What is medication management?

Medication management involves regular reviews of your prescription drugs to see if you need them and that you’re on the correct dose.

Over the years, you can collect various prescriptions, some of which you might not benefit from anymore. And your needs can change. What might have been the right medication a few years ago could now be unnecessary, or there could be a newer, better drug available. Or the dose of a medicine you’ve been taking for years might need reducing.

The Neuropsychiatric Care Center team also looks at the interactions between your medicines. Certain drug combinations make you more likely to suffer side effects, some of which can be dangerous.

You might have started taking supplements or herbal medications without mentioning them. But these, too, can interact with prescription drugs. Your current medications may be less effective than they were, or you might develop new side effects. Medication management helps with all these problems.

What does medication management involve?

During a routine medication management appointment, your psychiatrist reviews your prescriptions and other treatments. They ensure that you’re taking the best combination of medicines for your mental health condition. They also run tests, assess your current needs, and make adjustments where there’s a better choice.

Medication management for mental health disorders takes considerable expertise in psychopharmacology and psychiatry. The Neuropsychiatric Care Center team understands all the possible effects of your prescriptions and how best to relieve symptoms using medication.

  • Is medication the best treatment for psychiatric disorders?

Prescription drugs, including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, stimulants, and anti-anxiety medicines, play a significant role in treating and managing many mental health disorders. They usually work best with other treatments, like psychotherapy (talk therapy or counseling) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

Any medication you take should be part of a carefully thought-out treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

You might be considering how to reduce your medication, or you might be unwilling to take drugs for your condition. If there are alternatives, the Neuropsychiatric Care Center can give you the information you need to make the right decision for your health.
