Psychiatric medicines have changed the lives of people with mental illnesses for the better—many people have gone on to live fulfilling lives with the help of these medicines.
As there is a wide range of safe and effective psychiatric medicines available today, it is important for you to understand what medicines your doctor has prescribed to you.
Besides knowing what they are and what symptoms they treat, it is good for you to be aware of some drug side effects, so that you will be able to talk to your doctor about them.
Adhering to medication dosages and schedules is important. If you wish to adjust the medication routine, please consult your doctor, as abruptly stopping some of these medicines may cause a Discontinuation Syndrome, with either a worsening of earlier symptoms or the appearance of other physical or psychological symptoms.
Other Important Considerations:

Your medications, dosages and treatment plans are based on your doctor’s professional opinion, which have been customised for your particular medical condition.
