Bala Cynwyd Psychiatric medication is a valuable tool used by mental health practitioners to assist in the therapeutic process. Many Psychiatric Disorders are partially rooted in a patient's biochemistry. For instance, a patient suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder may have a crippling fear of contracting a physical illness through bacterial contamination. They may understand that their obsessive fears are irrational, but will not be able to stop the obsessions or resulting compulsions they suffer from because of the biochemical nature of the disorder. Nurse Leadership Builders offers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat OCD, but the therapy may only be effective when combined with medication used to treat this disorder's biological component.
In addition to treating OCD, Bala Cynwyd psychiatric medications can also be effective in treating other Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, ADHD, and other disorders not specified here. The three major groups of Bala Cynwyd psychiatric medication include Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs), and Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs). Some of the brand name medications which fall under these medication categories are Celexa, Zoloft, Prozac, and Effexor. Although many Bala Cynwyd psychiatric medications have side effects, the duration and intensity will vary from patient to patient; some may experience few or no side effects at all. Typical side effects may include dry mouth, headaches, inorgasmia, and drowsiness.
If you have been diagnosed with a mental illness, it is possible that your family doctor or psychiatrist has prescribed medication as part of your treatment. If so, it is important that you take your medication as directed and maintain regular dialogue with your doctor about any concerns or side effects. Over time, you and your doctor will come to understand your unique therapy and medication needs.
