Concordance in action: case study of medication management

Roy, Dionne; Snowden, Austyn


Dionne Roy


This article discusses a case study describing discontinuation symptoms relating to the abrupt withdrawal of the antidepressant venlafaxine. The article explores alternative explanations for the symptoms presented, and highlights the importance of systematic and collaborative assessment. This case study shows that without these essential aspects of concordance, the aims of non-medical prescribing are not met.
