Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium: An acute organic mental disorder induced by cessation or reduction in chronic alcohol consumption. Clinical characteristics include CONFUSION; DELUSIONS; vivid HALLUCINATIONS; TREMOR; agitation; insomnia; and signs of autonomic hyperactivity (e.g., elevated blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils, and diaphoresis). This condition may occasionally be fatal. It was formerly called delirium tremens. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1175)Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures: A condition where seizures occur in association with ethanol abuse (ALCOHOLISM) without other identifiable causes. Seizures usually occur within the first 6-48 hours after the cessation of alcohol intake, but may occur during periods of alcohol intoxication. Single generalized tonic-clonic motor seizures are the most common subtype, however, STATUS EPILEPTICUS may occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1174)Substance Withdrawal Syndrome: Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation.

Chlormethiazole has also been proposed as a neuroprotective agent. The mechanism of its therapeutic activity is not entirely clear, but it does potentiate GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptors response and it may also affect glycine receptors.Alcoholism: A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

Epilepsy classification systems are generally based upon: (1) clinical features of the seizure episodes (e.g., motor seizure), (2) etiology (e.g., post-traumatic), (3) anatomic site of seizure origin (e.g., frontal lobe seizure), (4) tendency to spread to other structures in the brain, and (5) temporal patterns (e.g., nocturnal epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p313)Seizures, Febrile: Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Anticonvulsants: Drugs used to prevent SEIZURES or reduce their severity.Epilepsies, Partial: Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)Epilepsy, Reflex: A subtype of epilepsy characterized by seizures that are consistently provoked by a certain specific stimulus. Auditory, visual, and somatosensory stimuli as well as the acts of writing, reading, eating, and decision making are examples of events or activities that may induce seizure activity in affected individuals. (From Neurol Clin 1994 Feb;12(1):57-8)Epilepsy, Generalized: Recurrent conditions characterized by epileptic seizures which arise diffusely and simultaneously from both hemispheres of the brain. Classification is generally based upon motor manifestations of the seizure (e.g., convulsive, nonconvulsive, akinetic, atonic, etc.) or etiology (e.g., idiopathic, cryptogenic, and symptomatic). (From Mayo Clin Proc, 1996 Apr;71(4):405-14)Pentylenetetrazole: A pharmaceutical agent that displays activity as a central nervous system and respiratory stimulant.

Outpatient detoxification of the addicted or alcoholic patient. (1/71)

Outpatient detoxification of patients with alcohol or other drug addiction is being increasingly undertaken. This type of management is appropriate for patients in stage I or stage II of withdrawal who have no significant comorbid conditions and have a support person willing to monitor their progress. Adequate dosages of appropriate substitute medications are important for successful detoxification. In addition, comorbid psychiatric, personality and medical disorders must be managed, and social and environmental concerns need to be addressed. By providing supportive, nonjudgmental, yet assertive care, the family physician can facilitate the best possible chance for a patient's successful recovery.  (+info)

Life-threatening brain failure and agitation in the intensive care unit. (2/71)

The modern intensive care unit (ICU) has evolved into an area where mortality and morbidity can be reduced by identification of unexpected hemodynamic and ventilatory decompensations before long-term problems result. Because intensive care physicians are caring for an increasingly heterogeneous population of patients, the indications for aggressive monitoring and close titration of care have expanded. Agitated patients are proving difficult to deal with in nonmonitored environments because of the unpredictable consequences of the agitated state on organ systems. The severe agitation state that is associated with ethanol withdrawal and delirium tremens (DT) is examined as a model for evaluating the efficacy of the ICU environment to ensure consistent stabilization of potentially life-threatening agitation and delirium.  (+info)

Animal models of alcohol withdrawal. (3/71)

One diagnostic criterion of alcohol dependence is the appearance of a withdrawal syndrome when alcohol consumption ceases. Researchers have used various animal models, including isolated brain cells, slices of brain tissue, and intact animals, to study the mechanisms and manifestations of withdrawal. Results from these experimental studies have demonstrated that many consequences of withdrawal found in animals resemble those observed in humans. Such signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include enhanced activity of the autonomic nervous system; body posture and motor abnormalities; hyperexcitability of the central nervous system, including sensory hyperreactivity; convulsions; anxiety; and psychological discomfort. Researchers also have used animal models to study the electrophysiological correlates of withdrawal, as well as neurobiological mechanisms underlying alcohol dependence and withdrawal.  (+info)

Alcohol's effects on sleep in alcoholics. (4/71)

Sleep problems, which can have significant clinical and economic consequences, are more common among alcoholics than among nonalcoholics. During both drinking periods and withdrawal, alcoholics commonly experience problems falling asleep and decreased total sleep time. Other measures of sleep are also disturbed. Even alcoholics who have been abstinent for short periods of time (i.e., several weeks) or extended periods of time (i.e., several years) may experience persistent sleep abnormalities. Researchers also found that alcoholics are more likely to suffer from certain sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea. Conversely, sleep problems may predispose some people to developing alcohol problems. Furthermore, sleep problems may increase the risk of relapse among abstinent alcoholics.  (+info)

Alcohol, antidepressants, and circadian rhythms. Human and animal models. (5/71)

Alcohol consumption (both acute and chronic) and alcohol withdrawal have a variety of chronobiological effects in humans and other animals. These effects are widespread, altering the circadian rhythms of numerous physiological, endocrine, and behavioral functions. Thus, some of alcohol's negative health consequences may be related to a disruption of normal physiological timing. Most studies of alcohol's chronobiological effects have been conducted under natural conditions in which environmental stimuli, such as regular cycles of light and darkness, act to coordinate circadian rhythms with the environment and with each other. However, such studies cannot distinguish between effects occurring directly on the circadian pacemaker and those occurring "downstream" from the pacemaker on the physiological control systems. Studies using animals have enabled researchers to begin to examine the effects of alcohol on circadian rhythms under so-called free-running conditions in experimental isolation from potential environmental synchronizers. These studies have provided preliminary evidence that alcohol's chronobiological effects are indeed the result of direct influences on the circadian pacemaker itself. Furthermore, the effects of alcohol on animal circadian rhythms appear similar to the effects seen during administration of antidepressant drugs. Taken together with evidence that the chronobiological effects of alcohol withdrawal in human alcoholics are reminiscent of those described in depressed patients, these observations suggest that alcohol may produce antidepressantlike effects on the circadian pacemaker. One theory suggests that the effects of alcohol on the circadian pacemaker are mediated in part by alterations in serotonin, an important chemical involved in cellular communication within the circadian system. However, other neurochemical systems also are likely to be involved.  (+info)

No association between metabotropic glutamate receptors 7 and 8 (mGlur7 and mGlur8) gene polymorphisms and withdrawal seizures and delirium tremens in alcohol-dependent individuals. (6/71)

- Up-regulation of the glutamatergic neurotransmission from chronic ethanol intoxication may cause a hyperexcitable state during alcohol withdrawal that may lead to seizures and delirium tremens. The aim of our study was to evaluate the association between a history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens and a mGlurR7 (Tyr433Phe); and a mGlurR8 (C2756T) metabotropic glutamate receptor polymorphism in alcoholics compared to controls. A total of 182 patients meeting DSM-IV alcohol dependence criteria and 117 controls, both groups being of German descent, were investigated. mGluR7 and mGluR8 polymorphisms were determined using polymerase chain reaction of lymphocyte DNA. History of alcohol withdrawal-induced delirium tremens and seizures were obtained using the Semi-Structured Assessment of Genetics in Alcoholism (SSAGA). Data were cross-checked with inpatients' clinical files. No significant associations were obtained between both receptor polymorphisms and alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens. The negative results in this study question the role of these polymorphisms in the pathogenesis of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizures and delirium tremens.  (+info)

The effect of chronic ethanol consumption and withdrawal on mu-opioid and dopamine D(1) and D(2) receptor density in Fawn-Hooded rat brain. (7/71)

Previous studies have implicated the dopamine and opioid systems in the induction and maintenance of ethanol consumption. This study investigated, in alcohol-preferring Fawn-Hooded (FH) rats, whether chronic free-choice ethanol consumption and subsequent withdrawal cause alterations in central mu-opioid, dopamine D(1), and D(2) receptor density using autoradiography. FH rats were given a free choice between a 5% ethanol solution and tap water (n = 25) and displayed a mean ethanol consumption of 5.6 g/kg/day. A parallel group of FH rats (n = 5) only had access to tap water. Rats were then withdrawn from ethanol for 0, 1, 2, 5, or 10 days and killed by cervical dislocation and decapitation. Increases in mu-opioid receptor density were observed in the nucleus accumbens and ventral tegmental area upon withdrawal compared with the ethanol naive group. In the lateral amygdala, binding in all withdrawal groups was significantly different from the ethanol naive FH rats, and also from the chronic ethanol rats. An increase in dopamine D(1) receptor density was observed in the substantia nigra, pars reticulata in the 5- and 10-day withdrawal groups compared with ethanol naive. Accumbal dopamine D(2) receptor density (+25-30%) increased in the 10-day withdrawal group compared with both naive and chronic ethanol groups. These findings demonstrate that the opioid and dopamine systems are susceptible to modulation by chronic ethanol consumption and withdrawal in the FH rat. Furthermore, although acute ethanol withdrawal results in modulation of mu-opioid receptors, effects on dopamine receptors are delayed and only become evident 5 to 10 days after withdrawal.  (+info)

Basal and isoproterenol-stimulated cyclic-adenosine monophosphate levels in mouse hippocampus and lymphocytes during alcohol tolerance and withdrawal. (8/71)

AIMS: Basal and isoproterenol-stimulated levels of cyclic-adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) were investigated in the brain (hippocampus) and in the lymphocytes of mice rendered tolerant to, and physically dependent on, ethanol. METHODS: cAMP was measured with radioimmunoassay. Tolerance to, and physical dependence on, ethanol were induced by a 14-day ingestion of ethanol in drinking water. Upon replacing ethanol with water, ethanol withdrawal was precipitated and measured by the intensity of withdrawal-induced hyperexcitability and seizures. RESULTS: Basal (non-stimulated) levels of cAMP - both in the hippocampus and in the lymphocytes - were significantly reduced in the alcohol-drinking tolerant and physically dependent animals, but significantly increased 24 h after the onset of withdrawal. Isoproterenol resulted in a dose-dependent stimulation of cAMP in all groups investigated (control, tolerant/physically dependent, withdrawal), however, the magnitude of isoproterenol-induced net increase was significantly lower in the tolerant, and higher in the ethanol-withdrawn, animals. CONCLUSIONS: The major finding of the present experiments is that there was a significant positive correlation between basal cAMP levels in brain and lymphocytes versus the intensity of withdrawal hyperexcitability in ethanol-addicted mice.  (+info)

Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating. People may also see or hear things other people do not. Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs from which to withdraw. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month. A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment ...

Severe alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) and alcohol withdrawal delirium (AWD) are frequent principal indication/s for admission to intensive care units. Additionally, unanticipated alcohol withdrawal complicates other critical illnesses and peri-operative states. Alcohol intoxication and withdrawal syndrome are characterized by classic symptoms of adrenergic activation, psychiatric agitation including seizures, as well as metabolic and respiratory dysfunction. The majority of patients with severe AWS are effectively managed with combinations of benzodiazepine (BZD) sedatives (e.g. lorazepam) and butyrophenone antipsychotics (e.g. haloperidol) and require intensive care admission for 2-3 days. However, almost 25% of patients with SAWS have a prolonged critical care course, often complicated by respiratory failure and associated with excessive sedation and risk for complications such as ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). AWS is frequently difficult to manage with usual care including ...

It seldom occurs until the abuser has been drinking heavily for at least the past ten years. The syndrome follows within a few days (until a maximum of two weeks) after stopping drinking. The mortality rate for delirium tremens improved from the last century from 37% to 2-7% of patients with the disorder due to advances in intensive care medicine. The etiology of delirium tremens is due to functional changes in the GABA neurotransmitter and NMDA receptors, which lead to unbalanced effects of excitatory transmitters. One of the best descriptions of delirium tremens in literature was given by Charles Jackson in the novel The Lost Weekend (1944), and Mark Twain gave a superb description of the disease with the alcoholic and abusive father in Huckleberry Finn. Edgar Allan Poe probably died because of delirium tremens (even if there is some controversy on this issue), calling out the name Reynolds (perhaps the explorer Jeremiah N. Reynolds) and repeating for hours Lord help my poor soul ...
The main symptoms of delirium tremens are nightmares, agitation, global confusion, disorientation, visual and[9] auditory hallucinations, tactile hallucinations, fever, high blood pressure, heavy sweating, and other signs of autonomic hyperactivity (fast heart rate and high blood pressure). These symptoms may appear suddenly, but typically develop two to three days after the stopping of heavy drinking, being worst on the fourth or fifth day.[10] Also, these "symptoms are characteristically worse at night".[11] In general, DT is considered the most severe manifestation of alcohol withdrawal and occurs 3-10 days following the last drink.[9] Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, or rats. These may be hallucinations, or illusions related to the environment, e.g., patterns on the wallpaper or in the peripheral vision that the patient falsely perceives as a resemblance to the morphology of an insect, and are also associated with tactile ...

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a set of symptoms that can occur following a reduction in alcohol use after a period of excessive use. Symptoms typically include anxiety, shakiness, sweating, vomiting, fast heart rate, and a mild fever. More severe symptoms may include seizures, seeing or hearing things that others do not, and delirium tremens (DTs). Symptoms typically begin around six hours following the last drink, are worst at 24 to 72 hours, and improve by seven days. Alcohol withdrawal may occur in those who are alcohol dependent. This may occur following a planned or unplanned decrease in alcohol intake. The underlying mechanism involves a decreased responsiveness of GABA receptors in the brain. The withdrawal process is typically followed using the Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment of Alcohol Scale, revised (CIWA-Ar). The typical treatment of alcohol withdrawal is with benzodiazepines such as chlordiazepoxide or diazepam. Often the amounts given are based on a persons symptoms. ...
In the management of alcohol withdrawal, a benzodiazepine can reduce psychomotor agitation and, used at an early stage, it may prevent progression to more severe symptoms of withdrawal including convulsions and delirium tremens. For less severe symptoms, the benzodiazepine is given orally either as a fixed regimen of tapering doses or according to withdrawal symptoms as and when they arise (symptom-triggered therapy).. The long-acting benzodiazepines chlordiazepoxide and diazepam are licensed for the management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms; both allow smooth tapering down of the dose.. A benzodiazepine can also be used for managing severe symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and may be of value in managing seizures and the potentially life-threatening condition of delirium tremens (characterised by hallucinations, disorientation, agitation, tremor, severe tachycardia, hypertension, fever, drenching sweats, and fluid and electrolyte disturbances). These symptoms are treated in an in-patient setting ...

Discontinuation of alcohol consumption might not be a good idea always and it can have some dangerous effects. Persons who consume drink frequently or heavily might experience withdrawal symptoms of alcohol if all on a sudden they discontinue the habit of drinking alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms of mild alcohol might cause nervousness, depression, shakiness, clammy skin or alcohol cravings. Other major symptoms are severing vomiting and nausea, seizures and delirium tremens which mean combination of symptoms like agitation, hallucinations and confusion and increase in heart rate. Alcohol withdrawal might be threatening to life. This should be done always under the supervision of a healthcare provider and on many occasions hospitalization becomes necessary.

Excessive consumption of alcohol, both acute and chronic, is one of the everyday reasons for admission to emergency medical services. Seizures are a clinical manifestation of alcohol withdrawal, but can occur outside withdrawal periods and for many reasons. 50% of seizures seen in emergency services are associated with excessive alcohol consumption (1), but almost all other causes of seizures can be aggravated by alcohol consumption , 50 g/d. The study by DOnofrio and colleagues used rigorous methods, but only included patients whose seizures were directly related to alcohol. Alcoholic patients with other causes of seizures (e.g., hypoglycemia, hypomagnesemia, cranial trauma, pre-delirium tremens) were excluded, although these are substantial clinical problems. A key clinical message of this study is that secondary prevention of recurrent seizures by lorazepam is useful for these patients and should be used in emergency services. The reduced rate of readmission for recurrent seizures within 48 ...

The most effective treatment for depressant addiction is complete abstinence. How this is achieved will depend on the type of drug. With barbiturates and benzodiazepines a common approach is to taper the individual off the drug. The drug is not stopped immediately but instead it is given at a reducing rate over time until abstinence is reached. There are guidelines available for how the drug should be reduced. In some cases the doctor may decide that it is better to allow the individual to reduce the dose at their own speed.. Alcohol addiction is also best treated with lifelong abstinence. With this type of depressant the tapering off approach is unlikely to be effective. Alcoholics will tend to spend a lot of time trying to reduce their usage without success. The best approach is to just quit alcohol but this means entering a period of withdrawals. If the individual has been abusing alcohol for a long time they may be at risk of delirium tremens. This means that their alcohol withdrawals will ...

June 20, 2013. Alcohol withdrawal produces a hyperautonomic state that can range in severity from mild tachycardia and tremor to hallucinations, seizures or frank delirium tremens, and death. Signs and symptoms of withdrawal are most likely to reach peak intensity 48 hours after a last drink, but there is wide variation in the onset, severity, and duration of symptoms.

When an alcohol addict stops drinking, he may find very difficult without alcohol. The person may feel very uneasy. This is known as withdrawal. The withdrawal from alcohol differs very much from that of other types of drugs due to the fact that it could be fatal directly. If mismanaged, a healthy alcoholic could die due to the direct withdrawal effects. The production of a neuroinhibitor known as GABA could be very much reduced due to heavy consumption of alcohol. When the consumption of alcohol is stopped abruptly, it leads to a condition where both GABA and alcohol to be in inadequate quantities in the system as a result causes the firing of the synapses in uncontrolled manner. This manifests as convulsions, hallucinations, seizures, shakes and even heart failure. These are together referred as delirium tremens. A medically directed detox can be used to control all these withdrawal problems ...

TEMECULA - Addiction treatment has, for the last 40 years, relied on various medications to enhance safe detoxification. Medications, like benzodiazepines - Valium, Klonipin, Ativan, etc. - allow physicians to slowly help the brain to achieve homeostasis and avoid life-threatening seizures or delirium tremens. Other medications, like Disulfiram or Antabuse, have served to dissuade alcoholics from drinking by creating severe sickness if used in conjunction with alcohol.. More recently, after much resistance from the addiction treatment field, antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc. became acceptable to the addiction industry. Now, medications are emerging like Campral and Naltrexone, with the promise of diminishing cravings. The point is that medications have been a part of "abstinence based" treatment for years. While the field, gradually, accepted these medications; the ultimate goal of treatment programs was abstinence-based outcomes.. The philosophy was reinforced by 12-step programs ...
SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX should be administered with caution in elderly or debilitated patients and those with severe impairment of hepatic, pulmonary, or renal function; myxedema or hypothyroidism, adrenal cortical insufficiency (e.g., Addisons disease); CNS depression or coma; toxic psychoses; prostatic hypertrophy or urethral stricture; acute alcoholism; delirium tremens; or kyphoscoliosis.. The effect of hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics of buprenorphine and naloxone is unknown. Since both drugs are extensively metabolized, the plasma levels will be expected to be higher in patients with moderate and severe hepatic impairment. However, it is not known whether both drugs are affected to the same degree. Therefore, dosage should be adjusted and patients should be watched for symptoms of precipitated opioid withdrawal.. Buprenorphine has been shown to increase intracholedochal pressure, as do other opioids, and thus should be administered with caution to patients with dysfunction of the ...
James quoted the following example from a drunkard, S. H. Hadley: One Tuesday evening, I sat in a saloon in Harlem, a homeless, friendless dying drunkard. I had pawned and sold everything that would bring a drink. I could not sleep unless I was dead drunk. I had not eaten for days, and for four nights preceding I had suffered with delirium tremens or the horrors from midnight until morning. I often said, I will never be a tramp. I will find a home in the bottom of the river. But the Lord so ordered it that when the time did come, I was not able to walk one quarter of the way to the river. As I sat there thinking, I seemed to feel some great and mighty presence. I did not know then what it was. I did learn afterwards that it was Jesus, the sinners friend. I walked up to the bar and pounded it with my fist til I made the glasses rattle. Those who stood by drinking looked on with scornful curiosity. I said I would never take another drink if I died in the street. And so complete was Hadleys ...

Benzodiazepines are safe and effective for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, particularly for the prevention of withdrawal seizures, although their superiority to anticonvulsants has not been demonstrated convincingly. There is no clear benefit of one benzodiazepine over another or of symptom-triggered versus fixed-dose scheduling.
Kindling is a problem that can occur following a number of episodes of withdrawal from alcohol. The severity of a persons withdrawal symptoms may get worse each time they stop drinking, and can cause symptoms such as tremors, agitation and convulsions (seizures).. Alcohol has a suppressing effect on the brain and central nervous system. Research has shown that when alcohol is removed from the body, it activates brain and nerve cells, resulting in excessive excitability (hyperexcitability). This can lead to behavioural symptoms such as seizures.. With each alcohol withdrawal episode, the brain and nervous system becomes more sensitised and the resulting side effects become more pronounced. This kindling effect can also occur after chemical stimulus to the brain or body, such as anti-convulsant medication. This means a persons alcohol withdrawal programme needs to be carefully planned, with close monitoring of its effects.. Read more about kindling in alcohol withdrawal (PDF, 163kb).. ...

This was an amusing and interesting article shown to me by one of our consulting psychiatry faculty - in it, the authors Drs. Resnick and Knoll lay out their approach to determining whether someone might be feigning madness for secondary gain. This is, sadly, something we see very frequently in the emergency department - not so much specifically the faking of psychosis, but more often things like suicidality, which some patients (whose unfortunate lives are such that they would prefer being stuck in the emergency department on an "involuntary" hold to being out in the streets, or often those who were just arrested and are now on their way to jail) will endorse knowing that it results in a cascade of CYA consultations that result in a longer LOS and often a sandwich / sometimes psychotropic medications, or alcohol withdrawal. In the case of arrested patients, sometimes they can avoid a trip to jail by diverting to the hospital which will lead the officer to write them a ticket instead of arrest ...

Introduction The aim of this trial was to compare lorazepam with non-benzodiazepine medications such as pregabalin and tiapride in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS). These drugs were chosen for their inhibitorial effects on the hypersecretion of neurotransmitters usually observed in AWS. Craving reduction and improvement of psychiatric symptoms were the secondary end-points.. Methods One hundred and ninety subjects affected by current alcohol dependence were considered consecutively: 111 were enrolled and divided into three groups of 37 subjects each.

Powerlessness is picking up another drink when every instinct in your heart, mind and body begs you to stop. Powerlessness is drinking again and again and again and again until you pass out. Powerlessness is then waking up to repeat the insanity. Powerlessness is acknowledging to your family and friends that you have a disease that may kill you and may kill someone else but you cannot stop. Its a force that controls who youre with, where you go and what you do.. Powerlessness is waking up and not knowing what happened the night before. Its lying to yourself. Its lying to other people. Its a continual, gnawing, mind numbing fear day after day as you second guess yourself, check yourself and worry about whether someone knows. Do my eyes look okay? Does my breath smell okay? Does this person know? Does that person know? Does everyone think Im okay?. Powerlessness is the dry heaves as you stare down into a vomit filled commode and hope you see no blood.

Alcoholism is a long standing health issue, and there has been ongoing research to seek out drugs that could effectively help to treat alcoholism, acute and long-term. According to an article by Johnson, Swift, Addolorato, Ciraulo, and Myrick (2005), a challenge has been to identify medications that not only reduce the rewarding effects of alcohol, but the dependence, post cessation craving, and the withdrawal craving. Lorazepam and gabapentin have been used for the detoxification of alcohol dependent patients. Lorazepam is a type of benzodiazepine, an antianxiety medication. Gabapentin is a type of anticonvulsant drug originally used to prevent seizures. "Benzodiazepines represent the standard of care for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal" (Myrick, Malcolm, Randall, Boyle, Anton, Becker, & Randall, 2009). In recent studies, gabapentin has shown to be effective and safe (Johnson et. al, 2005). The question remains: which drug is more effective in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal? In an ...

20.66561 75.20064 ADA - An Ohio Northern University student found dead in his off-campus apartment last fall died from alcohol withdrawal syndrome, the Hardin County coroner has determined.. The unusual ruling comes five months after the body of Derek C. Falk, 21, of Harpster, Ohio, was discovered by his roommates in his bedroom on the first day of fall classes.. His death initially baffled investigators who found no evidence of foul play. An autopsy also did not point to any obvious cause of death.. Dr. Lawrence Kuk said yesterday that much research went into his ruling.. "These cases have been documented distinctively by coroners and medical examiners," he said. "In working with them very closely, that was the determination.". He said alcohol withdrawal is similar to withdrawal from any medication, in which symptoms can range from the shakes to hallucinations and seizures.. "Just like with any medication, the withdrawal symptoms can be wide, and unfortunately his were extreme," Dr. Kuk ...

Alcohol abuse is an exceedingly common problem and alcohol-related ED visits are encountered daily across the country. Annually, around 500,000 episodes of acute alcohol withdrawal require treatment. The symptoms typically begin to manifest within hours to days after cessation of alcohol and typically peak at 2 - 3 days. The clinical course of alcohol withdrawal varies widely among patients. Chronic alcohol use leads to down-regulation of GABA receptors and up-regulation of NMDA glutamate receptors. Additionally, GABA receptor expression is suppressed. In the active drinker, this allows patients to maintain a normal level of consciousness despite blood alcohol levels that would incapacitate a nondrinker. Withdrawal is therefore, associated with a decrease in GABAergic activity and an increase in glutaminergic activity. The increase in excitatory activity and loss of inhibitory activity results in the symptom complex of alcohol withdrawal. Symptoms include autonomic hyperactivity, tremor, ...
General Opioid analgesics should be used with caution when combined with CNS depressant drugs, and should be reserved for cases where the benefits of opioid analgesia outweigh the known risks of respiratory depression, altered mental state, and postural hypotension..

Purpose: Benzodiazepines (BDZs) are the drugs of choice to prevent the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS). Various treatment protocols are published and have been shown to be effective in both office-managed and facility-managed treatment of AWS. The aim of this scientific commentary is to demonstrate the differences in the expected exposure to BDZs during AWS treatment using different treatment regimens available in the literature, in patients with or without alcoholic liver cirrhosis.. Methods: Diazepam and lorazepam AWS protocols were examined and reviewed in the literature, and blood plasma levels were examined and compared, respectively.. Results: Considerable variation in the blood levels with the different dosing schedules was found. Because the drugs are metabolized differently, we have also shown that liver disease affects the blood levels of diazepam, but not of lorazepam.. Conclusions: Differences in treatment regimens, the choice of BDZ, as well as the presence of liver ...
Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome is considered by many to be the biggest threat to the recovery of an addict or alcoholic. Unfortunately, education and awareness concerning this serious condition is lacking in the public health sector, and many drug rehab centers do not educate their clients about what to expect with PAWS and how to properly manage its symptoms. These symptoms can be severe yet seemingly unexplainable to the addict. Many will turn to drugs or alcohol again as a result and the cycle of addiction will remain unbroken. However, by educating addicts and alcoholics about what post acute withdrawal syndrome is, how to recognize it and ways to properly manage it, more people will achieve lasting recovery and fewer relapses will devastate the lives of addicts and their families.. Post acute withdrawal syndrome occurs immediately after Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. Acute withdrawal refers to the physiological process of detoxing from drugs or alcohol. This process generally lasts from 5 days ...

Leading Italian studies support the use of γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), not only in the treatment of the alcohol withdrawal syndrome, but also in maintaining alcohol abstinence. GHB gives a better result than naltrexone and disulfiram in maintaining abstinence, and it has a better effect on craving than placebo or disulfiram. The problem is that about 30-40% of alcoholics are non-responders to GHB therapy. In our clinical practice, we speculate that by combining disulfiram with GHB treatment we may be able to achieve a kind of antagonist effect by using the psychological threat of disulfiram (adversative effect) while taking advantage of the anticraving effect of GHB, despite the limitation of its non-blockade effect on alcohol. In this context, to improve the outcome in GHB long-term treated alcoholics, we added disulfiram to GHB in the management of GHB treatment-resistant alcoholics. In this study we compared retention in treatment of 52 patients who were treated with the GHB-disulfiram
Seizures or seizure-like phenomena which are mostly convulsive have been observed during the induction, maintenance and withdrawal phases of propofol administration. The nature and mechanism of this phenomenon are not well understood and several case reports on these phenomena have presented only indirect evidence. We report on a patient who was administered propofol in order to control status epilepticus with success. However, every attempt at propofol withdrawal was followed by convulsive seizure-like activity. Continuous EEG monitoring showed muscle artefacts without any ictal discharges. Based on this finding, the propofol treatment was withdrawn and the seizure-like activity eventually attenuated and resolved. We propose that seizure-like phenomena associated with propofol withdrawal may not be ictal in nature and should not lead to unnecessary resumption of propofol infusion without documentation of an epileptic origin by EEG.. ...
Understandably, research into this topic has thus far focussed on heavy alcohol consumption and chronic alcohol addiction rather than low-level social drinking.. We are far less aware of the potential risks of irregular, light alcohol consumption during pregnancy than, for example, the likelihood of foetal alcohol syndrome in children born to mothers with severe alcohol dependency issues.. As a result, some people suggest that low-level consumption is less of a concern.. For example, a study undertaken by Harvard Medical School in 2012 found that minimal alcohol consumption in the first trimester didnt seem to be linked to low birth weights, premature births, or other pregnancy complications [2].. Likewise, they found that low-to-moderate levels of alcohol intake during pregnancy had no noticeable effect on the executive function (meaning the organising, managing, and memory) of five-year-old children [3].. Of course, despite this medical professionals still continued to recommend abstinence ...
