    I have the 5th Edition from class. Much of it goes over my head, but I’m hoping to give more time to reading it to use with clients. It really helps breakdown the major concerns of psychiatric drugs. It is ideal for nurses, as stated on the back of my copy.

    This book I read in my first year as a psychiatric nursing student. I found parts difficult to understand as I had read this prior to classes starting and this book does discuss the disorders but I found the explanations needing to be more simplified so I would recommend to read The The Meaning of Madness before hand as it is extremely simply and able to place imagery. Psychiatric Drugs explained is one I have returned to throughout my nursing studies as a referencing book within assignments and This book I read in my first year as a psychiatric nursing student. I found parts difficult to understand as I had read this prior to classes starting and this book does discuss the disorders but I found the explanations needing to be more simplified so I would recommend to read The The Meaning of Madness before hand as it is extremely simply and able to place imagery. Psychiatric Drugs explained is one I have returned to throughout my nursing studies as a referencing book within assignments and looked back on when needing to clear up any misunderstanding I have had towards medication. You do not need to read the book from front to back as it is easily broken down into manageable chapters from the disorders, what medication treats what, effects of medication and goes onto consent and ethics. Very useful tool for anyone interested or studying mental health.
