What is Medication Management?
Medication management at Texas Care involves outpatient evaluation and management of psychotropic medications used to treat adult mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, Bipolar disorder, ADHD and others.
Clients often contact us because they become frustrated after having tried multiple medications without any effective relief from their symptoms. They may be hesitant to try a new medication or feel that the only answer is to take additional medication to effectively treat their condition. Some adults are also hesitant to retry medications that have not worked for them in the past but could now be helpful.
Treatment recommendations may include a variety of options including, but not limited to, psychiatric medications. Our Telemedicine specialists understand the subtle differences between psychiatric medications within the different classes of psychiatric medications. Understanding these subtle differences between psychiatric medications allows our clinicians to optimize benefits from the medication while minimizing side effects.
Finding the right medication is only part of the solution. Effective management of illnesses related to mental health also depends on taking the right dosage at regular intervals. Skipping your medication due to cost or forgetfulness or trying to change your dosage on your own impact the effectiveness of your treatment and can place your physical and mental health at risk.
