Cafer's Psychopharmacology is an essential resource for any prescriber of psychiatric medication. To help you match trade names with generic names of 270 medications, this book features mascots akin to the Xyzal "Wise Owl" and Myrbetriq Bladder characters. Each medication's mascot is incorporated into a visual-mnemonic framework designed for recollection of pharmacokinetic interactions. For instance, CYP2C19 substrates are represented as flowers with CYP2C19 inhibitors as watering cans to make the flowers grow. CYP1A2 substrates are trees to be chopped down by axes (CYP1A2 inducers). Lithium is a battery and anything that interferes with its renal excretion is depicted as a battery charger.
