What is medication management?

Medication management is one of the psychiatric services available at Alevea Mental Health. Many people who struggle with a mental health condition benefit from prescription medication to manage symptoms while they go through psychotherapy.

The type of medication you need depends on your diagnosis. For some mental health disorders, there are many medications that work in different ways. Finding the right prescription and dose to help you feel better takes time. 

Dr. Widlacki is an experienced board-certified psychiatrist who uses the most advanced treatments available to help his patients feel better.

  • Depression

What happens during a medication management consultation?

When you visit Alevea Mental Health for a medication management consultation, your provider conducts a comprehensive evaluation to properly diagnose your mental health condition. 

Then they explain their treatment recommendations, including the types of medication that may benefit your mental well-being. Your provider schedules regular medication management follow-up appointments to monitor your symptoms and side effects and adjust your prescription and dose as needed.

The goal of medication management is to find the right prescription and dose that provides the best symptom relief with the fewest side effects. The frequency of your medication management visits may depend on your diagnosis, medication needs, and personal preferences. 

Your need for medication management may be short- or long-term based on your diagnosis. For conditions like depression, you may only need medication management until you feel better. 

However, for chronic mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder or ADHD, you need long-term medication management. For these chronic mental health conditions, the Alevea Mental Health team makes sure you get the best treatment possible so you can live your best life.
