Do you prescribe stimulants for ADHD treatment?

Yes, at Lumina Psychiatry, we prescribe stimulants as they are a first-line treatment for ADHD. Stimulants have been proven effective in enhancing concentration and focus, helping to manage the symptoms of ADHD. Our treatment plans are personalized, and we closely monitor all medication management to ensure the best outcomes for our patients.

Do you prescribe benzodiazepines?

Yes, we do prescribe benzodiazepines at Lumina Psychiatry. These medications are typically prescribed on an as-needed basis for anxiety and other conditions, due to their potential for dependence. However, we understand that some patients may have been using benzodiazepines chronically and have found them effective. In such cases, we are open to continuing their current prescription if it is working well for them, always with a focus on safety and effectiveness.

How do you ensure the safe use of stimulants and benzodiazepines?

Safety is our top priority when prescribing any medication, including stimulants and benzodiazepines. At Lumina Psychiatry, we conduct thorough evaluations and ongoing monitoring to minimize risks and ensure the most beneficial treatment outcomes. This includes assessing the patient’s health history, current health status, and the potential for drug interactions. Our aim is to support our patients’ health and well-being, adjusting treatment plans as needed to achieve the best results.
