Medication management is the prescribing, administering, and reviewing of medications and side effects. Management includes monitoring prescriptions and avoiding potential unsafe drug issues.  Your psychiatrist will confirm your medication is being taken correctly and at the appropriate dosage. Appointments are used to track progress in treatment while on the medication.  Appropriate vital signs and laboratory measures will be monitored as appropriate.  We will discuss progress in therapy and reinforce therapeutic principals.  Every appointment continues to present a unique opportunity to optimize treatment.  Appointments are approximately 20 minutes long.
