Antidepressants are a class of drugs meant to reduce the symptoms of depressive disorders. They work by trying to correct the chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Chemical imbalances may be responsible for changes in mood and behavior. There are five types of antidepressants: SNRIs (Serotonin and Noradrenaline Reuptake Inhibitors), SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), TCAs (Tricyclic Antidepressants), Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs), and Noradrenaline and specific serotoninergic antidepressants (NASSAs).

Anticonvulsants are a medication used to control/prevent seizures. There are a large number of anti-convulsant drugs including, but limited to phenobarbital, phenytoin, and carbamazepine.

Anti-anxiety medication is commonly used for alleviating the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorders. Anti-anxiety drugs that are habit-forming such as Benzodiazepines are commonly used on a short-term or as-needed basis. Benzodiazepines are the most widely prescribed type of medication for anxiety because they work quickly and effectively. Types of Benzodiazepines include Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Valium (diazepam), Ativan (lorazepam).
