Mental Health Medications

Medications affect brain chemicals that regulate emotions and thoughts. They often work well with therapy. Medication can alleviate symptoms like depression or low energy, making therapy more effective.

Finding the right medication may take time. Medication effects vary among individuals. Physicians use records and consider family history and side effects when prescribing.

Treatment may involve daily pills, liquid forms, injections, patches, or dissolvable tablets. Injections at the doctor’s office can help with adherence.

Providers start with a low dose and increase it gradually. Consult your doctor if you experience side effects. Tapering off medication is essential to avoid discomfort.

Medication may be short-term or long-term, even lifelong. Most people find medication empowers them without altering their personality.
