atypical antipsychotic medication

« Back to Glossary Index

Atypical antipsychotics are a class of drugs used to treat mental health conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder by blocking dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain. They have fewer side effects than older antipsychotic medications, but can still cause weight gain, sedation, and movement disorders. Common atypical antipsychotics include paliperidone, risperidone, olanzapine, quetiapine, aripiprazole, and clozapine.
