    Ep 35 — Sue Varma, MD — Psychiatric Medication

    Ep 35 — Sue Varma, MD — Psychiatric Medication

    The decision to go on psychiatric medication is not an easy one.  Worries about being overly dependent, experiencing negative side effects, and the stigma of medication prevent many people from considering an option that could be extremely beneficial. On the flip side, medical communities too often default to a quick fix and neglect other factors in a person's life that may be contributing to their depression and anxiety. Our interview with Dr. Sue Varma, psychiatrist and professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, helps to clarify some of these questions around psychiatric medication and provide a better understanding in order to make more informed decisions.
