An Article on Psychotrophic Medications Reviewed
This is a 6 page review of the current literature available on psychotropic medications. Five articles are discussed. The review of the literature available about the concerns, usage and effects of psychotropic medication is fairly extensive. Researchers have examined use in children, adolescents and adults as well as in pregnant women. Many of the articles provide good details on the different medications available as well as their contraindications and side effects. Although the physiological mechanisms are not completely analyzed yet in the field of medicine psychotropic drugs are used widely across the country. In fact, many critics have concluded that children have been overly prescribed medications as in the case of Ritalin, the most common psychotropic medication prescribed for children which has increased in usage by over 700 percent in the last ten years.
