- Additional analysis of the case: This includes national guidelines that were or should have been used to make diagnosis or treatment and review how they applied or how care was unique but based in guidelines.
- Follow-up/Referrals: This means how the patient was doing when seen a second time if this applies. This would be their response to your plan of care. OR when Follow up will occur and what actions will be taken on the follow up visit. Referrals if indicated.
- Quality: Include anything that should have been considered in hindsight or changes you would make in seeing similar patients in the future with the same complaint, history, exam, or diagnosis. Add anything you learned from discussion in the class that shed new light on this patient.

Week 6: Mental Health Final Treatment Plan/Analysis – Part 2
The intended primary diagnosis is panic disorder.
The medications will be:
Inhibitors of serotonin reuptake (SSRIs). SSRI antidepressants are often the first choice for treating panic attacks since they are generally safe and have a low risk of significant adverse effects. For the treatment of the panic disorder, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline (CDER, 2021).
Inhibitors of serotonin reuptake. Antidepressants are a subclass of these drugs. One of the most often used anti-panic medications is Venlafaxine.
- These tranquilizers have a depressive effect on the neurological system. Propranolol and clonazepam are two of the benzodiazepines authorized by the FDA to treat panic disorder (Keefe et al., 2019). Because benzodiazepines can be habit-forming, they are usually only prescribed for a brief period. If P.J. had a history of substance abuse, he should avoid these drugs. They can potentially have significant adverse effects when used with other medications.
