Medication Management Q & A
What is medication management?
In addition to expert counseling services, Boston Neurobehavioral Associates provides psychiatric medication evaluations and ongoing treatments. To provide comprehensive behavioral health care, the therapists collaborate with the psychopharmacology clinicians to ensure you’re taking the right medications in the proper dosages.
Undergoing medication management for psychiatric drugs is important to:
- Ensure your medications don’t interact with one another
- Make sure your medications are a good fit for you
- Get updates and refills as needed
Whether you or your other health care providers think that psychiatric medication may be helpful for you, or if you would like to learn more about psychiatric medications, schedule an initial evaluation at Boston Neurobehavioral Associates.
Why do I need medication management?
Medication management is beneficial for a wide range of mental and emotional disorders. Your provider at Boston Neurobehavioral Associates may recommend medication management if you have:
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Bipolar disorder
Your provider schedules appointments with you regularly to evaluate the efficacy of the drug — they take time to take effect — to ensure it’s working for you. They can make changes to the medication or dosage at any time.
What can I expect during my medication management evaluation?
When you come to Boston Neurobehavioral Associates for your medication management appointment, you can expect compassionate care as soon as you walk through the door. When you sit down with your practitioner, they talk with you about your health history and the behavioral or mental health symptoms you’re experiencing.
It’s important to let your therapist know about:
- All the medications you take, both prescription and over-the-counter
- Your personal history with taking psychiatric drugs
- Any allergies you have
There are many types of psychiatric drugs on the market and more are introduced on a regular basis. Your provider at Boston Neurobehavioral Associates talks with you about which medications may best benefit you, so you can make an educated medication management decision.
