Antipsychotics are medicines that are mainly used to treat psychotic illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and other mental illness causing severe depression or anxiety. These medications cannot "cure" the illness completely, but they can take away many of the symptoms or make them milder. There are two main types of antipsychotics: atypical antipsychotics and older antipsychotics. Both types are thought to work as well as each other. Antipsychotic (neuroleptic) medications are clozapine (Clozaril), risperidone (Risperdal), aripiprazole (Abilify), olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine (Seroque), and ziprasidone (Geodon).
