Medication Management

Medications are an increasingly important element and an effective part in the successful treatment of mental illness. We want to ensure our patient's medications are not only appropriate, but effective and safe. Due to how psychiatric medications react differently within a patient’s brain chemistry, the effectiveness of the medications may vary from person to person. Through careful monitoring and discussions about symptom changes and side effects, we work with our patients to find the right medications and treatment plan to improve their mental health.

A Medication Management Service includes the following elements:

  • Patient‐centered approach to care – the service is individualized for a specific patient, focuses on the patient's needs and concerns, and involves the patient in the care process
  • Assessment of medication appropriateness, effectiveness, safety, and adherence. Consideration should be given to accessibility and cost of medications.
  • Collaborative approach to care that involves the patient, caregiver(s), pharmacists, and other healthcare providers
  • Focus on health outcomes.

Call us today if you have any problems with your medicine or if you are worried that it might be doing more harm than good. We may be able to adjust the dose or change your prescription to a different one that may work better for you.
