of the Developmental Disabilities provides an excellent overview of what is known about psychoactive drugs and an awareness of the principal social and medical issues posed by these agents.
