A -- having, for example been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low to be effective or having been
B -- having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being( DRUG PRESCRIPTION WAS INEFFECTIVE: NOT RIGHT)
C -- as, for example, having too low of a dosage of prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being
D -- when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage for it to be effective, or were ( I DONT THINK " WERE" IS CORRECT IN THIS STATEMENT)
E -- for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been( AGAIN LOW DOSAGE DRUG PRESCRIPTION: NOT RIGHT

I am finding difficult to differentiate between A and C

being most of the times is wrong on gmat..
if you have two options which look competitive eliminate the one with being

Some patients who do not respond to therapies for depression may simply have received inadequate treatment, having, for example, been prescribed a drug at a dosage too low to be effective or having been taken off a drug too soon.

Here's my two cents.

For this particular question, it is essential to understand the meaning first.

1. Some patients don't respond to therapies for depression
2. The reason may be the inadequate treatment
3. low dosage prescription
4. took off a drug

Some patients who do not respond to therapies for depression may simply have received inadequate treatment,

'may have received' is the present perfect tense. The changes in the treatment has recently happened. In order to throw good examples, the examples must have been changed recently to reflect the present perfect tense.

(A) having, for example, been prescribed a drug at a dosage too low to be effective or having been
sounds little wordy but correct

(B) having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being
meaning is changed. sounds like the patient intended to hold onto an ineffective drug.

(C) as, for example, having too low of a dosage of a prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being

'as' is referring to the treatment. No sense

(D) when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage to be effective, or were
lack of parallelism

(E) for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been
'for example' sounds like modifying the treatment.

How can A be the answer?? " been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low ..."

AS ???

How is AS correct in this ?

E -- for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been

underlined portion shall provide an example or explanation to the first argument that patients have received inadequate treatment.
Lets park decision on A after first reading.
B – prescription that was ineffective makes wrong sense. It shall be a drug which was ineffective. Hence a meaning error.
C – ‘it’ pronoun is ambiguious. We are not sure if it modifies ‘dosage’ or a ‘drug’.
D – it uses another clause. First clause is not properly connected with new clause by using ‘comma + when’ connector. Additionally, it makes parallelism error – they have been.... or (they) were...
E – same as in option D. Parallelism error – they have ... or been ... Additionally, this option uses ‘with’ to modify prescription (ie. Noun). It is wrong usage of with. Here with has not been used as a preposition. Further, the meaning conveys that prescripiton – too low to be effective (meaning error).
Hence, option A is the best choice. It uses correct parallelism – having been ... or having been.
