Polypharmacy is an ever-increasing concern for today’s mental health administrators. The amount of psychiatric polypharmacy has been increasing each year. The main focus of polypharmacy awareness has been related to both clinical concerns – such as patient safety and more effective, evidence-based prescribing – and costs.

It also provides possible solutions for mental health care providers to manage it.
