Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist #5
My doctor recently started me on Lithium and told me there are lots of drug interactions with this medication. My pharmacist is very good at telling me about interactions with prescription medications but how do I know which non-prescription or over-the-counter medications to avoid?

Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist #4
I have been taking my antidepressant medication for about 5 months now. I feel great. All of my symptoms seem to be gone. Is it OK for me to stop taking my medication?

Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist #2
What are the long-term effects of taking medication for mental illness? Will the medicine damage my brain, liver, kidney or other organs?

Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist #3
Will I become addicted to the medication? I donít want to become addicted?

Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist #1
I forgot to get new prescriptions the last time I went to my doctor and I am out of refills on my old prescriptions. Now it's Saturday and I can't reach my doctor's office to call in new prescriptions for me? What should I do?
