Medications are not always the answer to mental health issues, but when they are needed, it is critical they be carefully prescribed. Many factors determine what medications are recommended – what dose and what combinations – if needed. This is where the art of medicine becomes important. Many decisions regarding psychiatric medication are not based on solid science, because the science is simply not there. Finding the right medications depends on good communication with you, regular follow up visits, and solid clinical experience. Situations may require regular counseling (talk therapy). In these cases, we have a professional referral network to help you.
