Your patient is a 57-year-old woman who was diagnosed with MDD six months ago and began therapy with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Her mood has improved significantly but she is having difficulty at work and home concentrating, remembering important events, and making decisions.

 

Your patient is a 28-year-old man referred to you for depression. His adherence to his current regimen of a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) is poor. When asked, he reports that his current antidepressant causes “sex life problems” and that he often skips doses, including on most weekends.
