Consistency is important in maintaining mental health, and while the pill form of psychiatric medications have been used to treat people for decades, some of these proven medicines for conditions such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and even alcohol or opiate dependence are available as once-a-month injection, with an experience similar to what might occur with a vaccination.
With the stability from a once-monthly injection, that’s one less pill you may have to take every day for your mental health, and you could spend more time without a mood episode, and sometimes with fewer side effects. When appropriate, you and your psychiatrist at Excel Psychiatric may choose for you to receive certain medications with a simple injection that provides consistent coverage for you. We’ll talk with you about medication management in Huntersville, NC. Schedule a consultation with Excel Psychiatric Associates, P.A. today.
