QuestionAnswerAdditional information
SSRI to treat OCD along with depression
Anticonvulsant that blocks voltage sensative sodium channels and increases GABA
Atypical antidepresent: Pain syndromes (fibromyalgia) Most norepinephrin reuptake inhibition (still less than serotonin however).
atypical antipsychotic - next generation risperidone. Increases QT wave, cardiac risk and weight gain.
This anticonvusant revs up the liver for metabolism, and will decrease the drug levels for itself and all other drugs after 2 weeks of adminstration
tremor, vomiting, ataxia, dysarthria, confusion, seizures
SSRI with anticholinergic activity and the corresponding side effects: dry mouth, urinary retention
SSRI with some dopamine activity
Side effects of this anticonvulsant are FEW. (sedation, Steven Johnson reaction)
Sleep distubences, nausea, sexual dysfunction, delayed ejacualtion are side effects of what class of drug
What receptors do typical antipsycotics block
Anticonvulsant. Effective against acute phase of mania, mania recurrence, and bipolar II. Not a good antidepressant. P450 hepatic metabolism
treats bipolar. eliminated entirely through the kidneys with sodium. 2nd messenger regulation (phosphatidyl inositol system, G protein, gene expression regulation.
Atypical antidepressant (not an SSRI) Serotonin presynaptic reuptake inhibitor post synaptic 5-HT2 post synaptic antagonist. Sedating and is hepatically metabolized
Atypical antipsychotic. Large QT elevation. all symptoms are lower
Anticonvulsant: Mechanism of action is unknown but likely works by increasing GABA and inhibiting voltage sensative sodium channels
What is the rank of weight gain and CM risk from greatest to least (first letter)
Atypical antipsychotic - used in those with parkinsons. antidepressant (norepi)
high potentcy antipsychotic
Side effect of this anticonvulsant: Sedation, weight gain, allopecia, tremor, INSULIN RESISTANCE, THROMBOCYTOPENIA, HEPATOTOXICITY, TERATOGEN (NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS)
atypical antipsychotic. Role as an antidepressent. Causes agitation and akathesia
Bad SSRI for BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy)
High EPSP, tardive dyskinesia,
Atypical antidepressant: rarely treats depression, good for insomnia. Causes priaprism
Atypical antidepressant: Depression with pain syndromes. Serotonin and norepi reuptake inhibition. similar to venlafax
Not an SSRI: MA not understood but increases Norepi and dopamine. can cause seizure so never give to an eating disorder patient.
Atypical antidepressant: Antagonist to presynaptic alpha 2 adrenergic auto-receptor. Stops the negative feedback
QuestionAnswerAdditional information
Anticonvulsant: Inhibits voltage senitive sodium channels, inhibits glutamate release, Blocks calcium.
Side effect is diabetes insipidus, hypothyroidism, weight gain, SA node disruption, Ebsteins abnormality (in utero heart defect), and leukocytosis
SSRI: treats anxiety. half life is 24 hours
What neurotransmitter is released from the nerves innervated by serotonin nerves
shorter D2 binding, 5HT2A antoagonism are the main mechanisms of action for what drugs
Anticonvulsant: Great for mania, not good for depressed state.
What does dopamine suppress
Anticonvulsant: not good for the treatment of manic phase, but GOOD FOR TREATMENT OF DEPRESSED PHASE WITHOUT FLIPPING PT. INTO MANIA
treatment for atypical depression subtypes. Blocks metabolism of serotonin norepi an dopamine. Nonreversible. Can't eat tyrosine rich food.
Fever, delirium, Hyper/hypotension, neuromuscuar excitability. can cause death
SSRI - half life with 24 hours. few drug interactions so it is great for someone on multiple medications
Atypical antipsychotic.Alteration on haldol. Works as an atypical at low doses, at high doses it becomes typical. Pediatric use. 2 week injection. Lower cardiac and weight gain ris
Atypical antidepressant: Used for generalized anxiety disorder. Norepi and serotonin reuptake inhibitor. great for those on many medications

Anticonvulsant that increases the concentration of other drugs
Atypical antidepressant: Some antihistamine effect = weight gain and sedation. Great for cancer patients
atypical antipsycotic. High metabolic risk, sedating, significant weight gain
