Medication management involves the Northern Medical Group, Primary Care Division, team reviewing your medicines regularly to ensure you’re taking the most beneficial drugs at the correct dose.
New medications and drug information updates might mean you’d benefit from changing your current medications or their dosages. You might have drugs on your prescription that you don’t need any longer, or the ones you take could be causing side effects that you find hard to cope with.
You might be on medications for other health problems, like diabetes, heart disease, or chronic pain that might affect your psychiatric drugs. All these things and more can change over time. Therefore it’s essential to undergo routine medication management reviews to maximize your treatment’s effectiveness and reduce the risk of adverse effects.
Many patients need medication management to effectively treat their chronic disease or several health issues at once.
Everyone has a unique medication therapy plan. There are numerous variations to the same medication, so it can take a while to find the medicine and dose that works best for you. Medication management ensures that you receive the drugs that are going to have the most beneficial effects without causing additional problems.
Medication management offers several significant benefits:
All medications can potentially cause side effects or harm your health in addition to treating a specific condition. With regular medication reviews, you won’t be putting anything in your body that doesn’t have significant benefits.
Taking too much or too little of your medication negatively affects its potency. You also need to take it at the right time, in the way described, and avoid anything that could interact with it. If you’re taking several medications (and some people may take multiple pills every day), staying on top of this can be a challenge. Medication management allows you to do just that.
