There are currently 24 antipsychotic drugs licensed in the UK. These are listed alphabetically to the left of this screen. Some of them also come in a depot injection as well as tablets – these are listed separately below.

Some of these drugs have more than one name. You might know a drug by its generic name or you might know it by a trade name (see our page about drug names for more information on this). 

The table below lists all the possible names you might know an antipsychotic by, including both generic and trade names, and directs you to our page of detailed information about that drug.
