Dr. Nikita Barai presents a case of a geriatric patient presenting with anxiety and depression, as well as multiple ED visits. The patient has been engaged in talk therapy for 6 months but Dr. Barai feels the patient would benefit from medication as well and seeks pharmacological consultation. Drs. Seema Quraishi and Jordan Schwartzberg then present a didactic on managing side effects of commonly prescribed anxiolytics. Their talk covers common medications and use cases, special populations, high utilizers, and more.
