Revue de presse
Review of previous edition: 'The book's major strength is its readability and user friendliness. The art of psychopharmacology is finally given the space it deserves … This guidebook is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications and belongs in every clinician's library.' The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
Review of previous edition: 'I recommend the Guide as an excellent and easy-to-read reference for practitioners who may be seeking an improved comfort zone with psychotropic drugs.' Canadian Journal of Psychiatry
Review of previous edition: 'Those who are conversant with the other textbooks on essential psychopharmacology written by the author will find the present textbook particularly useful as a practical application of the principles presented in those texts. However, this Guide will also be of assistance to any prescribing physician who wishes to obtain a short, clearly presented account of the drugs used in psychiatric practice.' Human Psychopharmacology
'This is an exceptional resource for clinicians who prescribe psychiatric drugs for their patients. The unique way it presents the information makes it useful to both prescribers and nonprescribers. Dr Stahl's presentation of the information makes it useful to physicians, residents, and medical students. Even seasoned psychopharmacologists will find this useful.' Doody's Reviews
'[Dr Stahl] crams a remarkable amount of concisely expressed, up-to-date information into his book … The combination of up-to-date information with such a reader friendly presentation is what makes Dr Stahl's work so welcome.' Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

I was disappointed to find that the digital version is basically just the text of the book. It has none of the useful formatting or color-coding that makes the book so approachable.
So in the end, I had to choose: Useful book or portable download....and I actually choose the book. Why can't publishers understand that the digital version has to be AT LEAST as good at the book?!
For those of us that buy our books by the pound, the book is 100 pages and 7 mm thicker. That's 13% more drugs and 14% more pages. The last edition was a minor update. This edition seems a more major update.
As for content on existing drugs, consider topiramate: the FDA indications are more detailed about seizures, weight management was added. Still no mention of use in depression, except as part of BPAD.
Moclobemide: unchanged in that 600 mg is the maximum dose. In this edition, "generally used" is the recommendation, rather than just a dose range. Still says that moclobemide requires a low-tyramine diet (?!), but this time, includes three tables of things to avoid: serotonin drugs, noradrenaline drugs, and tyramine foods. The same tables appear after the tranylcypromine chapter.
Clonazepam: seems unchanged.
Propranolol: mentions tremor, akathisia, PTSD, agression and GAD but does not mention specific social phobia / public speaking. Atenolol is not in the book.
Prazosin: alpha-1 blocker used for nightmares. Dose 1-16 mg per day in divided doses.
T3: dose 25 to 50 mcg/day. Augment antidepressant. Can cause mania. Takes days to 8 weeks to work.
Modafinil: appears unchanged. Still lists it for decreasing fatigue in depression and for bipolar depression.
