Psychopharmacology or the administration of medicines that explicitly treat the symptoms of mental illness have been practiced since the discovery that neurochemicals in the brain are responsible for the development of these conditions. Specific medicines target specific neurochemicals in the brain by inhibiting or increasing the release of neurotransmitters to control and regulate particular symptoms. A lot of people have benefited from these medications. Although there were also some, who have experienced the opposite. Bottom-line is, each person responds differently to the type of drug prescribed, and it is critical that proper education on these medications are attained.
