Studies have shown that the most effective treatment for some psychiatric conditions is a combination of therapy and medication.
Medication is not for everyone. However, if you find that after some time in therapy you’re still struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, mood swings or insomnia, you might consider being evaluated for medication. Antidepressant, anti-anxiety and mood-stabilizing medications are most commonly prescribed. If you’re a candidate for medication, you’ll meet regularly with the prescriber to determine if adjustments to your treatment plan need to be made.
