A mental disorder also known as a psychiatric or mental disease is a behavioral or mental pattern which causes a disability to normally function in common life, with perceptible lack of social skills. There are mental disorder medications that are widely used to cure certain symptoms of depressions, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and ADHD.
There are many types of medical preparations that cure mental diseases. Anti-anxiety pills, anti-depressants, anti-psychotic, stimulants and mood stabilizers are the drugs most commonly used in this field.
In order to receive the most effective treatment antidepressants may be prescribed in different combinations together with various drug types. It is also important to keep in mind that mental disorder medications often require four to six weeks until they become fully effective. However, if one particular pill doesn’t help to a patient, there are usually many others worth taking a shot. There is another rule - if for whatever reason you need to stop taking your medications for mental health, you must do this step by step, slowly decreasing the dose over a few weeks, sometimes even months. Should you quit your antidepressants too quickly, it may lead to your mental disorder coming back, and you might feel even worse than before. Always discuss any dosage changes with your doctor.
Anxiety treatment drugs which are used most often to cure anxiety disorders are anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, and beta-blockers.
Antidepressants, except for curing depression help with anxiety disorder symptoms, too. SSRIs and benzodiazepines are very effective drugs that work very well against various types of anxieties. However, there are strong side effects –high risk of addiction (do not use for a long term), irritability, drowsiness and difficulties with concentration.
Beta-blockers help in managing some of the physical anxiety symptoms like sweating and trembling which cause high blood pressure and different heart conditions. Side effects that occur most often after using such drugs are dizziness, fatigue, weakness and cold hands.
Drugs to treat depression are known as anti-depressants. They balance neurotransmitters in human brains which influence moods and emotional responses. Anti-depressants work on dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine.
