What is it?
First and foremost, effective medication management takes time. A detailed history and ongoing discussion of your response to medications are essential to providing excellent care.
Furthermore, when starting or adjusting medications, we request that you return frequently to be sure that the interventions are effective. We will weigh you regularly and may check your blood pressure or request additional laboratory tests to monitor your reaction to medications.
Most people who benefit from psychiatric medications do best when medication management is combined with psychotherapy.
