Abstract

Because new applications for known medications are emerging, focusing on medications rather than syndromes enables the primary care physician to apply known medications to new indications. The article is accordingly organized around classes of medications rather than diagnostic entities. To be truly effective, adolescent psychopharmacology must be practiced in the context of a broader knowledge of adolescent development and psychodynamics.
