Medications are crucial in helping millions of people live with chronic health issues like depression and anxiety. Keep reading to learn about medication management and how it benefits you and your health.

Living with a mental health disorder makes it hard to function and enjoy life without the proper treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and medications help to ease symptoms and promote a better quality of life.

Medication management is a tool doctors use to evaluate how medications are working, change your dose for optimal effect, and manage multiple medications in patients.

At Source 23 Psychiatry, Kimberly Gilbert, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, and her team provide treatment for various mental health issues. Ms. Gilbert is an advanced practice nurse practitioner who offers medication management to her patients in the Columbus, Ohio, community.

Understanding medication management

Many healthcare professionals use medication management therapy to prescribe and monitor patients on medications. It encompasses several steps to ensure the safety and efficiency of treatment, including:

  • Medication therapy review
  • Medication records
  • Medication action plan
  • Intervention or referral program
  • Documentation of results
  • Follow-up and long-term management

We individualize the program to every patient's individual needs. The treatment is an integral and essential part of treatment for mental health problems and chronic health conditions.

Five significant benefits of medication management

Medication management offers various benefits to your health. One of the major benefits is the ability to reduce symptoms of a health problem and improve your quality of life. Other benefits of this treatment include the following:

1. Reduces risks of side effects

Most medications risk mild, moderate, and severe side effects, even when taken correctly. Medication management allows us to closely monitor every patient's medication progress to minimize the risk of side effects.

2. Ensures optimal outcomes

The best way to ensure you get the best treatment is through routine check-ins and evaluations of how the medications work. The quicker we find the proper medication routine, the better your outcome will be when it comes to treating mental health disorders.

3. Reduced need for hospital visits

Keeping a close eye on your medications allows us to reduce complications and side effects, which helps you stay out of the hospital and doctor's office. We help to keep you safe and control your condition to prevent the need for healthcare visits.

4. Reduced health costs

Medical care is expensive, especially for those who don't have insurance. Medication management therapy helps reduce healthcare costs by helping us find the proper medication quickly and reducing the need for multiple medications and those that aren't necessary for your needs.

5. Personalized care

Everyone benefits differently from medication management. Whether you're on one medication or 10, we personalize your care to optimize your treatment, reduce complications and side effects, and cut costs associated with treatment.

PSALM 23: 1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
