***Schizophrenics are most common patients 
****no trade name bc not medication: in 1940s/50s Delsyd (T) contracted by 
military now Delsyd is a schedule 1 drug  *****Molly helps relieve anxiety in individuals with PTSD (rat evidence)  Pharmacodynamics: action mechanism usually synaptic for behavioral effect

50 )   Toxicology: toxic or harmful drug effects (LD 50 , TD 50 , TI)   Threshold dose: only one subject has been effected by drug (used for minimum 
dosage) 
Descriptors: 
ED 50  (effective dose): dose at which ½ of subjects are effected by drug  MED (minimum effective dose, 100%): important to save $$$, reduce potential 
side effects (potential dependence, abuse, addiction), and beat out the current 
drugs 
TD
50  (toxic dose): dose at which ½ of subjects experience toxic effects of drug  LD 50  (lethal dose): dose at which ½ of subjects die from drug  TI (therapeutic index): higher #s are safer for TI because that means it will take a 
lot of Rx doses to kill somebody; when a TI is low, it might only take a few pills to 
kill somebody
