Medication is frequently used alone or in conjunction with other services like psychotherapy to stabilize and/or eliminate the symptoms that accompany psychiatric disorders. Sunny Hills Behavioral Health’s psychiatrists and nurse practitioners oversee medical treatment of psychiatric disorders.
The psychiatrist or nurse practitioner on our treatment team can prescribe, discontinue or adjust medications. It is important to collaborate with your provider by discussing symptom changes, side effects or by asking questions that will lead to safe and effective utilization of medication.
Types of Psychiatric Medications
If you have come to the decision with your provider to use any of these or other psychiatric medications, be sure that you:
Call your doctor right away if you have any problems with your medicine or if you are worried that it might be doing more harm than good. Your doctor may be able to adjust the dose or change your prescription to a different one that may work better for you.
