  • Okay, so riding off of that question asked by the lady in the audience, can you briefly discuss the types of disorders treated with psychotropic drugs?
  • MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTHVIEW

  • I sure can!
  •     
  • Psychotropic drugs that are commonly prescribed to treat patients with mental illnesses are antidepressants, antipsychotics, benzodiazepines and anticholinergic drugs.
  • What about behavioural disorders? Are they not treated with psychotropic medications?

  •     
  • Disorders that are usually treated with psychotropic drugs include mood disorders, schizophrenia and its counterparts, and anxiety disorders.
