“Medication Management”  Psychopharmacology is the study of the use of medications in treating mental disorders or the scientific study of the effects drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior.    This includes an understanding of:

  • Protein binding (how available the medication is to the body)
  • Half-life (how long he medication stays in the body)
  • Polymorphic genes (genes which vary widely from person to person)
  • Drug-to-drug interactions (how medications affect one another)
