I have the same problem: this kind of exercises. In that case i think that A is the good answer because of its parallelism: having been prescribed- having been taken.

In the above example all other choices have some issues except A.

B: It cannot point to therapies
C: being usage
D and E: they – patients or therapies

A: parallel ok and correct passive usage (no need to mention who prescribed ect)

As pointed out earlier, "having" is not only parallel but also it is acting as subordinate clause to the main verb.
