If you're eligible for a prescription through Cerebral, your medication and dosage will be determined by the medical discretion of your prescriber. Our medical professionals are highly trained in diagnosing and treating various mental health disorders. However, we also understand that everyone reacts differently to medication and that sometimes adjustments will need to be made.
If you're unhappy with, no longer wish to take, or would like to consider a dosage change of your medication, please let a member of your Care Team know. Your Care Team will escalate your concerns to your Prescriber, or prompt you to schedule a follow-up visit. You may discuss medication concerns during monthly sessions with your Care Counselor, weekly sessions with your Therapists, or directly through the chat located in your Cerebral profile where your Coordinator can be reached.
If you aren’t feeling any relief from your symptoms right away, rest assured. Most mental health medications typically take 4 to 6 weeks before you start to feel a noticeable improvement. For most, you’ll usually start to feel the full benefits of a medication after 2-3 months. We know that you're wanting to feel better as soon as possible, but with your trust and patience, we can get there together.
