Description

The use of medication in the treatment of depression has increased steadily over the years—by 2010, one in five adults was reportedly taking at least one psychotropic medication. This module explores the landscape for the use of such medications, and details how CMs and other team members must work together to help patients manage this form of treatment, while lowering the chances of medication-related complications. The module details the different types of antidepressant medications (the most popular being selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs), and how they can affect different populations (such as adolescents or the elderly) differently. The module also explores the sometimes problematic use of complementary, alternative and integrative health (CAIH) therapies.
