Medication management is a speciality of Dr. Danish and the other medical practitioners at Philadelphia Integrative Psychiatry. Dr. Danish is board certified in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. The practitioners he has hired, helped train, and continues to supervise are all trained and certified across those same age ranges. If medications are indicated, we will discuss the indications and potential side effects. Followup appointments are scheduled every 4-8 weeks, but as patients stabilize, we can space them out to every 8-12 weeks. In many cases as conditions improve, we look to lower doses and eventually come off of the medications.
Psychiatric evaluations done by Dr. Danish and the other medical practitioners at Philadelphia Integrative Psychiatry evaluate patients on their current symptoms to determine if medications are recommended. Psychiatric evaluations and possible medication management recommendations depend on a myriad of factors unique to each patient. All practitioners at our practice err on the side of being conservative when it comes to prescribing psychotropic medications.
