Psychiatric side-effects of medications: recent developments

  • Nora Turjanski and Geoffrey G. Lloyd
Abstract

Medications often induce neuropsychiatric side-effects. This article reviews psychiatric side-effects that are well known and describes those induced by recently developed medications. Therapeutic innovations have been prominent in the treatment of HIV infection, Parkinson's disease and epilepsy and therefore psychiatric side-effects caused by these agents are described in more detail.
