Medications used to manage mental health disorders are often misunderstood or subject to scrutiny, but for many people, they can be a vital part of treatment. Though they may not work for everyone, prescription medications can make living with symptoms that might otherwise interfere with a person’s daily life or safety feel much more possible. These articles talk about the history of psychiatric medication, the potential pros and cons of taking certain medications, and how to talk to your doctor about taking medication for your mental health.
