“It is common that patients are over/under medicated and it is important for ongoing monitoring of medications because the ideal dose can change over time.”

With medication management, our providers will monitor the effectiveness of the prescribed medications, as well as the side effects (if any) and weigh the patients’ options. If the medication is not working effectively, adjustments will be made. At Soho Psychiatry, we will sometimes utilize  GeneSight test to find medications that will best work for the patient. This is a simple cheek-swab test to match specific medications that will work best based on the individual’s genetics. We like to think outside the box and based treatment on the patient’s response and symptoms not the diagnosis. Medication management is a partnership of the provider and the patient both must be comfortable and work together to be successful,

During the medication management appointment your provider will ask you questions about side effects of the medication as well as overall functioning while taking the medication. The purpose is to make sure the medication is benefitting the patient, while limiting the side effects.Call or email and speak to our office staff to learn more or schedule an appointment.

There are many reasons people do not seek treatment for their symptoms, ranging from their denial of a problem to guilt and shame to not knowing how/when to seek help. Many times a person will put themselves in treatment when they accept they have an issue and are ready to get help, but often times it happens through family and friends intervening. If you are concerned for yourself or someone you know, it is ok to reach out for help.
