It took some time to achieve the product I was looking for, but we eventually got there. I do feel like a lot of hard work was put into this, and it even exceeded the page requirement. I'm pretty pleased overall. I give my thanks.

Begin Paxil 10 mg orally daily
Begin Wellbutrin 75 mg orally BID
Case Study of the above client
I selected Zoloft 25 mg orally daily
No change in depressive symptoms at all
Increase dose to 50 mg orally daily
Depressive symptoms decrease by 50%. Cleint tolerating well
Maintain current dose
At this point, sufficient symptom reduction has been achieved. This is considered a Ã¢â‚¬Å“responseÃ¢â‚¬Â to therapy. Can continue with current dose for additional 4 week to see if any further reductions in depressive symptoms are noted. An increase in dose may be warranted since this is not Ã¢â‚¬Å“fullÃ¢â‚¬Â remission- Discuss pros/cons of increasing drug dose with client at this time and empower the client to be part of the decision. There is no indication that the drug therapy should be changed to an SNRI at this point as the client is clearly responding to this therapy
