Tranquilizer Drugs Market: Overview

  • Tranquilizers are drugs that reduce mental tension, relieve anxiety, and result in calm outlook without producing any marked degree of hypnosis or sedation. Tranquilizers are used extensively and occupy an important place in psychological disorders.  
  • Atypical antipsychotics or second generation antipsychotics are a type of tranquilizers majorly used for the treatment of several psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia. Moreover, they are utilized as an adjunct therapy in the treatment of major depressive disorder. Antipsychotics generally fall into two categories: typical and atypical.
  • The conventional or typical antipsychotics were first developed in the 1950s and were widely prescribed for the treatment of severe mental disorders. Thorazine (chlorpromazine) and Haldol (haloperidol) were the most commonly used typical antipsychotics. However, these drugs exhibited severe side effects, in response to which the pharmaceutical companies introduced atypical antipsychotics with reduced number of extrapyramidal side effects.
  • Atypical antipsychotics were approved in the 1990s for treating various psychiatric disorders. These drugs proved to be more effective among treatment-resistant patients compared to the typical antipsychotics.
  •  Introduction of drugs with greater efficacy and reduced side effects along with increasing prevalence of psychiatric disorders is likely to boost the tranquilizer drugs market in the near future
