Patient HL
The symptoms exhibited by the patient HL are Nausea and Vomiting and diarrhea. These
symptoms are caused by many factors that incorporate drug ingestion, drug overdose, and
gastrointestinal problems. Therefore, it is important to diagnose the cause before prescribing any
treatment plan.
Patient HL has a history marked by drug misuse. Therefore, it is conceivable that nausea
and vomiting by patient HL are because of drug withdrawal. The treatment line should be
founded on what sort of drug the patient was pulling out from (Grazzi et al., 2017).
The symptoms exhibited by patient HL could likewise emerge because of gastrointestinal
(GIT) problems, which also portrays the very side effects of HL's that are nausea, vomiting, and
diarrhea. He might have had a GIT problem through contaminated food or water (Khaneghah et
al., 2020).
The other reason for his sickness could be that he prescribed drugs that Patient HL is
taking, incorporating Synthroid, Prednisone, and Nifedipine. These three medications have
nausea and vomiting as side effects. But, again, this could be because of HL's hypersensitivity to
drugs or drug interactions (Brochado et al., 2018).
According to my rationale, my diagnosis for patient HL is Acute Gastroenteritis.
Drug therapy plan include;
1. Antiemetics drugs like Sodium citrate or dextrose for general vomiting.
2. Antidiarrheal drugs like lactobacillus acidophilus or loperamide should be prescribed for
general diarrhea.

3. The cause of the disease should be eliminated by providing clean water and
uncontaminated food to the patient.
4. If nausea and vomiting are a result of drug interactions, then the prescribed drugs should
be replaced with other drugs.
5. For Acute Gastroenteritis, antibiotic drugs should be administered to treat bacterial
infections.
After the proper interpretation of the cause of HL's problem and diagnosis, a suitable
drug plan should be administered immediately to patient HL.
