Length of treatment is individualized and determined collaboratively between you and your clinician. For medication treatment, the recommended length of treatment for most disorders is typically 1 year or more, depending upon your specific case.
The frequency of visits depends on the specific case. For patients who are being seen for medications alone monthly visits may be appropriate. Patients may be seen more often during initial treatment or medication adjustments. Patients on a stable medication regimen may be seen every 2-3 months. Continuous monitoring is important to ensure that you remain well and that medications are adjusted successfully.
