What You Need to Know About Managing Emotional & Mental Health Medications

May is Mental Health Awareness Month – Learn More About How We can Help!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and with all the stress, worry, and isolation people are experiencing as a result of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, making time for mental health is more important than ever this year. Many therapists and psychiatrists are offering virtual, telehealth therapy sessions for their clients during this difficult time, which has been a big help. In addition to individual, couples, or group therapy services, many counselors encourage their clients to seek medications that help with the management of big emotions and disordered thinking. However, most therapists are not prescribing physicians, so individuals need to partner with a medical professional to receive their regular prescriptions. If your doctor has recommended medication as part of your ongoing mental health treatment plan, the FastDoctNow team is happy to fill this need for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and panic disorders, and in some cases, for those who need to refill previous prescriptions for other conditions.

Depression Consultation

Depression is a common mood disorder that impacts millions of people in the U.S. For many, prescription medication helps to ease the symptoms of depression, so they can make more progress in working with their therapist to feel better and live a happier life. If your counselor has recommended medication as part of your ongoing mental healthcare plan or you’re dealing with depression and unable to see a therapist at this time, start a depression consultation with our medical professionals to find out if medication could be an affective part of your mental healthcare journey.

Anxiety Consultation

Another common mood disorder, anxiety, impacts numerous people each year, but many hesitate to receive help for this condition. Untreated anxiety can lead to numerous health concerns like elevated blood pressure, chronic headaches, and weakened immune system that can leave individuals more susceptible to numerous health concerns. If you want to learn more about how medication can be an important part of your mental healthcare journey, start an anxiety consultation with a medical professional at GetCareMD.

Panic Disorder Consultation

Panic disorders can make everyday life a nightmare. Going to work, interacting with loved ones, or just getting out of bed can be a real struggle. Like anxiety, panic disorders can also impact your whole body health by elevating blood pressure, making it difficult to get deep, restful sleep, and generally taxing your body and mind. If you’re dealing with panic disorder, the GetCareMD team can help. Start a panic disorder consultation to discuss medication options with one of our knowledgeable professionals.

Medication Refills

If you’ve struggled to get your mental health prescriptions refilled through your regular physician or don’t want the added expense of scheduling monthly appointments with a prescribing psychiatrist, we may be able to offer medication refills to keep you feeling healthy and well.
