Clinical psychologists specialise in the treatment of people with diagnosable psychological disorders. This means that it is commonplace for our clients to have been prescribed medications. Your psychologist should be familiar with your drugs and how they affect you. However, we are not medical doctors and therefore cannot give advice regarding medications. There are rare examples of where a particular drug may cause problems from psychological therapy, and in these cases, your psychologist will liaise with your GP/psychiatrist to determine the best course of action.
