Psychopharmacology meaning

At Good Health Psych in New York, psychopharmacology is the science of using medication to treat various mental health disorders. This practice involves the careful prescription of drugs designed to correct imbalances in brain chemistry, benefiting those suffering from psychiatric conditions.

Our services at Good Health Psych include not only the prescription of these medications but also meticulous monitoring of their dosages and effectiveness. As a patient receiving psychopharmacology treatment with us, you will benefit from expert guidance in medication management.

We treat a range of disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), ensuring tailored therapeutic approaches for each individual’s needs.

What Disorders Can Psychopharmacology Help

MDD (Major Depression)

MDD (Major Depression)

Depression is a mood disorder characterized by persistent sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities. Its severe symptoms can disrupt daily routines and make even simple tasks challenging.

PTSD

PTSD

PTSD arises from witnessing or experiencing trauma, leading to severe anxiety, nightmares, or uncontrollable flashbacks triggered by various stimuli.

Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder

Individuals with bipolar disorder undergo extreme mood swings, from depressive lows, losing interest and motivation, to manic highs, where they feel overly energetic and detached from reality, often needing little sleep.

Expertise in Psychopharmacology and Psychiatry

While both psychiatrists and psychopharmacologists deal with mental disorders, they do so in slightly different ways. Psychiatrists often use a blend of treatments including counseling, psychotherapy, and medication. In contrast, psychopharmacologists specialize primarily in medication management. Our team at Good Health Psychiatry comprises professionals skilled in both areas, ensuring a holistic approach to each patient’s treatment plan.

I have a great down to earth provider. All of my appointments are virtual so I don’t have to schedule around them. The help center is actually extremely helpful and gets messages to your doctor with a response usually the same day. I highly recommend these services. Also they take insurance unlike most virtual doctors that cost hundreds just for a medication refill appointment.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!
