Drug Therapies

Psychopharmacology is the field of study focused on the use of medications to impact neurological functioning and behaviors. Psychotropic medications, used in consultation with medical professionals, are tools to address the symptoms of major psychiatric disorders. As you learned in your assigned reading from the text in this unit, there are many classes and types of drugs used by medical professionals. For this discussion, select one type of drug therapy (antipsychotic, antidepressant, or antianxiety) and address the following, using headings to match content in each bullet point:

  • Specific symptoms and their intensity that would indicate a consultation may be appropriate.
  • Side effects that may interfere with taking medications as directed.
  • Potential benefits a partner or family member may notice.

It is highly encouraged that you create section headers for each discussion based on the required content. This helps ensure that peers and your instructor will see that you addressed all required content clearly. Support your ideas with references to the course texts, articles from this learning unit, articles from the Optional Readings, or articles from peer-reviewed journals that you locate in the Capella University Library.
