Are you experiencing mental health symptoms that require medication? What types of medications are there?
Patients who seek a therapist sometimes need the help of a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is able to recognize symptoms and pair it with the best medication that he or she sees fit. Millions of people take medications to improve their quality of life. Here are some examples of medication based on most common symptoms:
1. People suffering from Schizophrenia or other Psychotic illnesses
◦ Antipsychotics. These antipsychotics can be broken down into two types, typical antipsychotics, and atypical antipsychotics. These include but are not limited to Thorazine, Trilafon, Abilify, Risperdal, and Seroquel
2. People suffering from Depression tend to be prescribed antidepressants. Although this is a very general term, there are many different classifications of these antidepressants
◦ Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Lexapro, Prozac, and Zoloft
◦ Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) such as Emsam and Nardil
◦ Tricyclics (TCAs) such as Asendin, Pamelor, and Tofranil. Although these antidepressants are older, they still can be used today
