Include specific questions you might ask these people and why. • Explain what, if any, physical exams, and diagnostic tests would be appropriate for the patient and how the results would be used. • List a differential diagnosis for the patient. Identify the one that you think is most likely and explain why. • List two pharmacologic agents and their dosing that would be appropriate for the patient’s antidepressant therapy based on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

That is, what would be problematic with the use of this drug in individuals of other ethnicities? • Include any “check points” (i.e., follow-up data at Week 4, 8, 12, etc.), and indicate any therapeutic changes that you might make based on possible outcomes that may happen given your treatment options chosen.
