Medication Management Psychiatrist
Medication management in Tucson is often a part of Dr. DiPierdomenico’s process. There are effective medication options to treat most major disorders. These include major depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorders, such as PTSD, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, general anxiety disorder, and psychotic disorders.
Placebo-controlled trials have shown that medications for these disorders reduce or eliminate symptoms. Additionally, psychotherapy can be used without medications for patients with mild to moderate disorders. However, medication is an important mainstay of treatment for patients with more severe and/or long-standing mental illness symptoms.
