Mental Health and HIV Webinar Series Part 2: Pharmacotherapy for Depression

Thursday, May 19, 2022 - 5:00pm EDT to Thursday, May 19, 2022 - 6:00pm EDT
New England AETC Local Partner

How do you choose an antidepressant? And what do you do if it doesn’t work? In this webinar, we’ll discuss an evidence-based approach you can use to decide which medication is best for your patient depending on context, symptoms, and comorbidities. You’ll learn more about the most commonly prescribed antidepressants, including their impact on the management of HIV. We’ll also look at the strategies you can use when a medication hasn’t worked out as planned, from adjusting to switching to augmenting.
