This unique ground-breaking work, authored by renowned Harvard-based researchers G I Papakostas and M Fava, represents, by far, the most comprehensive compilation to date of medical studies and reports involving the use of antidepressants for the treatment of major depressive disorder, one of the most prevalent and devastating medical illnesses afflicting mankind today. Given the breadth of the scientific literature focusing on the use of antidepressants for major depressive disorder, this work represents an invaluable tool for clinicians as well as scientists in search of a reference manual to help guide them through the field. The book is organized into four parts; each part focusing on a separate theme that will facilitate the reader to precisely access particular information of interest, whether be it clinical or scientific in nature. Each part is then sub-divided into several thematic chapters, which are enriched with tables and figures citing results from the most influential studies in the field. Finally, clinical and research ?pearls? are listed throughout the book in bullet-point fashion to help summarize the available knowledge-base in a user-friendly format.

Over its two editions, The New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry has come to be regarded as one of the most popular and trusted standard psychiatry texts among psychiatrists and trainees. Bringing together 146 chapters from the leading figures in the discipline, it presents a comprehensive account of clinical psychiatry, with reference to its scientific basis and to the patient's perspective throughout. The New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry, Third Edition has been extensively re-structured and streamlined to keep pace with the significant developments that have taken place in the fields of clinical psychiatry and neuroscience since publication of the second edition in 2009. The new edition has been updated throughout to include the most recent versions of the two main classification systems---the DSM-5 and the ICD-11---used throughout the world for the diagnosis of mental disorders. In the years since publication of the first edition, many new and exciting discoveries have occurred in the biological sciences, which are having a major impact on how we study and practise psychiatry. In addition, psychiatry has fostered closer ties with philosophy, and these are leading to healthy discussions about how we should diagnose and treat mental illness. This new edition recognises these and other developments. Throughout, accounts of clinical practice are linked to the underlying science, and to the evidence for the efficacy of treatments. Physical and psychological treatments, including psychodynamic approaches, are covered in depth. The history of psychiatry, ethics, public health aspects, and public attitudes to psychiatry and to patients are all given due attention.

Given the unacceptably high rates of suffering, disability and premature death experienced by people with treatment-resistant depression and the surprisingly low rates of problems arising from the use of ketamine to treat the disorder, this is a therapy that all patients and their doctors should be discussing. This book summarises the research that has been carried out into ketamine for the treatment of depression over the past 15 years and, most importantly, describes different ways of using ketamine that are both practical and cost–effective. Currently most ketamine therapy is given intravenously in specialised clinics at considerable expense, but the author has successfully treated patients with low-dose sublingual ketamine and his patients have been able to safely take this at home. Profits from the sales of this book will assist further research into the use of ketamine for the treatment of depression.

As many as 35-40% of patients afflicted with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) are treatment resistant, a situation that places a massive emotional and financial burden on society and challenges the mental health profession to develop new treatment paradigms and practices. Even the most astute clinicians can be frustrated when treatment options fail to be effective or work for only a brief time, leaving them to wonder what course to pursue next. Treatment Resistant Depression: A Roadmap for Effective Care gives clinicians and their patients what they need most desperately: a sequence of steps that reflect state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures and integrates all evidence-based treatment modalities -- in short, a roadmap to wellness and recovery. Based primarily on the experiences of the authors, all of whom are leading researchers and/or clinicians in Treatment Resistant Depression and affiliated with the University of Michigan Comprehensive Depression Center, the book also draws upon the clinical research advances and treatment innovations of programs around the world. Although the book's step-by-step organization is clear and easy to follow, its coverage, scope, and level of sophistication are anything but simplified. This book Is comprehensive, addressing treatment options, including psychopharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, neuromodulation (ECT, transcranial magnetic stimulation, deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation), exercise, nutrition, self-management approaches to enhance adherence, behavioral sleep programs, and others Addresses treatment resistant depression across the lifespan, reflecting the diverse demographics of depression, which knows no age, gender, or socioeconomic status Emphasizes the authors' commitment to early intervention and provides techniques for identifying young people who are at risk for developing depression or already expressing symptoms of the disease Recognizes the chronicity of depression, rather than focusing on only the acute stage, and in this way allows for more effective treatment over the patient's lifetime Introduces self-management as playing a critical role in the patient's prognosis, engagement, adherence to clinical steps that help maintain recovery, and self-esteem Promotes the development of new, personalized, and predictive biomarkers to target treatment more effectively. Designed to be useful across disciplines and treatment modalities, the book includes a multitude of tables, graphs, and learning aids that will benefit students, instructors, and clinicians. At the same time, the book promises to be a valuable resource for patients and their families, since Treatment Resistant Depression is both difficult to live with and little understood. No other book offers so much practical guidance, sound research and hope.
