Adult-MedsMedication can be an effective part of the treatment for several psychiatric disorders. A doctor’s recommendation to use medication often raises many concerns and questions. Any Burrell psychiatrist or advanced nurse practitioner who is recommending medication is experienced in treating psychiatric illnesses. He or she will fully explain the reasons for medication use, what benefits the medication should provide, as well as possible risks and side effects and other treatment alternatives.

Psychiatric medication should not be used alone. The use of medication is based on a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and is part of a comprehensive treatment plan designed to meet your unique mental health needs, with ongoing medical assessment and, in most cases, individual psychotherapy. Before recommending any medication, the psychiatrist or advanced nurse practitioner will meet with you and will make a thorough diagnostic evaluation. In some cases, the evaluation may include a physical exam, psychological testing, laboratory tests, other medical tes ts and/or consultation with other medical specialists.

Medications which have beneficial effects may also have side effects, ranging from slightly bothersome to very serious. As each person is different and may have individual reactions to medication, close contact with your Burrell psychiatrist or advanced practice nurse is recommended. Do not stop or change a medication without speaking to the doctor or APN.

When prescribed appropriately by a psychiatrist or advanced practice nurse, and taken as prescribed, medication may reduce or eliminate troubling symptoms and improve your daily functioning.
