Medication

You may be prescribed medicines (tablets or injections) as part of the care plan to help with your recovery.

In some cases there are a number of different drugs available to treat the same illness.  The prescriber working with you will choose which treatment is most appropriate based on your specific needs and health, involving you as fully as possible in that choice.

All medicines have potential side effects which can vary from person to person.  In most people there are no or just mild effects, but for a few people the side effects they experience are more serious. As part of the discussions about your care the person prescribing your course of medication will explain the possible side effects associated with the drugs being recommended for you. 

The Trust has subscribed to the website ‘Choice and Medication’ which offers current information about medication used in the mental health settings explaining the key features, including side effects, for the most common medicines. These are available in an easy to read and understand format, which provides useful information on the medication you may have been prescribed.
