Psychotropic agents in dermatology.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.


In this article, relatively detailed explanation of the use of selected psychopharmacologic agents is given along with their dermatologic and psychodermatologic indications. For a more complete description of the use of these medications, the reader is advised to consult standard textbooks on psychopharmacology and the Physician's Desk Reference. It should be emphasized that psychiatric consultation should be obtained whenever feasible. Yet for a significant proportion of psychodermatologic patients who refuse psychiatric input, the judicious use of these medications may provide much-needed assistance in their recovery from psychodermatologic disorders.
