Max has never felt this way before. He’s heard and read about it, but he never understood it until now. Lately, his mind is out of control with racing thoughts. Throughout the day, thoughts like this take over:
- The roads are so slick because of the rain. This is a horrible time to be driving, I’m going to crash.
- My manager is so unhappy with me. I’m working hard but I can’t meet this deadline and I’m probably going to get fired.
- The kids probably hate me. I’m never home anymore and they’re never excited to see me when I get home.
He doesn’t understand why he has these thoughts or how to control them. He feels helpless and hopeless.

How Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?
Have you ever experienced symptoms of a mental health condition? Have you ever felt unwell, but you weren’t sure why or how to feel better? A psychiatrist can step in and offer the help you need. Please consider talking to a psychiatrist if you are experiencing…
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Sleep disturbances
- Substance abuse problems
- Addictive habits/behaviors
- Anxiety or depressive feelings
- Thoughts of self-harm
These are just a few challenges that might strike alarm. If you are feeling mentally or emotionally unwell, psychiatrists can offer their guidance and assistance.
Psychiatrists are qualified to help their clients in ways that other providers cannot. These are medical doctors who have many years of education, training, and experience under their belt. This trifecta enables them to offer quality care that you can count on.
In addition to diagnosing mental illnesses, they can recommend treatment and then also lead your treatment, be it therapy or medication. In many cases, therapy and medication prove to work well in tandem.
What Exactly Is Medication Management?
Medication management is probably exactly what you think it is. This refers to the process of understanding your mental disorder and the medication that you are prescribed for it. Psychiatrists can offer medication management to their clients, which involves explaining the exact dosage of one’s medication and how to take it (for example, with or without food). They will make these instructions abundantly clear.
Every medication out there comes with potential negative side effects. For example, when it comes to psychiatric medication like antidepressants and mood stabilizers, the following are common:
- Weight gain
- Low libido
Sometimes the negative side effects can prove too harmful and outweigh the positive effects. In these instances, your psychiatrist can prescribe you with a new medication that is better suited for your needs. Keep in mind that it is normal to try out a few different medications before finding the right fit. Your psychiatrist is committed to helping you find this right fit.
