Arcara Personalized Psychiatry provides Medicare-designed medication management services that ensure you get the most benefits out of your medication plan. We aim to help you get value from all the medications you take. With professional help, you can ensure your medicine is working for you, find lower-cost alternatives, and ask questions regarding your medications.
Like many Arcara members, you take a variety of medications prescribed by different doctors. But with medication management guidance, you’re not winging it but know exactly how your drugs affect you.
In medication management therapy (MMT), pharmacists and healthcare providers work together to ensure their patients use the medication correctly and understand the medication. It is a method of treating patients to ensure that they receive the best therapeutic results from prescription drugs.
Medicine management therapy involves several activities, including:
Examining and assessing the patient’s medication, including potential interactions and side effects.
We develop short- and long-term treatment strategies
We monitor the efficacy and safety of all prescription dosage plans
Educating patients to ensure they follow guidelines and instructions

Our medical team closely monitors any adverse reactions or drug interactions that may threaten their recovery and ensure the correct dosage and timing of the medication.
We assess your medication needs and review prescribed medications, highlighting any potential side effects. Sometimes, patients may no longer be on an effective medication or require a prescription for a drug that isn’t prescribed yet.
