Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners in Lynchburg, VA—Medication Management

Talk therapies are very effective, and many people benefit from their techniques. Many people also benefit from combining medication with these treatments. Just as many people who have high blood pressure may be treated with diet, exercise, and at times, medication, so many mental health disorders respond to cognitive enhancers, mood stabilizers, or antidepressants in addition to other therapies. Whenever psychiatric medications are involved, medication management is important for finding the right medication at the right dose.

When someone needs medication for a mental health problem, psychiatric nurse practitioners can help their clients manage their medications. They have the certifications and credentials to provide talk therapy and prescribe any psychiatric medications that may enhance that therapy.

Thriveworks Lynchburg is now offering medication management for those clients who would benefit from psychiatric medications with their therapy.

Who May Need Medication Management?

Many people believe that only the most serious mental health disorders benefit from the medical interventions that a psychiatric nurse practitioner can provide. Certainly, people who struggle with severe conditions such as schizophrenia benefit from medication, but so do many others.

Psychiatric medication may be useful in treating anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, and more.

Thriveworks Lynchburg medication management specialists team up with clients, their therapists, and/or counselors to ensure that each individual receives the medication they need at the dose they need it.

ion while visiting Lynchburg and I was agonizing on how to go forward. Crisis never happens at a convenient time but we were quickly able to get a family counseling meeting with a very respectful and skilled therapist, Regina. In one visit alone, Regina was able to help us see clearly the next steps needed for healthy family dynamics, and although I wish I could bring her back home with me, perhaps our other family members will take advantage of this great blessing available. Thanking God for your help.
