Medication Management Q&A

How is a medication management regimen started?


When you begin sessions at VIP Integrative Healthcare, the team will carefully assess your current medication regimen for effectiveness if you are already on a medication regimen. 


If appropriate, the medication regimen can be adjusted or changed. When a new medication is started, or there is a significant change in medication dosages, the team will closely monitor you until you feel better.


They will check in with you regularly, tracking side effects and changes. Once you have been stabilized on the new medication regimen, your frequency of visits can be decreased in many cases.


VIP Integrative Healthcare will always make sure that patients have a sufficient supply of medication to last until their next appointment. If patients are new to taking medication, the team will recommend a dosage that will help them ease into taking medication with the fewest side effects possible.
