Begin Depakote 250 mg orally three times daily

Begin Abilify 10 mg orally daily

Arrange to see Stefanie every 3 months for routine follow-up

My decision: Begin Abilify 10 mg orally daily

RESULTS OF DECISION POINT TWO

Client returns to clinic in four weeks

Stefanie reports that her mood seems a bit more “stable.” She states that she notices that she has not been as “sad” since she started taking the medication.

She does report that the side effect was quite concerning at times. However, she reports that this is no longer happening.
