Pharmacotherapy is an integral part of psychiatric treatment. Along with counselling and psychotherapy, our Pharmacotherapy in Mumbai completes the treatment in a comprehensive manner. Patients with psychiatric illness have both structural and neurochemical changes in the brain. These scientifically proven chemical changes can be corrected with the help of medicines through our Pharmacotherapy in Mumbai.
Some of the class of psychotropic drugs commonly used are SSRI, SNRI, TCAs, Antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, benzodiazepines, etc. These medicines act on the body just like any other medicine. They are not really cardiotoxic or cause damage to the liver and kidney as thought. This is a rare phenomenon and that too with few of the medicines.

Due to lack of awareness and misconception, patients and relatives often stop treatment against medical advise. There are side effects like dryness of mouth, constipation, weight gain and occasional sleepiness which occur around in 1/10th of the patients.
Long term treatment is usually beneficial for patients, hence regular follow up with Psychiatrist is required. Antidepressants, anxiolytics or any other psychiatric medicines act on the body similar to any other medication like anti hypertensives or antidiabetics. There are demonstrable positive changes in the brain as seen in MRI and PET scan with medicines.
