N Miscellaneous 1 D Medications

This chapter includes medications that are commonly used in psychiatric practice but that do not fall into the conventional categories of psychotherapeutic drugs. Many medications used in general medical practice have side effects such as sedation, stimulation, or anxiolysis. These side effects are often exploited in psychiatry to target specific symptoms (e.g., insomnia, anergia). Other drugs, such as psychostimulants, have precise indications for psychiatric usage. Many more medications than are discussed here are included in the psychiatric armamentarium.
