Medication management is a service the Nurocoach team provides for patients who take one or more medicines for mental health conditions.
Competent medication management ensures that your medications deliver the most effective results without causing unpleasant or potentially harmful side effects.
Medication management provides several significant benefits. It ensures that your medications don’t cause harmful interactions or reduce each other’s effectiveness.
You can be sure that your dosages, timings, and medication method are correct, so you get the maximum benefits and don’t risk preventable problems like nausea, excessive sleepiness, and overdosing.
The Nurocoach team also reviews the types of medicines you take. Then if new ones become available that might be more suitable for you, you have an opportunity to try them.
During your medication management consultation, your Nurocoach provider looks at all the medication you take and your complete medical history.
For this process to work properly, you must prepare a list of all your medications, including each drug’s name, dosage, how long you’ve been using it, and why you take it. You should also list these if you use over-the-counter medicines, herbal or alternative remedies, or supplements in addition to prescription medications.
Tell your Nurocoach provider about any side effects you find hard to manage or other problems with your medicines. They ask about the benefits you get from each drug and where there’s room for improvement.
Once they have all the information, your provider can advise you on whether you need to make any changes and offer alternative drugs, as needed. You might find you can reduce or eliminate some medicines by undergoing other treatments, such as talk therapies or transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Regular medication management reviews offer the best results, but their frequency can vary according to each patient’s needs.
Some patients might only require a yearly medication management review, but a meeting every few months might be better if you have complex health problems. The Nurocoach team can advise you on how often to have a review.
