Medication Management and Evaluation
Medication management is a service designed to help individuals manage their medications so they take them on time, all the time, and avoid the dangers of incorrect medication administration. Many psychiatric disorders will require a two-pronged approach for successful treatment: medication combined with therapy or counseling. A psychiatrist can prescribe medication to help with anything from ADHD to anxiety to depression. Medication management is one of two parts of many successful psychiatric treatments. Not all medications will be received or tolerated by patients in the same way. That’s why monitoring medications, medication side effects and possible interactions with other medications is important. Because our mental well-being is directly connected to our overall physical health, stress and trauma can leave us feeling anxious, hopeless and overwhelmed. When these feelings go untreated for long periods of time, major psychological and physical illnesses can result. In addition, associated behaviors can become addictive and destructive. Different medications affect brain chemistry in individuals in different ways. Not everyone will respond to the same prescription in the same way. But having a team of experts on your side can help.
