Mental health is affected by biological factors and many of these factors can be managed with medications. While talk therapy can give you the tools to cope with trauma, loss and other impacts on your mental health, it does not change the physical elements within the brain and body. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we understand that mental health treatment is complex, with many patients requiring medication to overcome their mental health disorders. We offer medication treatment for mental health issues that affect women at our clinic in the Reno, NV, area.
Mental health medication has improved immensely over the last few decades. More is understood about how different biological factors impact how the brain processes thoughts and emotions. There are physical conditions that can impact hormone levels, mood, behavior and more. Medication treatment to improve these conditions can play a significant role in overcoming many mental health issues.
Medication Management of Mental Health Disorders
Medication can be a valuable tool to control fluctuations in the biological factors that impact mood, thoughts and emotion. There are hundreds of different mental health medications that are used for managing women’s mental health issues. Some of the categories include:
- Anti-anxiety medications
- Anti-psychotic drugs
- Mood stabilizers
Finding the right balance of medication and other therapies can take time. Each person reacts to mental health medications differently – what works for one person may not be right for the next person with a similar disorder. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we evaluate each patient’s treatment plan to determine the right combination of therapies and medications for their specific needs. We also utilize lab testing for medication management and for accurate diagnosis. Each patient receives personalized care to obtain the best outcome for their mental and physical wellness.
