PRESCRIBING FOR PREGNANT WOMEN with Bipolar disorder

    January 10, 2024

Topic: Pregnant woman with Bipolar disorder
 
After assessing and diagnosing a patient, PMHNPs must take into consideration special characteristics of the patient before determining an appropriate course of treatment. For pharmacological treatments that are not FDA-approved for a particular use or population, off-label use may be considered when the potential benefits could outweigh the risks.
In this Discussion, you will investigate a specific disorder and determine potential appropriate treatments for when it occurs in an older adult or pregnant woman.

TO PREPARE:

·        Choose one:  pregnant women. Then, select a specific disorder from the DSM-5-TR to use.
¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† You will need to recommend one FDA-approved drug, one non-FDA-approved ‚Äúoff-label‚ÄĚ drug, and one nonpharmacological intervention for treating the disorder in that population.
·        Recommend one FDA-approved drug, one off-label drug, and one nonpharmacological intervention for treating your chosen disorder in older adults or pregnant women.
·        Explain the risk assessment you would use to inform your treatment decision  making. What are the risks and benefits of the FDA-approved medicine? What are the risks and benefits of the off-label drug?
·        Explain whether clinical practice guidelines exist for this disorder, and if so, use them to justify your recommendations. If not, explain what information you would need to take into consideration.
·        Support your reasoning with at least three current, credible scholarly resources, one each on the FDA-approved drug, the off-label, and a nonpharmacological intervention for the disorder.
