What if I don’t want to take psychiatric medication?
No one can force you to take psychiatric medication if you do not want to unless you are in the hospital and often not even then.
At GABA Telepsychiatry, the psychiatrist will work with you to address all the possible causes of psychiatric symptoms, including developmental, genetic, emotional, trauma, environmental, endocrine (due to hormones), medical including sleep apnea, diabetes, stroke, obesity, poor physical fitness, and medical causes of psychiatric symptoms.
However, there are some individuals who still demonstrate significant impairment, who continue to suffer and are still symptomatic despite psychotherapy and efforts towards natural remedies. In these cases, the psychiatrist will aim to work with you to find the correct medication and minimize side effects.
