After the initial psychiatric evaluation, patients will have the option of returning for a 30-minute “medication management” route of treatment. Every patient will be guided by psychotherapeutic principles with a focus on maximizing treatment through psychopharmacological interventions. What this means is that conversations with your clinician will never solely be about medications. As psychiatric medications are complex and often have interactions, careful consideration will also be taken to how these medications affect medical conditions. As such, blood, urine, EKG, or imaging studies may be utilized to monitor and assist with treatment when appropriate. Ultimately, the goal is to obtain the maximum beneficial response from the medication being prescribed without over medicating.
