Book review – Psych Meds Made Simple by Ashley L. Peterson

This book provides all the information you need about Psych Meds in a simple, easy to understand format.

Written by former pharmacist and nurse, Ashley L. Peterson uses her extensive knowledge and clinical experience alongside her own personal experience to give an understanding of how these medications work in the body and why side effects occur.

Beginning with a very readable chapter on Neurotransmitters and Receptors, Ashley gives just enough detail to promote understanding without overwhelming the reader with science. This basic level of understanding makes sense of the information contained in the subsequent chapters, which cover all types of Psych Meds.

A useful book for those wishing to understand more about the action and function of certain medications or with a general interest in medicine.  You can find Ashley on her blog Mental Health @ Home.

  4. 🙂 That looks like a rather interesting book, Karen.

    Psych MEDs will certainly raise a few eyebrows.
