Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

Medication management is a service that can lower your risk for complications that arise from overdosing, underdosing, and missed doses of psychiatric medications.

The goal of medication management is to identify potential conflicts in the medications you take that may lead to unwanted side effects. You also receive medical guidance to ensure you understand how the medications work and how to take them properly.

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry offers medication management for adults and children. The providers also offer prescription refills for the medications you take to manage mental, emotional, or behavioral conditions.

When would I benefit from medication management?

You can benefit from the medication management services available at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry if you’re using one or more medications to treat physical conditions or mental or emotional disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The providers can also supervise your use of medications in the treatment of substance use disorder.

Through medication management, the medical specialists work closely with you on a plan to lower your risk for side effects and other complications. They can also adjust the dosage or change the medicines you take as needed.

What happens during a medication management appointment?

During your initial medication management appointment at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry, your provider reviews your medical history, current health, and the medications you take regularly.

To prepare for your appointment, be sure to write down all the prescription medications you take, as well as any over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements. Include the dose you take, the schedule you follow when taking the medicines, and the conditions you’re treating.

The more detailed the information you provide, the more accurate the providers can be in their assessment. They check for medication conflicts that can negatively affect your health. For instance, taking certain psychiatric medications together can worsen your symptoms or lead to physical health complications.

The providers discuss how to take medications properly and what to do if you miss a dose. They also provide routine follow-up appointments for medication management to ensure the medicines you take are working well at controlling your symptoms.
