From Zenit: The accepted wisdom is that the arrival of chlorpromazine in asylum medicine in 1955 kicked off a psychopharmacological revolution, this great advance in care. Chlorpromazine is remembered today as the first "antipsychotic," and soon the field gained new antidepressants, and new anti-anxiety drugs. Then, starting in the late 1980s, a second generation of psychiatric drugs came to market, said to be safer and more effective than the first. . . .
