Medications: Getting it right.

 

Medication is generally safe and effective, especially when coupled with therapy. Medication can be either long-term or short-term, depending on the severity of the symptoms and that patient’s goals.

 

However, it can take both time and patience to find the right medication for the patient. During the initial assessment, we will go over previous medications and therapies to find what works best for the patient. 

Part of the challenge of medication and why medication management is important is determining the specific dose and timing of medication for each individual. There are no consistent relationships between height, age and clinical response to a medication. Trial often is the best determining factor to finding the most beneficial dosage. Typically, patients will start with a lower dose, increasing dosage until clinical benefits are achieved. 

Once a medication is prescribed, a medical follow-up appointment will be made to see if your medications are effective, or if any adjustments need to be made.

 

We use the latest evidence to guide your medication choices, making sure to limit side effects while alleviating your symptoms so that life can be meaningful.
