Tranquilizer

A tranquilizer is a drug for treatment of anxiety, agitation, fear, tension and disturbances of the mind. The term was first used by F.F. Yonkman (1953) in his studies of the drug reserpine which when given to animals showed a calming effect. The term tranquilizer is used to reference antipsychotic or neuroleptic medications. It is also a synonym for sedative.
