Indications for use of psychotropic drugs

Classification of psychotropic drugs for clinical action reflects and indications for use of one or another drug, but gives only a General orientation.
Looking closer to practical needs of indications to application of those or other psychotropic substances American psychiatrist Raihan ((F. A. Freihan) formulated the theory of "targets", according to which psychotropic drugs are distributed in accordance with what psychopathological education they act. The symptoms of schizophrenia, for example, these "targets" according to the concept of Rihana serve the state of anxiety and arousal, crazy tensions, fearful and aggressive agitation, stereotypical-pretentious behavior, etc. In symptomatology of affective illness - and gipomaniakale maniakale condition, ajitirovanne depression.
When the involutionary psychosis - delusional disorder, and so on, the symptoms of acute psihosindrom - delirious state, hallucinate etc. In symptoms of chronic psihosindrom - constant state of anxiety, confusion, etc., In the symptoms of psychoneurosis and psychopathy - feeling painful tension, episodes of aggressive explosions, nevladine its affects etc.
Each psychotropic drug was tested in relation to the long list of psychopathological symptoms, syndromes and conditions, and was given a kind of form of action parameter.
Although the registry "targets" was drawn up without the system, in theory, "targets", as seen from studies of the Soviet psychiatrists, there is a "grain".
Indeed, many psychotropic drugs have not only common action in accordance with their affiliation to the aforementioned groups (neuroleptics, antidepressants), but elective action against some psychopathological formations.
General and selective (selective) effects of psychotropic drugs do not occur randomly, but natural: on the General biological level disorders (hebephrenic excitation, catatonic, excitation, catatonic stupor) psychotropic drugs manifest their total, group action, differing among themselves only by quantity (intensity). The more psychopathological disorders are approaching specifically human level (delusional disorders neurozopodobne, personal), the greater is elective party actions of psychotropic drugs, especially their effects qualitatively differentiated. For example, Librium provides for disorders seen in the General level of sedative and antidepressant effect. Disorders as specifically human lesion level, for example when obsessive syndrome, Librium begins to manifest his elective action in respect of this disorder.
The ratio of total and elective actions of psychotropic drugs is still poorly studied and therefore the current classification is based mainly on the basis of an assessment of the overall effectiveness of these drugs by the intensity of this action.
