Effect of leaf essential oil from Piper solmsianum C.DC. in mice behaviour. (1/63)

The essential oil from Piper solmsianum leaves and its major compound (sarisan) were tested to verify their influences upon mice behaviour. The essential oil was obtained by hydrodistillation in a modified Clevenger extractor and analysed by GC/ MS. This analysis revealed in the oil the presence of monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes and of arylpropanoids. The compound sarisan, a myristicin analogue, was isolated from the oil to perform the pharmacological tests. Emulsions of the oil and of sarisan (5.0 and 10.0% v/v) were used in the tests. Pentobarbital (30 mg/ kg s.c.) or diazepam (2.5 mg/ kg s.c.) were tested as standard drugs to verify depressant or anxiolytic effects, respectively. Both essential oil and sarisan showed to have exciting and depressant effects in the tested animals.  (+info)

The ability of environmental context to facilitate psychomotor sensitization to amphetamine can be dissociated from its effect on acute drug responsiveness and on conditioned responding. (2/63)

Doses of amphetamine or cocaine that fail to induce psychomotor sensitization when given to a rat in its home cage can produce robust sensitization if given immediately following placement into a relatively novel, distinct environment. A drug-associated context can serve as a conditioned stimulus, and therefore may promote robust sensitization by facilitating associative learning processes. We examined this hypothesis by habituating rats to the test environment for 1 or 6--8 hr prior to each drug injection, which degrades the ability of environmental context to serve as an effective conditioned stimulus. When 0.5 mg/kg of amphetamine was administered intravenously immediately after placement into a distinct environment there was a large acute psychomotor response (rotational behavior) on the first test day, and robust sensitization developed with repeated daily injections. When the same treatment was administered in the home cage, there was a small acute response and no sensitization developed. The enhanced acute response seen in the distinct environment was significantly attenuated by 1 hr of habituation to the test environment, and completely abolished by 6--8 hr of habituation. Also, as little as 1 hr of habituation completely prevented the development of a conditioned rotational response. In contrast, neither 1 nor 6--8 hr of habituation had any effect on the ability of amphetamine to induce robust behavioral sensitization. It is concluded that the ability of a distinct environment to facilitate sensitization to amphetamine can be dissociated from its effect on acute drug responsiveness and from the ability of drug-associated environmental stimuli to elicit a conditioned response. Possible mechanisms by which a distinct environment facilitates sensitization are discussed.  (+info)

Bronchodilator therapy and hyperactivity in preschool children. (3/63)

The common report of parents of asthmatic children that inhaled/nebulised salbutamol causes overactive behaviour was investigated. Nineteen children were assessed in a standardised setting before and after the administration of nebulised salbutamol and placebo. Neither parental report nor observer ratings suggested any significant increase in the child's level of activity.  (+info)

The bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of subcutaneous, nebulized and oral morphine-6-glucuronide. (4/63)

AIMS: Morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G), one of the active metabolites of morphine, has attracted considerable interest as a potent opioid analgesic with an apparently superior therapeutic index. To date studies have used the intravenous route, which is generally unacceptable in the treatment of cancer related pain. The aim of this study was to define the pharmacokinetics, toxicity and cardio-respiratory effects of three alternative routes of administration of M6G. METHODS: Ten healthy volunteers participated in an open randomized study. Subjects received M6G 2 mg as an intravenous bolus, 20 mg orally, 2 mg subcutaneously and 4 mg by the nebulized route. Pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and peak flow rate were monitored and subjective toxicity recorded on rating and visual analogue scales. RESULTS: After i.v. M6G the mean (+/- s.d.) AUC(0,infinity) standardized to a dose of 1 mg was 223 +/- 57 nmol l(-1) h, mean elimination half-life was 1.7 +/- 0.7 h and the mean clearance was 157 +/- 46 ml min(-1). These parameters were virtually identical after subcutaneous administration which had a bioavailability (F(0,infinity)) of 102 +/- 35% (90% CI 82, 117%) and t(max) of 0.5 +/- 0.2 h. The mean bioavailability of nebulized M6G was 6 +/- 2% (90% CI 4, 7%) with a t(max) of 1.2 +/- 0.8 h. Following oral M6G two plasma M6G peaks were seen in 7 of the 10 subjects, the first with a t(max) of 3.1 (+/- 0.9) h. The second peak had a t(max) of 13.4 (+/-5.0) h, started approximately 4 h after dosing, and was associated with the detection of plasma M3G and morphine, suggesting that M6G was significantly hydrolysed in the gut to morphine, which was then glucuronidated following absorption. Although the overall mean bioavailability was 11 +/- 3% (90% CI 9, 12%), confining the analysis to data from the first peak suggested a bioavailability of directly absorbed M6G of only 4 +/- 4%. Apart from a characteristic dysphoria following intravenous and subcutaneous M6G, there was no significant toxicity. CONCLUSIONS: With the minimal toxicity reported in this and previous studies, subcutaneous infusion of M6G may potentially provide clinically useful analgesia for advanced cancer pain. Nebulized M6G is not significantly absorbed via the lungs, and if opiates are shown to have a local effect in the lung, reducing the sensation of breathlessness, then nebulized administration is likely to minimize systemic effects. Oral M6G has poor bioavailability, but is significantly hydrolysed in the gut to morphine, which is subsequently glucuronidated following absorption. This circuitous route accounts for the majority of systemically available M6G after oral administration.  (+info)

Comparison of caudal and intravenous clonidine in the prevention of agitation after sevoflurane in children. (5/63)

BACKGROUND: In children, sevoflurane anaesthesia is associated with postanaesthetic agitation, which is treated mainly with opioids. We compared the effectiveness of epidural and i.v. clonidine in the prevention of this postanaesthetic agitation. METHODS: Eighty children aged 3-8 yr (ASA I-II) received standardized general anaesthesia with inhaled sevoflurane and caudal epidural block with 0.175% bupivacaine 1 ml kg-1 for minor surgery. The children were assigned randomly to four groups: (I) clonidine 1 microgram kg-1 added to caudal bupivacaine; (II) clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 added to caudal bupivacaine; (III) clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 i.v. and caudal bupivacaine; and (IV) caudal block with bupivacaine, no clonidine (control). A blinded observer assessed the behaviour of the children during the first postoperative hour. Secondary end-points were the time to fitness for discharge from the postanaesthesia care unit, and haemodynamic and respiratory variables. RESULTS: The incidence of agitation was 22, 0, 5 and 39% in groups I, II, III and IV respectively (P < 0.05 for groups II and III compared with group IV). During the first hour after surgery, patients in groups II and III had significantly lower scores for agitation than group IV patients. Time to fitness for discharge did not differ between the four groups. CONCLUSIONS: Clonidine 3 micrograms kg-1 prevented agitation after sevoflurane anaesthesia, independently of the route of administration. The effect of clonidine appears to be dose-dependent, as an epidural dose of 1 microgram kg-1 failed to reduce it.  (+info)

Nithsdale Schizophrenia Surveys 23: movement disorders. 20-year review. (6/63)

BACKGROUND: In the past 10 years the new atypical antipsychotic drugs have stimulated further interest in the pharmacological management of schizophrenia. The risk of movement disorders has been reported to be less with these new agents. AIMS: To examine the current prevalence of movement disorders among all people with schizophrenia in a discrete geographical area, to compare the prevalence in patients receiving and not receiving atypical antipsychotic drugs; and to compare current prevalence with prevalence over the past 20 years. METHOD: In Nithsdale, south-west Scotland, in 1999/2000, we replicated previous studies by using the Abnormal Involuntary Movements Scale, Simpson-Angus scale and Barnes Akathisia Rating Scale to measure tardive dyskinesia, parkinsonism and akathisia, respectively. Mental state was assessed by the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale. RESULTS: In 136 patients the prevalence of probable tardive dyskinesia was 43%, of parkinsonism 35% and of akathisia 15%. Parkinsonism was present as often in those receiving atypicals as in those receiving standard oral antipsychotics. The prevalence of tardive dyskinesia has doubled over 20 years. CONCLUSIONS: Movement disorders remain significant problems for patients despite the introduction of atypical antipsychotic drugs.  (+info)

Akathisia--diagnostic dilemma and behavioral treatment. (7/63)

Akathisia, an involuntary movement disorder resulting from exposure to antipsychotics, is characterized by subjective restlessness and a strong desire to move about. The diagnosis is often complicated by the overlapping symptoms of pseudoakathisia, chronic akathisia and tardive dyskinesia. This report deals with a patient with schizophrenia who developed akathisia after exposure to antipsychotics. Later, she developed movements that were more like pseudoakathisia and tardive dyskinesia rather than acute akathisia. On failure of anti-akathisia medication, she was treated with a behavioral regime to which her akathisia responded. This behavioral regime used the technique of distraction as a primary tool. This case report highlights the diagnostic difficulties in akathisia and the application of behavioral treatment for akathisia that is non-responsive to anti-akathisia medication.  (+info)

The effects of temporary inactivation of the core and the shell subregions of the nucleus accumbens on prepulse inhibition of the acoustic startle reflex and activity in rats. (8/63)

The nucleus accumbens can be dissociated into at least two subregions: a 'core' and a 'shell'. Using temporary chemical inactivation of these subregions, we investigated whether they are differentially involved in the regulation of prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle reflex and activity. For this purpose, rats were bilaterally implanted with guide cannulae aimed at either the core or the shell and infused with the GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol (0.5 microg/0.2 microl per side). The control group consisted of vehicle infused and unoperated rats. To ascertain the region selectivity of the infusions, 0.2 microl of [3H]muscimol was infused into either the core or the shell of an additional group of rats. The behavioral results demonstrated that in comparison to the control group, inactivation of the core led to a loss of the prepulse intensity dependency of PPI. Moreover, core inactivation resulted in akinesia directly after infusion, but in hyperactivity 24 and 72 h thereafter in contrast to the control group. In both experiments, inactivation of the shell was ineffective compared to controls. Analysis of the autoradiograms revealed that the spread of drug into the other subregion was minimal, supporting the region selectivity of the inactivation. These results lend further support to the existence of a functional dissociation between the core and the shell, with the former being preferentially involved in PPI and locomotion. The persistent hyperactivity after the muscimol infusion into the core could be explained by compensatory mechanisms taking place in the nucleus accumbens.  (+info)

Akathisia is a relatively common side effect of neuroleptic medication that occurs within 1 week to 6 months after the initiation of medication. Akathisia is characterized by a variety of movement manifestations, such as fidgeting, irritability, inability to sit or stand still, marching in place, continuous trunk motions, sleeplessness, and a subjective sense of restlessness. Akathisia has been studied primarily in schizophrenic patients, although reports on individuals with mental retardation suggest that akathisia also occurs in this population. This study will characterize the movement dynamics of akathisia in schizophrenic and mentally retarded adults using two experimental series.. The first experimental series will compare chronic akathisia in schizophrenic and MR patients. Four groups of MR patients and four groups of schizophrenic patients will be studied: young (age 18 to 38) with chronic akathisia, older (age 40 to 60) with chronic akathisia, young on neuroleptics without akathisia, ...
Akathisia is a common and distressing adverse effect of antipsychotic drugs and is characterised by restlessness and mental unease, both of which can be intense. Akathisia is associated with patterns of restless movement, including rocking, walking on the spot when standing, shuffling and tramping, or swinging one leg on the other when sitting. People may constantly pace up and down in an attempt to relieve the sense of unrest. Several strategies have been used to decrease akathisia, and this review is one in a series addressing the effects of drug treatments on such symptoms. We found no trial-based evidence for the use of anticholinergic drugs for akathisia, thus rendering firm treatment recommendations impossible. ...

Unfortunately, many medical professionals dont recognize akathisia or that its a drug-induced state. Instead, they write off the symptoms as a worsening of mental illness or other condition. Sometimes they even raise the dose of the offending drug and when the patients condition worsens as a result, they may prescribe more medication which can sometimes further exacerbate the problem or that fail to offer relief. If the medical professionals you encounter are ignorant about akathisia or attempt to blame it on something else, present them with medical information on the condition or search until you find a knowledgeable physician. The presence and severity of akathisia can be measured using the Barnes Akathisia Scale.. The following video of Stephanie Eisensmith was submitted by her daughter.

EPS encompass several acute/reversible (akathisia and dystonia) and chronic/irreversible (tardive dyskinesia and focal perioral tremor) side effects of psychoactive medications. They are believed to be caused by a blockade of dopamine receptors (D2) or depletion of dopamine in the basal ganglia. Older (typical or first generation antipsychotics) have a higher propensity for producing EPS because of strong binding to dopamine receptors (D2). Newer (atypical, or second-generation antipsychotics) have a lower risk of EPS, in part due to blockage of serotonin receptors. Continued untreated akathisia is a risk factor for developing chronic akathisia ...

The current review is consistent with other evidence pointing to an increase in suicidal behaviour and ideation among children and adolescents taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).5 The paper by Sharma and colleagues is the first large scale, quantitative analysis to show an increase in aggressive behaviour in this age group. The analysis did not detect an increase in suicide, suicide attempts, suicidal ideation, or aggression in adults, and meta-analyses of data on adults remain conflicting.6 7 Early case reports, published before the issue became controversial, document occurrence of these effects in adults, however, and provide evidence of the mechanism of these effects. These reports describe a state of agitation, somewhat similar to the akathisia produced by antipsychotics, associated with intense and violent suicidal preoccupation.8 However, as Sharma and colleagues show, recording of akathisia in antidepressant trials remains inconsistent and unreliable, hence we have ...

Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults Patients, their families, and their caregivers should be encouraged to be alert to the emergence of anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), hypomania, mania, other unusual changes in behavior, worsening of depression, and suicidal ideation, especially early during antidepressant treatment and when the dose is adjusted up or down. Families and caregivers of patients should be advised to look for the emergence of such symptoms on a day-to-day basis, since changes may be abrupt. Such symptoms should be reported to the patients prescriber or health professional, especially if they are severe, abrupt in onset, or were not part of the patients presenting symptoms. Symptoms such as these may be associated with an increased risk for suicidal thinking and behavior and indicate a need for very close monitoring and possibly changes in ...

This morning I was in urgent care for a few hours with an asthma attack. It took two nebulizer treatments and a shot in the butt of steriods to get my breathing calmed down.

The doc told me to stay off work for two days, but I think Ill still go in for at least part of tomorrow..

We trusted our doctors and took a pill, as prescribed, and it damaged one of the two main circuit boards that regulate our brains. We have damaged GABA receptors, which means our bodies and minds dont have the ability to slow/calm down. We suffer from chemical brain damage that can take a long time (sometimes years) to heal. Many of us have severe physical symptoms: painful joints, bones, muscles, teeth, eyes, mouth, etc. Our skin burns. It feels as if we have bugs crawling under our skin, or that bees are stinging us. Our muscles twitch and spasm. Our legs are weak and our balance is off; walking is difficult. But some of us do walk, and walk, and walk, as we are suffering from akathisia, a movement disorder that causes an inner restlessness and a compelling need to be in constant motion. We have painful and frightening pressure in our heads, making it feel as if the world is sloshing around us. Many of us are bedridden for months at a time, unable to take care of the most basic of human ...

Medicine is filled with difficult choices, and I ask that the benzo community consider withdrawal akathisia as a possible valid indication for the drugs.. We, the benzodiazepine community, have the same aloneness in the wake of losing everything. Everything.. We have the same suicidal ideation and action. We look at our doctors desperately afraid and dont tell them we want to die either for fear of institutionalization..

It is important to address some limitations of meta-analysis. First, each study has a different study protocol. This can elicit significant heterogeneity, although significant heterogeneity in our study was not suspected by statistical analysis. It is debatable whether it is justified to combine the results of different protocols in the calculation of the pooled OR and in drawing conclusions. Second, emergence agitation was the focus of this meta-analysis; however, measurement of emergence agitation in each respective study was not always performed using a validated and reliable tool. This may preclude comparisons among the clinical trials. Most studies used a self-made, nonvalidated rating scale to evaluate emergence agitation, which focused more on behavioral than psychometric factors. None used a validated scoring system such as the Pediatric Anesthesia Emergence Delirium scale.7 Furthermore, the emergence agitation was evaluated by a blinded specialist in some studies; in other studies, ...
Altered heart rate dynamics associated with antipsychotic-induced subjective restlessness in patients with schizophrenia Jong-Hoon Kim,1,2 Jun-Hyung Ann,2 Jinyoung Lee,1 Mee-Hee Kim,1 Ah-Young Han1 1Department of Psychiatry, Gil Medical Center, 2Graduate School of Medicine, Gachon University, Incheon, South Korea Background: Antipsychotic-induced subjective inner restlessness is one of the common and distressing adverse effects associated with antipsychotics; however, its underlying neurobiological basis is not well understood. We examined the relationship between antipsychotic-induced subjective inner restlessness and autonomic neurocardiac function. Methods: Twenty-two schizophrenia patients with antipsychotic-induced subjective restlessness, 28 schizophrenia patients without antipsychotic-induced subjective restlessness, and 28 matched healthy control subjects were evaluated. Assessments of the linear and nonlinear complexity measures of heart rate dynamics were performed. Multivariate analysis of
BACKGROUND: The concept of dose equivalence is important for many purposes. The classical approach published by Davis in 1974 subsequently dominated textbooks for several decades. It was based on the assumption that the mean doses found in flexible-dose trials reflect the average optimum dose which can be used for the calculation of dose equivalence. We are the first to apply the method to second-generation antipsychotics. METHODS: We searched for randomized, double-blind, flexible-dose trials in acutely ill patients with schizophrenia that examined 13 oral second-generation antipsychotics, haloperidol, and chlorpromazine (last search June 2014). We calculated the mean doses of each drug weighted by sample size and divided them by the weighted mean olanzapine dose to obtain olanzapine equivalents. RESULTS: We included 75 studies with 16 555 participants. The doses equivalent to 1 mg/d olanzapine were: amisulpride 38.3 mg/d, aripiprazole 1.4 mg/d, asenapine 0.9 mg/d, chlorpromazine 38.9 mg/d, clozapine
The assessment and treatment of depressive symptoms in schizophrenia remains clinically challenging. Recent advances in psychopharmacology and other treatment approaches elevate the importance of establishing the diagnosis at an early stage. The therapeutic goal is significantly to reduce the excess morbidity and mortality associated with depressive symptoms.. The first steps are to exclude cases of schizoaffective disorder and to treat them appropiately, to treat any medical conditions that are present,and to consider the possibility of substance misuse as a contributing factor. Any evidence that antipsychotic medication is producing akinesia should lead to a reduction in dosage and/or the introduction of anticholinergic medication. Akathisia, with its concomitant feeling of dysphoria, should always be considered in patients describing subjective mood disturbance. The akathisia/dysphoria syndrome, if present, requires active management. Use of an anticholinergic drug is generally effective. ...

DepressionEverybodys mood varies according to events in the world around them. People are happy when they achieve something or saddened when they fail a test or lose something. When they are sad, some people say they are depressed, but the clinical depressions that are seen by doctors differ from the low mood broughton by everyday setbacks. Psychiatrists see a range of more severe mood disturbances and so find it easier to distinguish these from the normal variations of mood seen in the community. General practitioners (GPs) need to be sensitive enough to distinguish emotional reactions to setbacks in life from anxiety syndromes, and clinical depressions. The general idea is that anxiety disorders, depressive episodes, and adjustment reactions are all different entities, but in practice it is not always that clear-cut. Major depression, as defined by psychiatrists, is unfortunately relatively common. What is depression? The term affect refers to ones mood or spirits. Affective ...

No suicides occurred in any of the pediatric trials. There were suicides in the adult trials, but the number was not sufficient to reach any conclusion about drug effect on suicide. It is unknown whether the suicidality risk extends to longer-term use, i.e., beyond several months. However, there is substantial evidence from placebo-controlled maintenance trials in adults with depression that the use of antidepressants can delay the recurrence of depression. All patients being treated with antidepressants for any indication should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, and unusual changes in behavior, especially during the initial few months of a course of drug therapy, or at times of dose changes, either increases or decreases. The following symptoms, anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), hypomania, and mania, have been reported in adult and pediatric ...

of developing Parkinsons than those who did not. This is great news for coffee-lovers who might have a family history with the disease, which is (currently) a progressively degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The major symptoms are movement-related and include shaking, difficulty controlling muscle movements and even difficulty walking. Previous studies indicate that drinking coffee may help to reduce the symptoms of Parkinsons and help those afflicted with the disease to have better control over their movements, but this new research indicates that caffeinated coffee consumption might significantly reduce the risk of developing the disease at all..

Methylxanthines have been the mainstay of pharmacologic treatment of apnea for decades. Adverse effects include tachycardia, emesis, and jitteriness. Both theophylline and caffeine are used, but caffeine citrate is preferred because of its longer half-life, higher therapeutic index, and lack of need for drug-level monitoring. Xanthines have multiple effects on respiration, including increased minute ventilation, improved carbon dioxide sensitivity, decreased periodic breathing, and decreased hypoxic depression of breathing. Their primary mechanism of action is thought to be blockade of inhibitory adenosine A1 receptors, with resultant excitation of respiratory neural output, as well as blockade of excitatory adenosine A2A receptors located on γ-aminobutyric acidergic neurons. Specific polymorphisms in the A1 and A2A adenosine receptor genes have been associated with a higher risk of apnea of prematurity as well as variability in response to xanthine therapy.15 These observations may help ...

Peripheric edema could be caused by various medical conditions as well as pharmacologic agents such as antihypertensives, nonsteroidal antiinflamatory drugs, endocrine agents and immunotherapies. Olanzapine is an atypical antipsychotic that is widely prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder.
