Sample Psychiatry Questions
Question 1
Patients taking Selegiline may test urine positive for which drug?
A.) benzodiazepine
B.) methamphetamine
C.) marijuana
D.) cocaine
E.) opiate
B.) methamphetamine
The correct answer is B. Selegiline is metabolized by the body into lmethamphetamine and lamphetamine, and a package insert is meant to alert users that this is a likely side effect of being on this drug. If they test positive for the other drugs on the list, it is more likely a positive drug test. Selegiline is a substituted phenethylamine used for the treatment of earlystage Parkinson's disease, depression and dementia. In normal clinical doses it is a selective irreversible MAOB inhibitor. However, in larger doses it loses its specificity and also inhibits MAOA.

Question 2
A health care provider learns from a mutual acquaintance that a former patient who was treated for opioid addiction 5 years previously has completed medical school and entered a residency program. They last saw the patient 4 years ago, at which time the patient was compliant with treatment. Which of the following is true?
A.) Breach confidentiality and report the health care provider to the medical board
B.) Contact the health care provider assistance program in the former patient’s state and
     reveal the history of drug abuse
C.) Without evidence that the former patient is impaired, you should not breach
D.) Contact the former patient and request evidence of compliance with treatment
E.) You have a legal duty to inform a responsible authority about the former patient’s
     potential impairment
C.) Without evidence that the former patient is impaired, you should not breach confidentiality
Correct answer: (C) Without evidence that the former patient is impaired, you should not breach confidentiality. Explanation: Although impairment may result from the use of psychoactive agents or illness, the presence of a disorder does not necessarily imply impairment. Unless a health care provider seems to be impaired now, there is no legal or ethical duty to report the health care provider based on history. Unless
there is evidence of current impairment or patient danger, a patient who is happens to be a health care provider has the same rights to confidentiality under the provider patient
relationship. When a health care provider identifies an impaired health care provider, there is a clear ethical duty to protect the patients of the impaired health care provider by reporting to an appropriate authority, although the legal responsibility to report an impaired health care provider varies among from state to state.
