Do Psychotropic Medications Really Work?  Support for the Efficacy of Psychotropics, Drawn from the Field of Veterinary Psychopharmacology and Animal Studies. In spite of their wide-spread acceptance, use of psychotropics  in mental health remains a source of controversy for many.  Evidence for the efficacy of psychotropics is often based on the effects of those medications during drug trials in non-human mammalian species.  This presentation will summarize evidence from the field of veterinary psychopharmacology and from animal drug trials to provide evidence of the value of medications in altering problematic human symptoms.
