Medication Management Q&A

What is medication management?

Medication management is a health care service that helps lower the risk for complications that certain medications can cause. While it can describe a broad range of services, the overall goal is to ensure patients get the best benefits from their medications. 

At JM Psychiatry Inc, the medication management service ensures the medications and dosage you’re taking effectively manage your mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

Dr. Murdock also provides medication counseling services to help you take your medications correctly to receive the full benefit of your treatment. This is especially important if you’re taking medications to manage both physical medical issues and mental health disorders.

When should I consider medication management services?

You should schedule a medication management consultation at JM Psychiatry Inc if you have to take medications for a mental health disorder.

You may also benefit from medication management if you take multiple medications to treat mental or physical health conditions. This is because some medications can cause conflicts and complications when you take them simultaneously.

Medication management aims to prevent health complications that can develop if you skip doses, misuse or abuse medications, or if you’re not taking the right medications for your condition.

What happens during a medication management appointment?

During your initial medication management appointment, Dr. Murdock reviews your medical history. You should also bring along a list of all medications and supplements you regularly take, including prescription and over-the-counter medications and vitamins.

Dr. Murdock evaluates your medication list to identify potential conflicts. He also checks your dosages to ensure your medications are working well for your condition. 

You can meet with Dr. Murdock for regular medication management checkups in the office or through the online telemedicine platform. He can adjust your medications for mental health issues if you’re experiencing symptoms or bothersome side effects.

If there are conflicts with certain medications, Dr. Murdock can discuss your options for moving forward. He can also coordinate care with your family physician and other medical providers to ensure any underlying health conditions are well managed in the long term.
