Many of the treatment plans developed at the McDowell Healing Arts Center could include a collaboration between a Psychiatrist, our very own Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, or your Primary Care Physician, and medication management may be part of the plan. When a medication is prescribed to a patient, the prescribing physician and in most cases the pharmacy where the medication is filled, attempts to give you a full account of the potential benefits and some of the common side effects associated with these medications. We have, below, included a list of some of the medications commonly used in the area of mental & behavioral health. Feel free to copy and paste any of these links into another web browser. Many of the links take you to the manufacturer's web site. Here you might find valuable coupons that you can use at your pharmacy as well.

We are often asked about the use of generic medications. In recent years, generic medications have become quite popular primarily because they are less costly. Typically, generic medications result from the maturation of brand name medications. For example, every year, the Food and Drug Administration approves several new medications for use. These are manufactured by a company and are often highly promoted. The manufacturer has the exclusive right to market and promote these medications. Many advertisements that you see on TV are for brand name medications. These medications have been researched and developed by the pharmaceutical companies. This is a very complex commercial and scientific process.
