MUSE Psychological Associates

Evaluation and Resolution of Personal Concerns

Medication Consultation: Medication can be indicated or counterindicated for a given person. Dr. Muse reviews medication where needed and makes recommendations to the patient and to the prescribing professional. 

The integration of pharmacotherapy with psychopharmacology has been an aim for many years among medical psychologists. I am licensed to prescribe in the State of Louisiana and to consult on medication issues in the State of Maryland. As medical psychologists are inclined to say: "The authority to prescribe is the also the authority to unprescribe". While I have no such authority in the State of Maryland, I work closely with prescribers to reduce medication where appropriate. Psychotherapy obviates the need for medication is many, but not all, cases.

I am proud of the part that I have played along with other medical psychologists to begin to address the integration of medication management with psycho-social therapeutic approaches, and I helped to edit a ground-breaking volume on this subject for psychologists.
