Initial Evaluation | Target Symptoms | Use of Multiple Medications | Medication Selection | Generic Substitution | Drug Interactions
The art and skillful practice of psychopharmacology have multiple
facets, including establishing proper diagnoses, identifying medication-responsive
target symptoms, ruling out nonpsychiatric causes of a patient's
symptomatology, noting the presence of other medical problems that
will influence drug selection, evaluating concomitant medications that
may cause drug–drug interactions, and evaluating personal
and family histories of medication response.
