Counseling is designed to help people work through the challenges in life that cause their mental health to decline. From depression therapy and PTSD counseling to life coaching and marriage counseling, mental health professionals dedicate their lives to helping people overcome the things holding them back from living happy, successful lives. When the ups and downs become too hard to tackle with counseling alone, medication can be added into the mix and give people the extra help they need to feel happier and healthier.
I found that every single successful person I’ve ever spoken to had a turning point and the turning point was where they made a clear, specific, unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50.” – Brian Tracy
It doesn’t matter where you are in life, what your mental health journey has looked like before now, or how old you are. Prioritizing your mental health is one of the best decisions you can make. The online psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Midlothian Counseling have the training, background, and expertise to diagnose and treat the issues you are having. If you feel like medication management might be the right option for you, consider reaching out to our office. We’d love to help you.
What Is Medication Management?
Why is it important to understand your medication’s dosage and effects? The type of medication, how much of a medication you take, and the effects of a medication can drastically change based on a number of factors. If you are looking to start a new medication for the mental illness or challenge you have, a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner is the best person to turn to. They can accurately determine how much of a prescription you should take, what time of the day you should take it, and if you should eat food or not when you take your medication. Not only can they do these things, but they can prescribe you medication that won’t negatively affect you. If you do choose to start a new medication, be sure to:
- Talk to your psychiatrist or nurse practitioner about any medications you are currently taking
- Discuss any allergies or problems you have had with past medications
- Fully understand how much medication you should take and when
- Always take your medication as directed by your provider
- Bring up any questions or concerns you have prior to or while you are taking a new medication
By having an open relationship with your psychiatrist, you can receive the highest level of care. Our providers want to be your partner in your mental health journey and encourage you to ask any questions you have. We want to make this the easiest and most stress-free process possible.
