Reply To: Medication Adherence


Hi Katelyn,

I like how you discuss the pros and cons of stopping medication with client so they can weigh out the cost/benefit of stopping meds before they make a decision. Explaining what the purpose of the medication is, and how it works with the brain and brain chemistry I believe is helpful to medication adherence as well in language that is understood by the client. I think sometimes psychiatrists may not explain the medication as much as is helpful to clients, so assisting in this for the clients understanding would be beneficial.
