Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

Many types of mental health conditions are treatable with medication. When taking medication for a psychiatric disorder, it’s essential to have a qualified mental health provider monitoring any pharmacological treatment. 

Medications can provide the necessary stabilization and reduce the intensity of various emotional responses. In his experiences as a psychiatrist, Dr. Hsieh has seen many patients who are overmedicated, as well as those who are undertreated. 

Dr. Hsieh carefully adjusts the type and dosage of each medication to minimize side effects and maximize effect based on your individual needs. He seeks to use medication responsibly and minimize the possible side effects, as well as educate patients so they understand why they are taking certain medications.

Which mental health conditions benefit from medication?

At Cornerstone Psychiatry and Counseling, Dr. Hsieh may recommend medication as part of your personalized treatment plan to address conditions such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychotic disorders

Medication is not the answer to all psychiatric issues. Human beings are both physical and spiritual. However, it can provide some stabilization, reduce the intensity of certain emotions and alleviate many physical symptoms. If you have any of the above conditions, it's important to talk to Dr. Hsieh to see if medication management can help you.

Which medication is right for me?

Following your initial consultation, Dr. Hsieh may recommend medication to address your specific condition and lifestyle requirements. Some of the most common types of psychiatric medications include:

  • Antidepressants
  • Anti-anxiety medications
  • Antipsychotics
  • Mood stabilizers

Dr. Hsieh takes an integrative approach to mental health care. He uses medication management in combination with biblical counseling.
