I have a question when a patient that has a dx of bipolar disease

Resolved Question:

I have a question when a patient that has a dx of bipolar disease and when the pdoc does an evaluation do they normally ask the question: "What do people say about your skin".

Also does a regular doctor when they are conducting a medical history ask a patient on the initial visit when they do their assessment anything about their skin. Does the regular doctor have a list of questions they ask their patients when they do their assessment. Where would I find this inforamtion.

In addition, where would I find a list of questions that a pdoc would ask a bipolar patient if they were about to conduct an evaluation if they were to participate in a clinical trial for a drug called Galantamine to investigated cognitive and memory problems.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Every doctor asks different questions so it is hard to speak to the skin questions. It may be something they noticed or just a part of their routine. If part of drug trial, they may be interested or concerned about potential skin side effects (Rash, etc). Research protocols are confidential, so you nor I would be able to access the evaluation questions. If the study is being conducted at a University Medical School, the best you can like do is look up the Med. School's psychiatry department. They often list what clinical trial are in progress and which they are recruiting for.
