Medication often forms part of a psychiatric process, however, it may take a few attempts to find the correct combination of medication and the correct dosage.

Ensuring all medication tried is documented can help a practitioner find the most effective treatment optimally.

There is also the benefit of having documentation of medication history for chronic care.
