Medication Management/Psychopharmacology

Medication management is not one size fits all, and in collaboration with the board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, we will discuss the treatment options and your needs. Behavioral Health Resiliency PLLC uses a shared decision-making model with the nursing process.

Any psychiatric disorder will require a two-pronged approach for successful treatment: medication combined with psychotherapy or counseling. A two-pronged approach is helpful because of the bio-psychosocial model and the fact that humans are multidimensional.

A PMHNP has the training to provide both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. At Behavioral Health Resiliency PLLC psychopharmacology is informed by current science, research, and evidence-based practice. We offer Pharmacogenetic testing with Genesight and Genomind.

Psychopharmacology is the use of medications to treat psychiatric diagnoses.

Combining medications and psychotherapy is the best foundation for recovery.

What about Science?

There are more than 40 neurotransmitters in the human nervous system, and in the brain, there are small molecules like insulin and oxytocin that work more subtly. They are adjusting how cells communicate. Scientists have identified more than 60 distinct neurotransmitters in the human brain. There are 7 primary neurotransmitters.

Medications help regulate the neurotransmission of the brain’s chemicals to assist in managing symptoms. Medications can enhance, block, or partially block signaling.

Through pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, symptoms are managed. Pharmacokinetics is how the medications move through the body, and Pharmacodynamics is the biological response to the medication, which is monitored closely to achieve the desired effects.

Behavioral Health Resiliency PLLC does not prescribe narcotic medications
