The duration of symptoms alone is not enough to determine the severity of depression. The severity of depression is typically assessed based on the number and intensity of symptoms experienced, as well as their impact on daily functioning and quality of life. Therefore, it is important for health care professionals to consider a comprehensive evaluation and assessment before making any conclusions about the severity of depression.

    • F.

      A. and C.

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    When prescribing an anti-depressant in the late life patient, several factors need to be considered. The cost of the medication is important as it should be affordable for the patient. Family support is crucial as it can greatly impact the patient's well-being and adherence to the treatment. Memory is another important consideration as some anti-depressants may affect cognitive function. Dosing is also significant as it should be adjusted based on the patient's age and overall health. Therefore, all of the mentioned factors (cost, family supports, memory, and dosing) need to be taken into account when prescribing an anti-depressant for a late life patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A response to Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) should be seen

    • A.

      Within one week

    • B.

      Within two to four weeks

    • C.

      Within several months

    Correct Answer
    B. Within two to four weeks
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Within two to four weeks". This is because SSRIs are known to take some time to reach their full effectiveness in the body. It usually takes a couple of weeks for the medication to build up in the system and start balancing the levels of serotonin in the brain. Therefore, patients should expect to see a response to SSRIs within two to four weeks of starting the medication.

    The teaching plan for a patient with depression should include which of the following:

    • A.

      Medication effects are not immediate

    • B.

      Depression has a biological component

    • C.

      Effects of immediate discontinuation of an anti-depressant

    • D.

      Identification of pleasant events

    • E.

      All of the above

    • F.

      A. and B.

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The teaching plan for a patient with depression should include all of the above options. Medication effects are not immediate, so it is important for the patient to understand that it may take some time for the medication to start working. Depression has a biological component, meaning that it is not simply a result of personal weakness or character flaw. The effects of immediate discontinuation of an antidepressant can be severe, so it is crucial for the patient to be aware of this and follow the recommended tapering schedule. Finally, identification of pleasant events can be helpful in managing depression, as it can promote positive emotions and improve overall mood.
