Antidepressants and antipsychotics are the most frequently used of all psychiatric medications. Many prescribers were not trained to conceptualize them in terms of their clinical pharmacology (ie, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics), yet this is critical to understanding how these medications affect patients, including why some patients do not respond as expected of the “usual” patient. This session will explain a means of understanding the medications classified as antidepressants and antipsychotics in terms of their pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics that will help mental health professionals develop better treatment plans for patients and make better mid-course corrections when needed.
