What are the benefits of tracking my symptoms?

Tracking your symptoms may help you achieve better results

As you know, doctors monitor blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs over time as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. In much the same way, the monitoring and tracking of your mood and anxiety symptoms is essential to your physician’s efforts to help you feel better. You are the best advocate for improving your health, and by providing your physician with a record of your progress, you are promoting the best possible level of care. The M3 helps to address the serious problems of overlooked diagnoses, and either insufficient or mistreatment of mood and anxiety disorders. The enhanced dialogue between patient and doctor facilitated by the M3 leads to a greater recognition of symptoms, a mutual appreciation of the patient’s needs and options, and much improved treatment compliance overall. The consequences of untreated mood disorders go well beyond associated suffering, acute disability, and considerable potential for suicide. Individuals suffering from depression are two to four times more likely to suffer from a heart attack, and once a heart attack strikes, are two to four times more likely to die it. Recovery from other illnesses — including stroke, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer — is delayed or relatively less complete among individuals who have depression. Our great hope is that improvements in the symptom identification and treatment compliance of mood disorders will lead to saved lives and significant cost savings for the entire healthcare system.
