What are the benefits of medication management?

Medications can improve your thoughts, emotions, mood, and behaviors. They also help you break addictions to drugs, alcohol, or nicotine. Mental health medicines reduce depression, anxiety, thoughts of suicide, inattention, or hyperactivity. Ryan tailors each medication prescription to your personalized needs.

Is medication management right for me?

Ryan discusses your symptoms, lifestyle, current medications, medical history, and more to learn more about you. He completes a psychiatric evaluation by asking about your behavior patterns, mood, emotions, and thoughts.

What should I expect during medication management?

If Ryan writes a prescription as a part of a medical management treatment plan, take the medicines exactly as directed. You might also undergo psychotherapy (talk therapy) and holistic treatments, such as diet or exercise changes, dietary supplements, finding a strong social support network, and stress-reducing strategies. 

He can renew your medication prescription or make changes to it as needed and is always available to address concerns or questions.
