Question 51 out of 1 pointsA 65-year-old woman has an advanced form of rheumatoid arthritis. Her treatment includes a regular dosage of methotrexate. The nurse will advise her to take which of the following vitamin supplements while taking the drug?ResponseFeedback:Taking vitamin B every day will help decrease the potential for adverse effects of methotrexate. This drug is given cautiously to veryyoung and elderly patients, because these patients' livers and kidneys cannot adequately clear the drug. Vitamin C is contraindicated with most antiarthritic and antigout drugs because it decreases the renal excretion of drugs. Supplements of vitamin A or D would not be necessary.Question 61 out of 1 pointsA nurse is developing a care plan for a patient who has multiple sclerosis. An expected outcome for the patient who is receiving glatiramer would be a decrease inResponseFeedback:Glatiramer should reduce the frequency of multiple sclerosis–related attacks and therefore decrease fatigue. Fatigue, weakness, spasticity, balance problems, bladder and bowel problems, numbness, vision loss, tremor, and vertigo are the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Chest pain, breathing difficulties, andheart palpitations are all identified side effects of glatiramer and are not common manifestations of MS.Question 71 out of 1 pointsA 49-year-old woman has been diagnosed with myalgia. The physician has

recommended aspirin. The patient is concerned that the aspirin will upset her stomach. The nurse will encourage the patient toResponseFeedback:Taking aspirin with milk or food minimizes the stomach upset because it buffers the stomach wall from direct contact with the medication, decreasing gastric distress. Chewable tablets can be chewed before swallowing or crushed and then advised to be taken with food or mixed in a drink. Swallowed whole, extended-release tablets are enteric coated to delay release of the aspirin, which againbuffers the stomach wall from the medication, decreasing gastric distress. Nonchewable tablets should be swallowed whole and should never be advised to be crushed or chewed.Question 81 out of 1 pointsA male patient with a diagnosis of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis is in the clinic to discuss with the nurse the possibility of self-administration of glatiramer. During the patient education session for self-administration, the nurse will emphasizeResponse Feedback:Since administration of glatiramer is by subcutaneous injection only,the nurse will teach the patient to rotate injection sites. Appropriate

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
