In this book, which is intended for patients as well as doctors, Sandson, the director of education and residency at Sheppard Pratt Health System in Maryland, uses actual case histories, including narrations from patients, to illustrate all the known interactions of the most frequently used psychiatric medications. The interactions include not only those of psychiatric drugs with each other, but also interactions of those drugs used in other branches of medicine. Sorting through all those permutations was, says Sandson, “mind-numbingly complex.” Thoroughly indexed and referenced, the book also includes a self-evaluation test, so readers can be sure that their own drug regimen is safe.
