Medications may be indicated when your mental symptoms are not responsive to psychotherapy alone.

When a mental illness markedly impacts your ability to work, maintain interpersonal relationships, or properly care for your basic needs, medication may offer much needed relief.

You will learn how the medication works, its dosage, and frequency, its expected benefits, possible side effects, drug interactions, and any withdrawal effects you may experience if you stop taking the medication abruptly.

By the end of the discussion you will have all the information you need to make a rational decision as to which medication is right for you.
