MENTAL HEALTH MEDICATION MANAGEMENT

Experienced Medication Management

Most patients begin mental health treatment by taking a prescribed medication. And for good reason: medication is easily accessible, can be prescribed by your primary care doctor, and is an effective treatment for many patients.

Ampelis Health is an excellent choice for patients looking for medication to treat a mental health condition. Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are well-versed in the latest antidepressants (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other SSRIs), anti-anxiety medications (such as Xanax, Ativan, Librium and other Benzodiazepines), and other psychiatric medications. We can issue medication refills as well as new prescriptions.

Antidepressant treatment for depression and anxiety

One of the main reasons patients choose Ampelis Health for psychiatric medication management is the psychiatric training and education of our providers. Primary care doctors are generalists, not specialists. antidepressant medicationWhile primary care doctors may be comfortable prescribing a handful of medication options, our providers have a much deeper level of psychiatry experience and are familiar with hundreds of psychiatric medications.

Our providers will work closely with you to identify the right medication, or combination of medications, that fit your needs. We listen carefully to each patient in order to properly diagnose the patient and identify the medication that offers the best potential for a positive result. Because each patient is unique, their treatment plans are unique as well.

Other Treatment Options for Depression and anxiety

For various reasons, patients often burn out on taking antidepressants. The side effects may be too severe, the medication may become less effective over time, or patients simply tire of taking pills. If that’s the case for you, don’t give up on treating your depression or anxiety altogether! We help patients treat depression without medication. We offer other treatment options for depression, such as:

Ketamine

Ketamine is an anesthetic with a noted antidepressant effect that makes it extremely effective for short-term depression treatment. While antidepressants can take up to six weeks to take effect, ketamine acts in a matter of hours. It is renowned for its fast-acting effect, with most patients reporting significant improvement within hours or days of treatment. Ketamine is not a long-term treatment; typically it is administered in six infusions over a two week period. Ketamine may be used in conjunction with TMS, antidepressants, or other treatments to help patients achieve a full remission from depression.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is a 100% drug-free way to treat depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and other mental health conditions. Rather than using medication to alter brain chemistry, TMS uses an external magnetic pulse to stimulate the brain itself. These impulses are calibrated to stimulate the brain into regenerative activity, creating new healthy pathways which allow for normal brain function. The effectiveness of TMS is backed by hundreds of research studies, it is FDA-approved as a depression treatment, and is covered for depression treatment by most major insurance plans. Patients looking for a drug-free option to treat depression are choosing TMS. Learn more about TMS at Ampelis Health.
