Although I sometimes refer to the use of medications to address psychological problems as a “Refusal of the Call,” they can be very helpful for some people. Others try it and find it doesn’t work for them. Still others don’t want to consider it. In my opinion, use of medication is your choice and, as with any other decision, I would be happy to help you in the process of making that choice.

Please note that I am not a physician or a psychiatrist and am not able to prescribe medications. However, I can provide information and ideas for you to discuss with your doctor. While we’re on the topic, it’s important to remember that your doctor works for you!

If you wish, I would be happy to talk to your doctor, with your permission, about possible courses of treatment and help you and your doctor monitor your treatment.

Contact me to discuss this further.
