Research Question on Depression

Answered by on -

A.

You can assist a client in considering the pros and cons of a medication. Present the client with all pertinent information about the medication and encourage him or her to do additional research.

You can also encourage the client to try the medication and see how they like it. If it’s not right for them, they can always try something else. Finding the right medication is often a trial and error process.

You might also try providing the client with information about other people who had success with the medication. Perhaps speaking to others who have successfully tried the medication could help. Finally, you can encourage the client to take the medication, but ultimately it is up to the client. I hope this helps. Please take care.
