Antidepressants
Past, Present and Future
edited by Sheldon H. Preskorn

A comprehensive review of the current status of antidepressants - how we arrived at this point in their evolution and where we are going in both the near and the long term.

Antidepressants: Past, Present and Future employs both a scientific and historical approach to accomplish these goals. This volume is intended for practitioners who use antidepressants on a daily basis in their practice as well as for the student and researcher. Each will find that it provides a comprehensive and logical approach to this important group of medications. This book is being published as we mark the end of the first 50 years of the modern antidepressant era.

Antidepressants: Past, Present and Future is an ideal reference for scientists, researchers and clinicians in the fields of pharmacology and toxicology, neurology and psychiatry.
