This week, you will present and defend your assigned stance (pro or con) and specific medication for your patient case study scenario with your peers.

Support your answers with evidence-based, peer-reviewed scholarly literature.

Note: APA style format with citations and references will apply.

As a reminder, these were the assigned medications:

Pro Con
Amphetamine Amphetamine
Methylphenidate Methylphenidate
Alpha Adrenergic Agonist Alpha Adrenergic Agonist

To prepare:

  • Review your research regarding your position and medication.
  • Consider how you will apply your specific position and medication to the presented patient case.


Post your response detailing your argument for the following:

  • What are the advantages or disadvantages to your class of medication (options for different administration, length of duration, etc.)?
  • What are the advantages or disadvantages to the other medication options?
  • What possible side effects or considerations need to be evaluated?
  • Provide one example for each consideration—legal, ethical, and social implications—for prescribing the medication category.

Note: Your response needs to be supported by three 3 scholarly peer-reviewed resources located outside of your course learning resources.
