The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry is the leading clinical reference for handling prescribing problems as encountered in daily practice and for formulating prescribing policy.
This essential guide is for anyone responsible for prescribing, dispensing or administering drugs for patients with mental health disorders. All the evidence has been reviewed and summarized succinctly by an expert team of psychiatrists and pharmacists. This new edition makes greater use of tables and boxes to facilitate quick reference and includes new sections on cytochrome-mediated interactions and psychiatric side effects of non-psychotropic drugs.
Clinically relevant - Chapters address plasma monitoring, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, children and adolescents, substance abuse and special patient groups. Each section has a full reference list. It covers prescribing drugs outside their licensed indications and their interaction with substances such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine.
Trainees will gain important information regarding the rational, safe and effective use of medications for patients with mental illness. Experienced clinicians will find excellent guidance regarding more complex issues that they may not encounter regularly.
Long recognized as an international trailblazer in mental health care, the Maudsley Hospital earned its reputation for excellence in both in-patient and community care. It is highly regarded for its research, and pioneered the use of clinical neuroscience. You can trust

Very useful handy app
It's like walking with the book in hand. The fact it doesn't require Internet connection once stored in the phone is much more nice.
I certainly have been making very good use of this app and my money, though I would say the price is rather bit expensive. Overall no regrets and would strongly recommend.
I have initially bought the paper version of this, only to later find this app.
Didn't yet read through the paper version, but already read almost 2 chapters of this whilst I was on the train and airplane.
I love it cause it's very handy. The title says it all, very good reference book, major updates compared with previous edition, highly recommended!
Poor search function/lack of index lets this down
I really hoped that this app would save me lugging around the paper version & be easy to use in a busy clinic.
Whilst the content is excellent the very poor search function & lack of any index renders it next to useless when trying to find information quickly.
E.g. I wanted to check some issues around lamotrigine. Typing this into the search function yielded no results, in the index version of the paper copy there are 17 references & I was able to quickly find the information I required. There are many other similar examples.
Very disappointed & frustrated spent money on this, having to by book later as do not consider fit for purpose.
