These research studies provide valuable information about the efficacy of various pharmacological treatments for depression in adolescents. The study highlights that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are more potent than tricyclics antidepressants in improving symptoms, and reducing the risk of relapse, is superior to other drugs. It also gives insight on potential side effects that can inform treatment decisions or dosages.
If my practice differs from this article’s recommendations – such as prescribing a different type of medication or incorporating psychotherapy techniques alongside pharmaceutical treatments – then I could use it to support my approach by citing its findings and referencing scientific studies that have been conducted on the topic. It helps me demonstrate my credibility and also allows me to describe why some treatments are more suitable for specific patients depending on their circumstances. In the end, there are no two identical cases. Therefore having reliable research that is based on evidence will help me to deliver personalized care and achieve optimal results.
