Depression: Treatment Considerations in Older Adults

Consultant Pharmacist Becky Bertram teaches this class. Depression is a serious mood disorder. It can affect the way you feel, act, and think. Depression is a common problem among older adults, but clinical depression is not a normal part of aging. Several treatment options are available to treat those diagnosed with Depressive Disorder. Learn from a pharmacist what medications are appropriate for older adults and how they are selected. Discuss when more than one antidepressant may be justified and when it might be appropriate to ask the prescriber about discontinuing an antidepressant.
