What Is Medication Management?

How medication management from your medical professionals in Hagerstown, MD, can help you

Medications are an important part of treatment for a wide variety of conditions. As a result, it’s easy to accumulate prescription medications over time. Unfortunately, medications can interact with each other, potentially causing harmful consequences. That’s where medication management comes in. The medical professionals at Compassionate Wellness Center in Hagerstown, MD, offer a wide variety of wellness services, including medication management to help you.

Medications are often a key treatment for mental health issues. Some of the other reasons you may be taking prescription medications include:

  • Treatment of acute illnesses like the flu or a cold
  • Treatment of an infection like strep throat
  • Treatment of chronic illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, or arthritis
  • Treatment of acute or chronic pain due to illness, injury, or disease

All these medications have the potential to interact with each other. Medications taken for mental illness add another layer of potential medication problems.

Without medication management, some of the possible harmful outcomes include:

  • One drug preventing another drug from working
  • One drug increasing the effect of another drug
  • One drug combining with another drug to cause a harmful outcome

Your medical professional can provide medication management to ensure you receive the best possible outcome from your medications. Medication management is an important part of treatment because:

  • The effectiveness of medications can vary between patients, so you may need more or less of the medication for it to be effective
  • Your medical professional will monitor your medications regularly, to ensure you are healthy and safe
  • Regular review of your medications helps to limit and avoid the side effects of medications
  • Your medical professional can provide tools and education to help you understand your medications, their potential interactions with foods and other drugs, dosage, and other factors about your medication regimen
