Danser, Helen Lisanby
The manual is intended to assist the rehabilitation professional in planning services for persons with disabilities, such as long-term mental illness, which require treatment with medication, especially psychotropic medications. The compilation of data groups similar medications together and includes such information as purpose of medication, side effects, drug interactions, and additional information for clients, families, and counselors. Data are provided for antipsychotic medications, antiparkinsonian medications, antidepressant medications, antianxiety medications, and anticonvulsant medications. Additionally, questions are suggested for the patient or counselor to ask the physician prescribing the medication. Indexes are provided organized by both generic and trade names. (DB)
