In Case of Any Mental Health Crisis

Medication Management: Misconceptions, Benefits, and Beyond

Introduction to Medication Management

Breaking the stigmas around mental health and creating confidence amongst communities to build a caring society. Medication management is a process of interacting with patients and caregivers. It also consists of tracking, managing, and encouraging patient response. It is of utmost importance for doctors and patients facing mental health conditions. It consists of a ‘brown bag method’ the purpose of this method is to encourage patients to bring their medications during clinic visits. Having a detailed and proper medication list is the base for medication management and medication reconciliation. These techniques benefit in analyzing a patient’s behavior leading to situations of drug overdose, underdose, adverse drug effects, forgetting medications, or other negative factors.

Misconceptions on Medication Usage in Mental Health

There are several conditions where a patient is prescribed mental health medications. But seeing such medications often patients become hesitant and skeptical. Usually, there is a misconception among people that medications are to be taken only in extreme situations. People even have a misbelief that these medications are habit-forming and they can change a person’s behavior. There are only some medicines for mental issues that are addictive and proper medication management can take care of this situation as well. 

Many times, your situation can be handled by being in good communication with your doctor and taking proper therapies and medications. Some of the conditions are better handled using therapy and you don’t need to go for medications. Such conditions can be self-esteem-related or something similar. In other conditions like anxiety or depression, the patient may have to take medications. Overall medicines play a crucial role in quicker recovery and one must forget the stigmas to gain the best mental state. We need medication management because of its tremendous benefits on the well-being of an individual.
