Name That Medication

Remember "Name That Tune"? Maybe not. Here's a new game show for social work exam preppers, Name That Medication! First episode, name the following meds from the A section of  Wikipedia's A-Z list of psychotropic meds.


__________ - antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and agitation

Answer: Abilify


__________ - stimulant used to treat ADHD

__________ - used as a sleep aid, cause drowsiness

__________ - used to treat alcohol addiction

__________ - used to slow the progression of dementia

__________ - tricyclic antidepressant

__________ - benzodiazepine, used to relieve anxiety

Remember, all the meds begin with the letter A. The dementia and tricyclic may be an especially tough answers to summon. The others you may be able to get.

How'd you do? Check your answers here.

If you got even just a couple of them, great! You can probably consider yourself med-wise as far as the ASWB exam goes. Nothing like these question appears on the actual exam, of course. For realistic, real-exam-like questions, try the practice tests covered in previous posts and linked all over this site. Good luck!
