83: Should You Use Medication to Manage Your Mental Health? w/Dr. Kim

If you’ve ever considered using medication to deal with your mental health. Questions about how it may affect your personality or do they even work may have crossed your mind. After all, we have all heard those horror stories about people looking like zombies after taking mental health medication. But what is often not talked about is the thousands of people each year who are able to break free from long-standing mental health issues through the use of medication. On today’s show, I’ve brought in board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist Dr. UeJin Kim to help us explore using medication to improve your mental health.
