Medication management remains the most common service that Psychiatrists provide today. Deciding on and managing a patient’s medication is a delicate process and many factors are taken into consideration before a prescription is written. Allergies, family medical history, and a variety of patient preferences are discussed prior to choosing a medication.
Once medication is prescribed, the patient is monitored through follow-up visits to make any modifications necessary. Typically, adjustments occur due to lack of efficacy of the medication for a particular patient or the patient experiencing undesirable side effects from the medication.
