Therapy and Medications

It is commonly recommended that talk therapy be incorporated into one's treatment whenever psychiatric medications are being used, as the "one-two punch" of talk therapy combined with medications tends to work well together. An antidepressant may lift a person's mood, for example, allowing them to participate more fully in psychotherapy and therefore bring about more lasting change.
