One of the ways I have seen psychiatrists and other qualified health professionals address this type of situation is by adding additional medications to an already established regimen, a practice commonly referred to as adjunctive therapy. Another action that providers may take is to adjust dosages, but your physician or appropriate mental health care provider can better address your specific symptoms and recommend a proper course of treatment.
