Pharmacology for Psychological Disorders

Psychological disorders  are conditions that involve a change in normal thinking, perceptions, behaviors, as well as relationships with other people. One of the common psychological disorders is the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which mainly affects children, making them hyperactive and unable to make good judgment. Psychological disorders have negative impacts on patients’ lives, thus, advanced practice nurses should ensure that they have handled patients effectively by undertaking the right diagnosis, treatment, as well as patient education.

Treating a Patient with ADHD

An 8 years old Caucasian girl was brought to my attention after being suspected to have ADHD. Her family history indicated that she was inattentive and forgetting things she learned in school. Her class teacher indicated that she hardly followed instructions to the full and was beginning to lose interest in school work.

After taking into consideration the patient’s factors, as well as medical history, my first decision was to offer her Ritalin (methylphenidate), which are chewable tablets, at a dosage of 10 mg, which would be taken orally in the morning. Methylphenidate (MPH) is known for treating ADHD, where studies have indicated that MPH is effective in minimizing the core symptoms (Frolich, Banaschewski, Dopfner & Gortz-Dorten, 2014). Although the girl’s parents reported that she was showing improvement in overall academic performance after four weeks, they were concerned that she felt funny in her heart, and that the heart rate hit 130 beats within a minute.
