This innovative new resource provides a game-changing new approach in managing the complicated issues surrounding prescribing and monitoring psychopharmacological medications in children and teens. The new concept involves creating different levels of drugs. Level 1 drugs can be confidently prescribed by primary care physicians, and the book gives guidance on starting, dosing, monitoring, and managing adverse reactions. Level 2 drugs are to be prescribed only by psychiatrists or those practicing paediatricians who have experience and comfort doing so. The book provides guidance for primary care physicians on monitoring specific Level 2 medications their patients may be taking. It also provides resources on clinical assessment, preparation, and conceptual framework for prescribing; what to do if the medication isn't working; and managing multiple medications. The compact reference book will be accompanied by a digital tool allowing the physician to quickly access information on specific conditions and 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."Doody's Book Review 2016
