Psychiatric medications, also known as psychotherapeutics or psychotropics, are used to treat many mental disorders, such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These medications have changed the lives of many people for the better.
The success of these medications, however, depends on the correct selection, dose and treatment plan. At Psychiatric Associates, we manage each patient's medications according to his or her unique needs. We do this by meeting with patients regularly to review their medication, determine if it's effective in managing their symptoms and discussing any side effects. If needed, we may make adjustments to your medications.
