"After 20 years of working in the mental health field, I have learned that although psychotherapy can be a life changing experience, it is not always enough to adequately manage mental health symptoms. When patients are still experiencing debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, or difficulty with concentration, then psychotropic medications may be beneficial. Medications may bring patients relief from overwhelming worry or panic symptoms, low mood and motivation, and mood swings or irritability. "
