A neuropsychiatrist is a medical doctor who often prescribes medications to help assist people in dealing with intense emotions or behavior. The brain injured individual may be confused and agitated along with suffering with depression. The neuropsychiatrist, because of their medical training, understands the body’ functions and the complex relationship between emotional illness and other medical illnesses and may thus use medications to help the individual cope with their problems. The physician is able to monitor and address medication issues, medical concerns with psychiatric issues and provide referrals. He also provides patients with education, feedback, and insight into the limitations and difficulties they are experiencing.
