This paper explores the class of mania and schizophrnia drugs known as psychotic and anti-psychotic drugs.

From the Paper:

"Antipsychotic medications are also called major tranquilizers. It is for the tranquilizing effect that they are used to treat agitation. The earliest antipsychotics, especially thioridazine (Mellaril), proved to be effective in reducing agitation; however at the price of further impairing cognition due to its profound anticholinergic effects. Anticholinergic means blocking the effects of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which can result in dry mouth, loss of memory, increased heart rate, constipation, loss of coordination amongst other things (Slawson,2007, p. 383)."
