Have you ever done what feels like twenty things to try to cope or deal with something and it feels as though none of them worked?
Are you searching for a new way of life or something to help you over this gap you are feeling?
Medication management might be a solution for you.
When depression and anxiety begin interfering with daily life, therapy is recommended.
For some, however, traditional therapy falls short of their specific needs and they do not see a substantial change in behavior and/or emotion. At this point, many doctors choose to prescribe a psychopharmacological drug, usually made of a synthetic chemical compound that helps to compensate for imbalanced brain chemistry.
Sometimes, medication is needed to bridge the gap that has occurred either from an absence of therapy or to help them to take another step forward with it.
It can vary for each person, but generally medication may be a good idea after a series of therapy sessions, where both the patient and therapist are not seeing any improvements.
Also, it could be when physical symptoms of a mental disorder began to show, occur or become unbearable. Medication is an option if there was event in which safety is a concern, serious conditions like this should be discussed with your primary care or mental health professional.
Prescribed medications play a key role in the treatment of co-occurring disorders. They can reduce symptoms and prevent relapses of a psychiatric disorder.
Medications can also help patients minimize cravings and maintain abstinence from addictive substances.
