Abstract

Patients with neurological disorders commonly have mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. These disorders may have multiple biological underpinnings and worsen over time without treatment. Early diagnosis and biopsychosocial treatment, integrating medical and psychiatric interventions, are highly desirable. Medications have a major role in treatment, although caution must be exercised in terms of potential side effects. Tables compare medications and offer step-by-step approaches and guidelines for the neurologist. Psychiatric consultation and/or management may be required for urgent or severe cases.
