Your treatment is a collaborative effort. I will give you guidance and recommendations to adhere to between visits, but they will only be effective if you follow the treatment regimen and plan of action that we agree upon. Make sure that you take your medications as prescribed, keep your follow-up office visits, attend psychotherapy sessions with your therapist if that is part of your treatment plan, and keep your life as balanced as you can. It is very important to eat well, exercise regularly, avoid stressful situations as best as you can, let your loved ones help you whenever possible, and seek help if you feel like your symptoms are coming back.
