FIGURE 7.1 History of psychiatric drug development. Timeline shows emergence of selected drug mechanisms (solid arrows) and therapeutic agents (plain text) with relevance to schizophrenia (above the line) and depression/anxiety (below the line). S2/D2 = serotonin 5HT2A + dopamine D2 receptor antagonists. TCA = tricyclic antidepressants. MAOI = monoamine oxidase inhibitor. SSRI = selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. SNRI = selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.
