Include in your discussion:
What treatment do you recommend for patient’s first psychotic episode? Be specific in your answer and support your choice with a neurobiological rationale. Do not go into detail about the disorder at the expense of detail regarding the current treatment of the patient.
Choose your treatments as you would if the patient were in front of you. Do not give vague or generalized treatment plans; choose a treatment and explain why you chose it instead of any other options.
Include any and all considerations that accompany your choice of the treatment plan. For instance, do any diagnostics need to be done prior to initiating a drug?
