Clozapine is a unique antipsychotic with robust evidence supporting its use in people with treatment-resistant schizophrenia. While clozapine often represents the best hope for recovery, it is associated with severe and enduring adverse reactions, which can delay prescribing and increase morbidity and mortality.
The Clozapine Handbook is the only textbook available that provides a rapidly accessible source of information and advice on all aspects of clozapine use. Compiled from the latest literature and written by expert, practicing clinicians, it is an invaluable resource for any mental health practitioner.
The availability of this handbook should help to faciliate the appropriate use of this unique medication and have a positive and far-reaching impact on the lives of many patients and families around the world.
