NURS 6630C: Psychopharmacology

Patient 5: 27-year-old male with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. He has been hospitalized three (3) times in the past 1 year due to symptoms. When symptomatic, he becomes disorganized and paranoid. He will respond to auditory hallucinations. He will scream out at night after seeing a shadow in his room. He has delusions that the CIA is poisoning food and will not eat for multiple days.

Med List: paliperidone palmitate, clozapine, lamotrigine
