Array Clinical Leader Discusses Best Practices for Managing Anxiety and Depression with Medication

There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to treating anxiety and depression. In fact, finding the right treatment often involves several dose adjustments or medication changes. During this time, it’s important to be closely monitored by a doctor and communicate any side effects or worsening of symptoms.

In a recent HuffPost article, Shane W. Rau, MD, PhD, DFAPA, Medical Director at Array Behavioral Care, discussed reasons why individuals may respond differently to different medications and what signs to look for that indicate a treatment change may be necessary.

Ideally, it’s best to be treated by a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions to establish the most effective treatment regimen. Psychiatrist-led prescribing and treatment planning results in faster and more efficient clinical outcomes. At Array, we use rigorous monitoring of clinical documentation and prescribing practices to assure organizational and recognized best practice quality standards are met by all clinicians. Read the article to learn more about treatment considerations for these common conditions: click here.
