For many mental health issues, research suggests that a combination of therapy and psychopharmacology provides the most effective treatment. At Carolina Pediatric Therapy, our psychiatric nurse practitioner can help you and your family decide if medication might play a useful role in your child’s treatment, make recommendations, discuss with you the associated risks or benefits, prescribe directly to your pharmacy, and monitor for safety. Medication can offer assistance with several symptoms, including insomnia, anxiety, depression, mania, psychosis, and problems with attention and concentration. Medication use may be brief or may require weeks or months of treatment in order to achieve a long-lasting, sustained remission. No matter the course, our psychiatric nurse practitioner will be available to support your child and family along the way!
