    • D.

      Useful in early initiation with L-dopa in advanced stages

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Delays the needs for L-dopa treatment
    B. Allows the reduction and optimization of L-dopa usage
    C. Addresses the common side effects of L-dopa
    D. Useful in early initiation with L-dopa in advanced stages
    Explanation
    PACITANE is a medication used to treat Parkinson's disease. It works by blocking the effects of a certain natural substance in the body, which helps to improve muscle control and reduce stiffness. Early initiation of PACITANE can delay the need for L-dopa treatment, as it helps to manage the symptoms of Parkinson's disease on its own. It also allows for the reduction and optimization of L-dopa usage, as PACITANE can help to improve muscle control without relying solely on L-dopa. Additionally, PACITANE addresses the common side effects of L-dopa, such as dyskinesia, by providing an alternative treatment option. It can also be useful in early initiation with L-dopa in advanced stages, as it can help to improve overall symptom management.

  • 14. 

    PACITANE disturbs the balance of dopaminergic-cholinergic in striatum

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because PACITANE actually helps restore the balance of dopaminergic-cholinergic in the striatum. PACITANE is a medication that contains the active ingredient Trihexyphenidyl, which is an anticholinergic agent. It works by blocking the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is involved in the cholinergic system. By inhibiting the cholinergic system, PACITANE helps to rebalance the dopaminergic-cholinergic activity in the striatum, which can be beneficial in certain conditions such as Parkinson's disease.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The process change in PACITANE is not from wet granulation to dry granulation.

  • 16. 

    The drug induced parkinsonism is common with

    • A.

      Anti-Psychotics

    • B.

      Anti-hypertensives

    • C.

      Anti-depressants

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Drug-induced parkinsonism refers to a condition where the use of certain medications leads to symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease, such as tremors, rigidity, and bradykinesia. Anti-psychotics, anti-hypertensives, and anti-depressants are all known to be associated with drug-induced parkinsonism. These medications can affect the levels of dopamine in the brain, which is a key neurotransmitter involved in movement control. Therefore, it is not surprising that all of the mentioned drug classes can cause parkinsonism as a side effect.

    Depressed patients are 3 times as likely not to adhere to treatment for their medical illness as non depressed patients

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Depressed patients are more likely to struggle with adhering to their medical treatment compared to non-depressed patients. This could be due to various factors such as lack of motivation, low energy levels, difficulty concentrating, or feelings of hopelessness. These symptoms of depression can make it challenging for individuals to consistently follow their prescribed treatment regimen, leading to poorer health outcomes. Therefore, the statement that depressed patients are three times more likely not to adhere to treatment is true.

    Depression is a mental health disorder that can have a significant impact on a person's social functioning and overall quality of life. Individuals with depression often experience a loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed, withdraw from social interactions, and have difficulty maintaining relationships. They may also struggle with low energy levels, poor concentration, and feelings of worthlessness, which can further hinder their ability to engage in social activities and enjoy a fulfilling life.
