What medications do we prescribe?

If appropriate, your provider may prescribe you one or more medications based on your specific needs. Listed here are many, but not all, of the medications our psychiatric providers commonly prescribe. Brightside offers effective treatment with nonaddictive medications like SSRIs and SNRIs. We do not prescribe controlled substances like Xanax, Klonopin, or Ativan.

If you would like to inquire about a medication you don’t see here, message us at [email protected].
