Role of Psychopharmacology in Mental Health

Psychopharmacology has become a major approach to treatment in primary mental health disorders. However, combined psychiatric and medical illness can give rise to some challenging diagnostic problems. Furthermore, drug treatment of patients with such illnesses can involve important drug-disease interactions and drug-drug interactions. One should keep in mind the issues that arise when an emotionally troubled patient would benefit from a psychotropic drug but a concurrent medical illness complicates this treatment. An awareness of both the medical and psychiatric issues involved may make successful treatment possible. There is definitely a need for further research in the field, especially regarding major unresolved issues such as the proper selection of patients for whom antidepressants are indicated, clinical and biological predictors of treatment response, and the development of new treatments with superior efficacy and safety. Meanwhile, an empathic psychotherapeutic alliance coupled with careful clinical and pharmacological monitoring are the essential prerequisites for successful treatments.
