Medication Management

Stop Suffering.

We see a lot of apprehension around medications, which is good. No one wants to be on medication unless they need to be. Many patients have residual symptoms from their anxiety or depression and that’s really when it’s time to discuss medication management. We see a lot of ‘ I thought everyone dealt with this’ or ‘ It’s not as bad as some people have it’ These comparison statements or thoughts that it’s normal to feel like this are something we try to help work on with my patients. Your problems no matter how big or small matter and should never be compared or diminished based on what someone else is working through.

Seek Help

A session is like a getting-to-know-you meeting. We want to know the patient’s thoughts and feelings about medication and treatments, what has worked for them before, what they have tried, and what their long-term goals are. We need to know any medical conditions and other medications they are taking. The goal of the session is to ensure each patient is happy and agrees with their treatment plan even if that means not adding a new medication.
