E73 - (CME) Stimulating Side Effects: What to Do When Your Patient is Using Methamphetamine with Dr. William Sauve
Methamphetamine is an extremely serious problem in the United States, and it remains one of the most commonly misused stimulant drugs in the world. There are severe psychological, and medical consequences from methamphetamine misuse and abuse. This poses a particular challenge for clinicians treating patients for mental health conditions that are comorbid with substance use disorder (SUD). This is especially challenging when there are also interactions that can alter or influence psychiatric medications used to treat these patients. Questions such as the following arise: Given the high comorbidity of SUD with ADHD, how often should you check drug screens, and what is the threshold for discontinuing the stimulants if tests come back positive? In this podcast episode, Dr. William Sauve’ addresses these concerns, and much more.
