Read the following excerpt from this patient's health record: Mrs. Ewing is here for follow-up for her schizophrenia. At her last visit, she complained of dystonia while taking her haloperidol. I changed her to a newer antipsychotic, and she is here today to follow up with the results. Overall, her condition is improved, and she has not had any new hallucinations. Her only concern today is recent insomnia (the past week). She noticed the insomnia started when she began a new job. She says that learning her new job has been stressful. She has been anxious at night, and that has made it hard for her to sleep.
