Together, with Dr. Frick, you will create a medication plan that optimizes benefit while minimizing potential adverse medication effects. As with any medication, those medications used for treatment of mental health symptoms carry both the possibility of great benefit and the risk of adverse effects. While your provider will review these risks and benefits with you, it is impossible to predict how any individual will react to a particular medication and it is always the patient’s decision which, if any, medications they are interested in utilizing.
