Choosing Medication Treatment




Making the decision to take psychiatric medications as part of your or your child's treatment strategy is an important one. As with all medications, there are potential risks as well as benefits to each prescribed drug. It is your prescriber's responsibility to share with you all information regarding the medications that are offered. We would also like to provide you with information on what conditions each medication is used for and on potential side effects and alternative treatment options. It is important that you have the information necessary to weigh the advantages of taking the medication with the possible risks involved. This information will also help you identify side effects if they emerge. Click HERE for more information on partnering with your medical provider to make these decisions.
 
Below are two lists in alphabetical order by the brand name and generic name of medications that are widely used for mental health disorders. If you click on the medication name in the first column, you will download an information sheet (PDF) to help you make an informed choice and have an educated discussion with your prescriber. The first list is alphabetical by brand name; the second list is alphabetical by generic name.
