Medication Consultation Service

Medication Consultation Service

Medication is used as first-line and adjunctive evidence-based treatment for anxiety, depressive, and mood disorders. Research studies in children and adolescents, as well as adults, have shown that, for some disorders, the combination of medication and CBT is the most effective treatment. The Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD) provides medication consultation, management, and expert second-opinion evaluations.
