Psychiatric medication management is the process of working with a psychiatrist to ensure that your psychiatric medications are effective and safe. This may include changing doses, switching, or adding new medications.
It is essential to have regular Psychiatric Medication Management appointments because mental health conditions can change over time. Medications that were once effective may become less so or may cause new side effects.
During a Psychiatric Medication Management appointment, your psychiatrist will ask about your symptoms, how your medications are working, and any side effects you may be experiencing. They will then make recommendations about changes to your mental health medication list.
