Psychopharmacology (neuroleptics) that treat Schizophrenia

Storyboard Text

  • My health care provider told me that drugs called neuroleptics may help decrease psychotic symptoms.
  • Conventional (first generation) antipsychotic medications are dopamine antagonists.
  • That's right! These drugs manage the symptoms of the disease, but do not cure schizophrenia.
  • Atypical (second-generation) are both dopamine and serotonin antagonists.
  • The second-generation antipsychotics not only diminish positive symptoms but also, lessen the negative signs of lack of volition, motivation, social withdrawal, and anhedonia.
  • First generation antipsychotics target the positive signs of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations, delusions.
