Common Medications for Mood Disorders and Addiction Treatment
Welcome to the most commonly prescribed drugs to treat dual diagnosis: both substance abuse and mental health disorders. This list is not complete nor should it be taken as medical advice should you suffer from one or both of the conditions mentioned above. The list is a reference for those individuals who want a brief overview about the most commonly prescribed drugs including what they are, how they are used, side effects if any and the names of the drugs under each class. Further information about these drugs should be obtained from your treating physician. Never abruptly stop taking a prescribed medication without first discussing it with the prescribing physician. Abruptly stopping medication can cause withdrawal symptoms and may instigate more serious medical conditions.
