Mental Health Medication Management Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Mental Health Medication Management Worksheet?
Many mental illness symptoms require medications to help the individual reach a stable state or to help them manage distressing symptoms. However they must be taken regularly as prescribed which can sometimes be difficult to manage. To help clients adhere to their medication schedule it is important to help them set up a proper schedule which can act both as a reminder and a log to keep track of their medicine intake.
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet will help clients manage their medication intake as prescribed by their psychiatrist. This worksheet will help them list down the medicines they need to take, their dosages, when they have to take them and note down any significant side effects that are worth mentioning on the next visit.
How to use this worksheet?
Instruct the client to list down the medications they are prescribed along with their dosages then write down the times they need to take them. By the end of the day they can check off if they have completed their intake for the day. In the additional notes section they can note down any significant side effects or other information they wish to share with the psychiatrist in the next visit.
