You’re looking for convenient and compassionate psychiatric medicine management for you or your loved ones.
Did you know that approximately 15.8 Americans take psychiatric medications to care for their mental health?
Medication can be a useful tool to help you feel relief from a wide variety of mental health concerns. Medication can help if you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum mood disorders, addiction, and more.
Maybe, you’ve tried talk therapy, but you feel like you need something more to cope with your distressing symptoms. this may be because they are really interfering with your ability to function in your day-to-day life. Or maybe, your therapist or psychologist has recommended you seek psychiatric medicine management care out of concern for your wellbeing.
Perhaps, you’re working to maintain your sobriety, but have found it really challenging after many years of using. If you’ve recovered from opiate usage, you may be seeking Suboxone to help you manage your cravings and keep the symptoms of withdrawal from wreaking havoc on your life. Or, if you’re in recovery from alcohol addiction, you may be looking for Naltrexone or Acamprosate (Campral) after detox.
Whatever brings you to this page, we acknowledge the strength it takes to reach out for help and medication and we’re here to support you with psychiatric medication management in Florida. We have offices located in both Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale.
Reasons You May Need
Psychiatric Medication Management
There are many times where medication can be helpful in giving you the boost you need to feel better and improve your mental and physical health.
However, we often recommend our clients consider medication when the symptoms they’re experiencing make it extremely challenging for them to go about their day-to-day life. We also recommend it when they’re experiencing symptoms that may lead them to engage in unsafe or life-threatening behaviors (suicide, drug use, alcohol misuse, reckless behaviors, etc).
Some other signs you would benefit from psychiatric medication management in Fort Lauderdale, FL or Coral Springs, FL include:
Feelings of hopelessness, or pessimism
Trouble regulating your emotions or “intense mood swings”
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
Decreased energy or fatigue
Moving or talking more slowly
Feeling restless or having trouble sitting still
Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
And difficulty sleeping, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause and/or that do not ease even with treatment
Challenges maintaining your sobriety to uncontrollable urges to use
Reckless or unsafe behavior
Bayview Therapy's Approach to Psychiatric Medication Management
As mental health professionals, our goal is to truly understand the things in your past and present that are contributing to the issues you’re facing both personally and professionally. We want to learn about what’s preventing you from feeling happy and at peace.
Our dual certified Adult Nurse Practitioner/Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Crystal Adkins, is proud to offer you and your loved ones high-quality psychiatric medicine management services.
What you can expect from your initial appointment with your Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Therapist:
Our first meeting is usually about an hour, sometimes more depending on the situation. I will ask you a lot of questions regarding your current life stressors, past psychiatric history, and medical history.
It is important to rule out a possible medical reason for your symptoms before confirming a psychiatric diagnosis. Sometimes, many of the same symptoms we see with depression are also seen with medical complications like hypothyroidism, some cancers, or neurological disorders.
Additionally, it’s important that I get to know you, what you like, what you do, and gather information about your lifestyle. So I may ask questions about where you were born, who raised you, what your childhood was like, etc. I will also ask you about your interests, hobbies, and job status. I may ask you to talk about difficult things like if you ever felt neglected or experienced abuse or suffer from trauma. All these questions will assist me in determining what type of treatment plan is best for you.
Please note that psychiatric treatment typically includes medication and psychotherapy.
