Medication Management Q&A

What is medication management?

Medication management refers to the ongoing use of prescription medications to treat medical conditions. Instead of being a short-term solution, like antibiotics for an infection, medication management is more effective for people with chronic conditions. 

So, by its very nature, medication management involves more follow-up and monitoring than you’d need with a one-time prescription. 

At Healthyminds Wellness LLC, Dr. Oyeneyin specializes in psychiatric medication management, which covers pharmacological treatment of a wide range of psychiatric, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental conditions. 

What conditions may require medication management?

Medication management is the cornerstone of treatment for many psychiatric, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental conditions including: 

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other behavioral disorders
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders

Many other conditions respond to medication management, and it’s helpful for people with more than one diagnosis too. 

How does the medication management process work?

Medication management starts with a comprehensive evaluation. Your evaluation covers your medical history, the symptoms you’re experiencing, and, where possible, input from one or more of your loved ones (they may observe symptoms you’re not aware of, which can be a helpful part of the evaluation process). 

Evaluations sometimes include diagnostic testing and symptom-rating on a scale, but every diagnostic evaluation is unique based on your individual symptoms and personal challenges. 

After your evaluation, Dr. Oyeneyin explains your diagnosis and takes time to review the treatment paths available. In most cases, medication management is one of the central aspects of your mental health care. 

Dr. Oyeneyin may prescribe a psychotropic medication that can equalize brain neurotransmitters, the brain chemicals that play a pivotal role in controlling your moods, memories, motor skills, and other vital aspects of day-to-day functioning. 

Dr. Oyeneyin closely works with you to monitor your medication usage and evaluates all your medications as a group to prevent drug interactions and protect your safety. 

Medication management is an ongoing process, one that adapts to your changing needs over time. At Healthyminds Wellness LLC, your mental and whole-person health is Dr. Oyeneyin’s top priority, and he’s always available to support you. 

Medication management and psychotherapy usually work together to give you a comprehensive treatment path for wellness. Both are available through convenient telepsychiatry.
