Module 7 – Overview of Pharmacotherapy Fall 2023

Topic: Antipsychotic Medication: Antipsychotic medication is an essential part of the treatment of early psychosis. While the responsibility for prescribing the medication falls to the psychiatrist or general practitioner, clinicians have an important role with respect to exploring issues around medication adherence and side effects. Describe a situation where you were faced with challenges about a client's medication (e.g., stopped taking their medication against adivce, gained significant weight as a side effect, etc.). What were the things you were able to do to help? How do you/would you approach discussing sexual side effects of medications with your clients? Alternatively, feel free to brainstorm with the group on any medication-related issue you are encountering on your current caseload (with anonymity).
