Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

Medication management is medical care focusing on the safe and effective use of prescription and nonprescription medications. This type of care is essential for anyone taking one or more prescription drugs.

How does the medication management process work?

Medication management includes a few types of medical care. 


Many patients need prescription medication for depression, anxiety disorders, hypertension, or other medical problems. One of the main aspects of medication management is getting a prescription that meets your needs. 

The team explains your diagnosis and how the drug you’re taking will help you manage or overcome your condition before you start taking it. You also have the chance to ask questions about the drug and its possible effects. 

Medication review

The “brown bag” method, also called a medication review, is another vital aspect of medication management. Essentially, this means that patients are encouraged to bring all their medications, supplements, and over-the-counter drugs into the Elshaddai Clinic office in a brown bag (or any container).

The team reviews each of these medications with you, discusses how they affect you, checks for drug interactions, and reviews possible side effects with you. The brown bag method can identify potential problems you weren’t aware of and helps keep you safe.

Medication monitoring

Medication monitoring is periodic visits to get prescription refills, get new prescriptions, change your current prescriptions, or adjust your dose of medication. Monitoring helps assess treatment evolution and determine how your treatment is benefiting your physical and mental health. 

Medication monitoring is beneficial in identifying which drugs work best for you. So, keep track of your side effects or symptoms if you notice any, and share those with the team during medication monitoring. They can make adjustments to avoid those issues in the future.

How frequently do I need medication management?

The Elshaddai Clinic team schedules an initial appointment, which takes about an hour. After that, your 20-minute medication management appointments usually happen anywhere from once a month to a few times a year, based on your needs. 

The team believes in getting to know every patient as an individual. This allows them to fully personalize your medication management so you get the best results from medication.
