Medication Management

Medication Management

Prescription medications can be an essential and effective treatment component when managing the symptoms of various mental health conditions. During the initial psychiatric evaluation with the provider, every patient’s mental health needs are assessed and there is a thorough review of any past or current medications including the use of over-the-counter medications, herbal or vitamin supplements, and prescription medications. The provider will discuss psychiatric medication options based on FDA guidelines, evidence-based research, and presenting symptoms.

Psychiatric medications have the potential to increase certain risks and/or cause side effects similarly to the use of any medication. Therefore, at each follow-up medication management appointment, the provider will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to ensure that the patient is experiencing symptom improvement while eliminating or reducing potential side effects. Medication management also includes monitoring and reconciliation of all medications, in addition to checking for any potential medication interactions and medication safety.

Amethyst Holistic Health uses a holistic approach to improve patients’ overall quality of life by working together with patients to achieve their individual mental health goals. Therefore, medication may not be the best treatment option for all patients and all mental health symptoms do not require the use of medication.
