Medication management is a service that helps you keep track of the medications you take for underlying mental health and medical conditions.
Medication management aims to ensure that the medications you’re taking are working well for your condition. The providers at Ocean Psychiatry also focus on identifying potential conflicts with your medications that can cause health complications.
You may be a candidate for medication management services if you take more than one medication or if you’re having side effects from the medications you take.
The providers can also assist you with new medications you need to address mental health issues, so that you can take them correctly.
Using the medication management services available at Ocean Psychiatry gives you the assurance that the medications you're taking don’t conflict with each other.
There are some medications that you can’t take at the same time. The providers can identify such conflicts and help you change the medications you take to prevent complications.
The providers also ensure you’re taking the medications correctly and at the right dosage to prevent misuse or overdose.
During your initial medication management consultation at Ocean Psychiatry, the providers spend time reviewing all of the medications you take.
To prepare for your appointment, you should write a list of all the medications you take, including their name, dosage, and why you’re taking it. In addition to prescription medications, you should also list all supplements you take regularly.
The providers review your medication list. If they see any conflicts, they can discuss what changes you can make to your medications to lower your risk for complications. They can also adjust the dosage of your mental health medications if they aren’t working to relieve your symptoms.
Ocean Psychiatry offers ongoing medication management services to monitor all new medications you have to take. They can also explain the effectiveness of each medicine and how to take them safely and on a regular schedule.
