Our medication management depends on your individual needs and desires. Many times psychotherapy alone may accomplish the therapeutic goals. In many cases also adding psycho-tropics may accomplish a higher level of recovery. Fortunately we now have a large number of anti-anxiety medications, anti-depressant medications, mood stabilizer medications and hypnotic medications available to treat psychiatric conditions. Many of these medications are very effective and non-habit forming if used as prescribed. Furthermore, there is a great deal of individual variation in term of response and side effects.
