Trazadone Hydrochloride (Desyrel) Func Class: Antidepressant, used for insomnia Chem Class: Triazolopyridine Action: inhibits serotonin, norepinephrine uptake by brain
Citalopram (Celexa) Func Class: Antidepressant Chem Class: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) Action: inhibits serotonin uptake but NOT norepinephrine
Escitalopram Oxalate (Lexapro) Func Class: Antidepressant, SSRI Action: inhibits serotonin uptake but NOT norepinephrine
Fluoxetine Hydrochloride (Prozac, Sarafem) Func Class:Antidepressant, SSRI Action: inhibits serotonin uptake but NOT norepinephrine
Paroxetine (Paxil) Func Class: Antidepressant, SSRI Action: inhibits serotonin uptake but NOT norepinephrine or dopamine
Sertraline Hydrochloride (Zoloft) Func Class: Antidepressant Chem Class: SSRI Action: inhibits serotonin reuptake in CNS. thus increasing action of serotonin; does not affect dopamine, norepinephrine
Duloxetine (Cymbalta) Func Class: Antidepressant Chem Class: Serotonin, norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI)
Desvvenlafaxine (Pristiq, Khedezla) Func Class: Antidepressant, serotonin-receptor norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor Action: may work by blocking the central presynaptic reuptake of 5-HT and NE, resulting in increased sustained level of these neurotransmitters
Venlafaxine Hydrochloride (Effexor) Func Class: Second-generation SNRI antidepressant Action: potent inhibitor of neuronal serotonin and norepinephrine uptake
Amitripyline (Elavil, Levate) Func Class: Antidepressant- tricyclic Chem Class: Tertiart amine Action: Blocks reuptake of norepinephrine, serotonin into nerve endings that increase their action
Nortriptyline Hydrochloride Func Class: Antidepressant, tricyclic Action: Blocks reuptake of norepinephrine, serotonin into nerve endings, increasing action of norepinephrine, serotonin in nerve cells
Mirtazapine (Remeron) Func Class: Antidepressant Chem Class: Tetracyclic Action: Blocks reuptake of norepinephrine, serotonin into nerve endings, increasing action of norepinephrine, serotonin in nerve cells
Bupropion (Wellbutrin) Func Class: Antidepressant Chem Class: Aminoketone Action: inhibits reuptake of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin
Alprazolam (Xanax) Func Class: Antianxiety/sedative/hypnotic Chem Class: Benzodiazepine, short/intermediate acting Action: depresses subcortical levels of CNS
Clonazepam (Klonopin) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Chem Class: Benzodiazepine derivative
Diazepam (Valium) Func Class: Antianxiety, anticonvulsant, skeletal muscle relaxant, central action Chem Class: Benzodiazepine, long-acting
Lorazepam (Ativan) Func Class: Sedative-hypnotic, anti anxiety agent Chem Class: Benzodiazepine, short-acting
Temazepam (Restoril) Func Class: Sedative-hypnotic Chem Class: Benzodiazepine, short-intermediate acting Action: CNS depression
Buspirone Hyrochloride (Buspar) Func Class: Antianxiety, sedative Chem Class: Azaspirodecanedione Action: inhibits action of serotonin
Amphetamine (Adderall) Func Class: CNS stimulant, treats ADHD
Dexmethylphenidate Hydrochloride (Focalin) Func Class: CNS stimulant, psychostimulant Action: incdreases release of norepinephrine and dopamine into the extra neuronal space, also blocks reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine into the presynaptic neuron
Lisdexamfetamine Dimsylate (Vyvanse) Func Class: CNS stimulant Chem Class: Amphetamine Action: increases release of norepinephrine and dopamine in cerebral cortex
Methylphenidate (Concerta) Func Class: cerebral stimulant Chem Class: piperidine derivative Action: increases release of norepinephrine and dopamine in cerebral cortex
Lithium Func Class: Antimanic/ antipsychotic Chem Class: Alkali metal ion salt
Aripiprazole (Ability) Func Class: Antipsychotic/neuroleptic
Risperidone (Risperdal) Func Class: Antipsychotic Chem Class: Benzisoxazole derivative
Quetapine Fumarate (Seroquel) Func Class: Antipsychotic Chem Class: Dibenzodiapepine Action: Functions as an antagonist at multiple neurotransmitter receptors in the brain
Divalproex Sodium (valproate) Func Class: Anticonvulsant, vascular headache suppressant Chem Class: Carboxylic acid derivative Action: Increases GABA in the brain which decreases. seizure activity
Phenytoin (Dilantin) Func Class: Anticonvulsant/ antidysrhythmic Chem Class: Hydantoin Action: Inhibits spread of seizure activity in motor cortex by altering ion transport
Gabapentin (Neurontin, Gralise) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Chem Class: GABA analogue Action: May increase seizure threshold
Lamotrigine (Lamictal) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Chem Class: Phenyltriazine Action: May inhibit voltage-sensitive sodium channels, decreasing seizures
Levetiracetam (Keppra) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Action: may inhibit nerve impulses by limiting influx of sodium ions across cell membrane in motor cortex
Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Action: may inhibit nerve impulses by limiting influx of sodium ions across cell membrane in motor cortex
Pregabalin (Lyrica) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Action: Binds to high-voltage calcium channels in CNS tissues; this may lead to anticonvulsant action
Topiramate (Topamax) Func Class: Anticonvulsant Chem Class: Monosaccharide derivative Action: Increased GABA activity; may prevent seizure spread
Benztropine Mesylate (Cogentin) Func Class: Cholinergic blocker, antiparkinson agent Chem Class :Tertiary amine
Ropinirole Hydrochloride (Requip) Func Class: Antoparkinson agent Chem Class: Dopamine-receptor agonist

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
