Medication/Prescription Drug Management
Over the past 20 years (since I have been in practice), there have been exciting developments in medicines for mental illnesses. Many new products have been introduced and there have breakthroughs in our understanding of how these products can work for certain patients.
As a result of the increase in the number of medicines available and of the combination therapies that are possible, it has become important to carefully manage the use of medicines for patients with mental illness. Some medicines work better on certain types of patients but not as well on others. Some medicines have side effects for some people and not others.
It is important for patients to have a relationship with a psychiatrist who is experienced and knowledgeable about the vast array of medicines available today. Managing medicines for patients has become a significant part of my practice and services for patients. Please call me if I can help you with your medicine management.
