The following is a list of the most commonly prescribed depression, anxiety, mood and behavior related drugs.  We've included the brand name, generic name, the general category of the drug such as antidepressant or stimulant. 

A "BB" in the row next to the drug signifies it has an FDA Black Box which is the most extreme warning given to a drug by the FDA.  Click on "BB" to see the warning for that drug (this section is in many drugs, so little time).

The AE in the row next to the drug name is a link to the Adverse Events reported to the FDA's Medwatch Program for that drug.  Here we give the top adverse events connected with that drug.
