Book Title: Medication Fact Sheets: A Behavioral Medication Reference for Educators, 5th Edition
Publisher: Research Press
Author: Dean E. Konopasek
It is essential for teachers, counselors, social workers, and psychologists to have a basic understanding of medications that are frequently used to treat students with psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, depression and other mood disorders, and anxiety. This newly revised edition from Research Press serves as a handy and easy-to-understand reference for nonmedical professionals. The author provides a brief overview of over 100 prescription medications. Each one-page, reproducible fact sheet identifies what the medication is for, what it does, potential side effects, dosages, and in what forms it is available. User-friendly appendixes separate medications by class, pregnancy risk, and controlled substance categories. A CD providing PDFs of the fact sheets is included.
