Beyond Psychiatry utilizes an integrative approach to prescribing which incorporates co-existing medical conditions, your current medication regimen, past treatment history, and lifestyle factors.
During your first visit, your Provider will discuss various medication options and collaborate with you in making the choice. During this visit, the provider is unable to conduct certain tests or assess vital signs in-person, which may in some cases prevent the provider(s) from providing a diagnosis or treatment or from identifying the need for emergency medical care or treatment.
For medication management, ongoing requests for information is necessary, initially as well as ongoing to assess symptoms, functioning and possible side effects during treatment to remain under the care of the provider.
It is important to follow the treatment plan specified by your provider, which may include taking medication as prescribed and/or completing therapy sessions and associated follow-through.
