Meprobamate has been reported to have anticonvulsant actions against petit mal seizures, but not against grand mal seizures (which may be exacerbated). It is used in the treatment of ANXIETY DISORDERS, and also for the short-term management of INSOMNIA but has largely been superseded by the BENZODIAZEPINES. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p603)Analgesics, Opioid: Compounds with activity like OPIATE ALKALOIDS, acting at OPIOID RECEPTORS. Properties include induction of ANALGESIA or NARCOSIS.Acetaminophen: Analgesic antipyretic derivative of acetanilide. It has weak anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a common analgesic, but may cause liver, blood cell, and kidney damage.Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations: A private, voluntary, not-for-profit organization which establishes standards for the operation of health facilities and services, conducts surveys, and awards accreditation.Libraries, Hospital: Information centers primarily serving the needs of hospital medical staff and sometimes also providing patient education and other services.Pain, Postoperative: Pain during the period after surgery.Accreditation: Certification as complying with a standard set by non-governmental organizations, applied for by institutions, programs, and facilities on a voluntary basis.Acute Pain: Intensely discomforting, distressful, or agonizing sensation associated with trauma or disease, with well-defined location, character, and timing.Alcoholism: A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations.

Included here are drugs that directly stimulate muscarinic receptors and drugs that potentiate cholinergic activity, usually by slowing the breakdown of acetylcholine (CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITORS). Drugs that stimulate both sympathetic and parasympathetic postganglionic neurons (GANGLIONIC STIMULANTS) are not included here.Epinephrine: The active sympathomimetic hormone from the ADRENAL MEDULLA. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic VASOCONSTRICTION and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the HEART, and dilates BRONCHI and cerebral vessels. It is used in ASTHMA and CARDIAC FAILURE and to delay absorption of local ANESTHETICS.Acetylcholine: A neurotransmitter found at neuromuscular junctions, autonomic ganglia, parasympathetic effector junctions, a subset of sympathetic effector junctions, and at many sites in the central nervous system.Receptors, Nicotinic: One of the two major classes of cholinergic receptors. Nicotinic receptors were originally distinguished by their preference for NICOTINE over MUSCARINE. They are generally divided into muscle-type and neuronal-type (previously ganglionic) based on pharmacology, and subunit composition of the receptors.Receptors, Cholinergic: Cell surface proteins that bind acetylcholine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Cholinergic receptors are divided into two major classes, muscarinic and nicotinic, based originally on their affinity for nicotine and muscarine. Each group is further subdivided based on pharmacology, location, mode of action, and/or molecular biology.Th2 Cells: Subset of helper-inducer T-lymphocytes which synthesize and secrete the interleukins IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, and IL-10.

Benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome: Find the most comprehensive real-world symptom and treatment data on benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome at PatientsLikeMe. 49 patients with benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome experience fatigue, depressed mood, pain, anxious mood, and insomnia and use Cannabis, Acetaminophen (Paracetamol), Adrafinil, Biofeedback, and Cannabidiol to treat their benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome and its symptoms.
Benzodiazepines are widely used clinically to treat anxiety and insomnia. They also induce muscle relaxation, control epileptic seizures, and can produce amnesia. Moreover, benzodiazepines are often abused after chronic clinical treatment and also for recreational purposes. Within weeks, tolerance to the pharmacological effects can develop as a sign of dependence. In vulnerable individuals with compulsive drug use, addiction will be diagnosed. Here we review recent observations from animal models regarding the cellular and molecular basis that might underlie the addictive properties of benzodiazepines. These data reveal how benzodiazepines, acting through specific GABA(A) receptor subtypes, activate midbrain dopamine neurons, and how this could hijack the mesolimbic reward system. Such findings have important implications for the future design of benzodiazepines with reduced or even absent addiction liability ...
Benzodiazepine use disorder, also called misuse or abuse,[1] is the use of benzodiazepines without a prescription, often for recreational purposes, which poses risks of dependence, withdrawal and other long-term effects.[2][3] Benzodiazepines are one of the more common prescription drugs used recreationally. When used recreationally benzodiazepines are usually administered orally but sometimes they are taken intranasally or intravenously. Recreational use produces effects similar to alcohol intoxication.[3][4] In tests in pentobarbital trained rhesus monkeys benzodiazepines produced effects similar to barbiturates.[5] In a 1991 study, triazolam had the highest self-administration rate in cocaine trained baboons, among the five benzodiazepines examined: alprazolam, bromazepam, chlordiazepoxide, lorazepam, triazolam.[6] A 1985 study found that triazolam and temazepam maintained higher rates of self-injection than a variety of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Second-generation antipsychotic medications in the treatment of mood disorders. T2 - Focus on aripiprazole. AU - Buckley, Peter F.. PY - 2005/1/1. Y1 - 2005/1/1. N2 - Second-generation antipsychotic medications offer a broader range of therapeutic efficacies than first-generation agents. Consequently, our field has witnessed a rapid expansion of the use of second-generation antipsychotic drugs for several conditions beyond psychosis. The use of second-generation antipsychotic medications has been most pronounced in mood disorders, especially in bipolar disorders. Information about the agents clozapine, risperidone, olanzapine, quetiapine, ziprasidone and aripiprazole in terms of their efficacy and tolerability in bipolar disorder is now available. Aripiprazole, a new agent whose proposed mechanism(s) of action differs from that of other agents, has been shown in placebo-controlled comparative trials in bipolar patients to be an effective and well tolerated treatment option for ...
AIMS: To describe alprazolam poisoning and the relative toxicity of alprazolam compared with other benzodiazepines. METHODS: A database of consecutive poisoning admissions to a regional toxicology service was searched to identify consecutive benzodiazepine deliberate self poisonings, which were coded as alprazolam, diazepam or other benzodiazepine. Major outcomes used were length of stay (LOS), intensive care (ICU) admission, coma (GCS > 9), flumazenil administration and requirement for mechanical ventilation. Prescription data were obtained for benzodiazepines for the study period. RESULTS: There were 2063 single benzodiazepine overdose admissions: 131 alprazolam overdoses, 823 diazepam overdoses and 1109 other benzodiazepine overdoses. The median LOS for alprazolam overdoses was 19 h which was 1.27 (95% CI 1.04, 1.54) times longer compared with other benzodiazepines by multiple linear regression. For patients with alprazolam overdoses, 22% were admitted to ...
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders when used in conjunction with benzodiazepine pharmacotherapy and when used as a monotherapy. Patients using CBT alone have dropout rates similar to or lower than those patients undergoing other forms of therapy, including benzodiazepines. CBT also works well with patients who do not respond adequately to pharmacotherapy. Combined CBT and benzodiazepine treatment has additive effects when compared with benzodiazepine monotherapy; however, patients receiving combined therapy who subsequently discontinue benzodiazepine treatment experience a loss of efficacy compared with CBT and placebo, perhaps due to fear extinction being context dependent. To avoid this loss of efficacy, CBT may be administered alone or as a bridge between benzodiazepine use and discontinuation during a medication taper. The case report upon which this supplement is based questions the value of CBT for patients experiencing cognitive ...

Antipsychotics are the most important treatment for schizophrenia. However, antipsychotics, particularly olanzapine and clozapine, are associated with severe weight gain/obesity side-effects. Although numerous studies have been carried out to identify the exact mechanisms of antipsychotic-induced weight gain, it is still important to consider other pathways. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress signaling and its associated inflammation pathway is one of the most important pathways involved in regulation of energy balance. In the present study, we examined the role of hypothalamic protein kinase R like endoplasmic reticulum kinase- eukaryotic initiation factor 2α (PERK-eIF2α) signaling and the inflammatory IkappaB kinase β- nuclear factor kappa B (IKKβ-NFκB) signaling pathway in olanzapine-induced weight gain in female rats. In this study, we found that olanzapine significantly activated PERK-eIF2α and IKKβ-NFκB signaling in SH-SY5Y cells in a dose-dependent manner. Olanzapine ...

OBJECTIVE: The present study was designed to (1) estimate the frequency of benzodiazepine use in psychiatric practice, (2) investigate factors associated with use, (3) establish whether a relationship exists between benzodiazepine dose and length of use, and (4) investigate factors associated with time to discontinuation. METHODS: This study was conducted in South Verona, Italy. All individuals who were exposed to benzodiazepines during 2005 were extracted from the local Psychiatric Case Register, and the longitudinal history of benzodiazepine exposure was retrospectively described. RESULTS: In 2005, a total of 1,771 individuals were in contact with at least one of the psychiatric facilities of the South Verona catchment area. Of these, 535 were benzodiazepine users, yielding a frequency of use of 30.2% [95% confidence intervals (CI) 28.0, 32.4]. In multivariate logistic regression analysis, lower level of education, diagnosis of affective illness, longer ...
Our findings demonstrate an integral role of the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in interleukin 6-mediated cardiac contractile dysfunction and inotrope insensitivity. Dysregulation of the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway in meningococcal septicemia suggests that this pathway may be an important target for novel therapies to reverse myocardial dysfunction in patients with meningococcal septic shock who are not responsive to inotropic support.. ...
Whole-cell voltage clamp measurements were applied to isolated myocytes to examine the effect of sevoflurane on separated calcium and potassium currents, which play key roles in myocardial excitation-contraction coupling. According to an established protocol, guinea pig ventricular myocytes were isolated enzymatically. [24] English Shorthair guinea pigs (weighing approximately 300 g) were anesthetized with 50 mg/kg sodium pentobarbital according to the guidelines of the University of Virginia Animal Research Committee. The heart was quickly excised and perfused (30 mmHg perfusion pressure) using a Langendorff perfusion system. All solutions were passed through a 0.2-micro meter filter, equilibrated with 95% O2and 5% CO2to pH 7.4 and maintained at 37 degrees C. The heart was perfused for 5 min with solution identical to the modified Tyrode solution, except for the omission of calcium and addition of 5 mM pyruvic acid. The calcium-free buffer was then supplemented with 25 micro Meter CaCl2, ...

A growing number of observational studies have shown the critical role of potentially inappropriate medications for increasing the risk of cognitive impairment. In a linked paper, Billioti de Gage and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g5205) extend the pharmacoepidemiological research on the adverse cognitive effects of benzodiazepines with an investigation of their link with Alzheimers disease.1 Their results suggest that long term exposure to benzodiazepines might be a modifiable risk factor for this condition.. The authors conducted a nested case-control study of about 2000 older members of a public drug plan in the province of Quebec, Canada. They observed a cumulative dose-effect association between exposure to benzodiazepines (at least 90 days) and risk of developing Alzheimers disease and found that exposure lasting more than 180 days was associated with a nearly twofold increase in risk. In further analyses, they showed that longer acting ...
Long term use of benzodiazepines which have a similar effect on the brain as alcohol and are also associated with depression.[23] Major depressive disorder can also develop as a result of chronic use of benzodiazepines or as part of a protracted withdrawal syndrome. Benzodiazepines are a class of medication which are commonly used to treat insomnia, anxiety and muscular spasms. As with alcohol, the effects of benzodiazepine on neurochemistry, such as decreased levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, are believed to be responsible for the increased depression.[24][25][26][27] Major depressive disorder may also occur as part of the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome.[28][29][30] In a long-term follow-up study of patients dependent on benzodiazepines, it was found that 10 people (20%) had taken drug overdoses while on chronic benzodiazepine medication despite only two people ever having had any pre-existing depressive disorder. A year after a ...
Benzodiazepines and cyclobenzaprine are used to treat muscle spasms. Benzodiazepines are also used to treat insomnia, seizures, anxiety disorders, nervousness, panic disorders, alcohol withdrawal, status epilepticus, premenstrual syndrome, and as sedation during surgery. Benzodiazepines are central nervous system depressants that cause drowsiness and cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant.
Objective: A recent meta-analysis has indicated that, in patients with dementia, the use of atypical antipsychotics is associated with an excess mortality. Later observational studies have suggested that conventional antipsychotics may pose an even greater risk of death. None of these studies could evaluate the risk associated with single antipsychotics nor could they provide any conclusive evidence concerning the risk among nursing home residents. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to compare the risk of death associated with atypical and conventional antipsychotics in a large population of nursing home residents with dementia.. Method: We identified 6,524 new users of atypical antipsychotics and 3,205 new users of conventional antipsychotics living in 1,581 Medicare- or Medicaid-certified nursing homes in 5 US states during the years 1998-2000. The outcome measure was all-cause mortality, which was determined during 6-months of follow-up.. Results: After adjusting for potential ...
The advent of palliative care played an important role in widening the appropriate use of opioid analgesics. The relatively high level of benzodiazepine prescriptions in our study suggests that the same is happening here. Protocols for the use of benzodiazepines in other healthcare settings emphasize the need for short courses, low doses and the avoidance of as required prescriptions. There is little evidence for long term efficacy, but with a median stay under the hospices care of just over three months, relatively few of our patient group could be said to have long term benzodiazepine use unless they had been taking this class of drug prior to hospice referral. Indeed, the fact that half of all benzodiazepine use was within the last three weeks of life and by a parenteral route implies that the patient group under consideration here is different from those with which usual guidance for benzodiazepine use is concerned. The relevance of benzodiazepine protocols to palliative care settings ...
Barbone and colleagues observed a significant increase in risk for motor vehicle crashes with use of benzodiazepines and zopiclone in this case-crossover study. A dose-response relation was seen. Analysis according to drug elimination half-life showed that anxiolytics with long half-lives were specifically associated with an increased occurrence of road traffic crashes. Surprisingly, risk associated with benzodiazepine use was highest among drivers , 30 years of age and decreased with advancing age. Among persons ≥ 65 years of age, no increase in risk was found. These results conflict with those of 2 epidemiologic studies that focused on the geriatric population (1, 2). In view of the widespread concerns about the harmful effects of long half-life benzodiazepines on the elderly, the results reported by Barbone and colleagues seem incongruous. There are several possible explanations for these findings, including insufficient statistical power to detect an increased risk in ...

Two main conclusions can be drawn from this review. Firstly, taking the trial results at face value, atypical antipsychotics are slightly more effective and better tolerated in patients with schizophrenia. Atypical antipsychotics also have a significantly lower risk of causing extrapyramidal side effects. We found no reliable evidence of differential effects between atypical antipsychotics and we have therefore grouped them together in this discussion. Secondly, when we controlled for the higher than recommended dose of conventional antipsychotics used in some trials, a modest advantage in favour of atypical antipsychotics in terms of extrapyramidal side effects remains, but the differences in efficacy and overall tolerability disappear, suggesting that many of the perceived benefits of atypical antipsychotics are really due to excessive doses of the comparator drug used in the trials. Taking these points into account, we think it inappropriate to advocate the first line use of a new drug ...
Benzodiazepines are drugs which act upon the GABA(A) receptor, and produce a general set of effects which vary by compound, mostly being sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant. The first benzodiazepine, Chlordiazepoxide (Librium), was discovered accidentally by Leo Sternbach in 1955, and made available in 1960 by Hoffmann-La Roche, which has also marketed diazepam (Valium) since 1963. = Dosage = {, class="wikitable sortable" ,+Comparison of benzodiazepines !

High-potency benzodiazepines combat anxiety and have few side effects other than drowsiness. Because people can get used to them and may need higher and higher doses to get the same effect, benzodiazepines are generally prescribed for short periods of time, especially for people who have abused drugs or alcohol and who become dependent on medication easily. One exception to this rule is people with panic disorder, who can take benzodiazepines for up to a year without harm.. Clonazepam (Klonopin®) is used for social phobia and GAD, lorazepam (Ativan®) is helpful for panic disorder, and alprazolam (Xanax®) is useful for both panic disorder and GAD.. Some people experience withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking benzodiazepines abruptly instead of tapering off, and anxiety can return once the medication is stopped. These potential problems have led some physicians to shy away from using these drugs or to use them in inadequate doses.. Buspirone ...
Effect of transient cerebral ischemia on gamma-aminobutyric acidA receptor alpha 1-subunit-immunoreactive interneurons in the gerbil CA1 hippocampus.
The cardiovascular response to septic shock is peripheral vasodilatation resulting in systemic hypotension, hyporesponsiveness to vasopressors, and reduced systemic vascular resistance. Cytokines and endotoxins from Gram-negative microorganisms may lead to myocardial depression and ventricular dilatation.21 A circulating myocardial depressant substance was first proposed ,50 years ago.22 Later, it was shown that tumor necrosis factor-α and interleukin-1 are cardiodepressant.23 Myocardial depression has been defined by different measures of cardiac performance such as cardiac output, depressed ejection fraction, or ventricular dilation.24 Several studies have shown that laboratory markers such as cyclic guanosine monophosphate, ANP, endothelin, or the cardiac-specific protein TNI may reflect cardiac dysfunction or myocardial cell damage in severe sepsis.14,15,25. The present study ...
The benzodiazepines are a class of chemically related central nervous depressants used as sedative-hypnotics to treat sleep disorders, anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, and seizure disorders. The drug class in low doses can cause sedation, drowsiness, blurred vision, fatigue, mental depression, and loss of coördination. In higher doses, or used chronically, they can cause confusion, slurred speech, hypotension, and diminished reflexes. Chronic use may produce a physical dependence and a withdrawal syndrome which can last for weeks. Urine should be tested for benzodiazepines in suspected overdose cases, or as part of an abused drug program. These drugs have a relatively low potential for abuse.1 They are, however, frequently found with other drugs in emergency room drug tests. Immunoassay procedures detect a broad range of drugs and their metabolites in this class using either oxazepam or nordiazepam as positive controls. Positive results (usually ,300 ng/mL of ...
The major finding of this study is that inverse agonism at the h5-HT2C-INI receptor is not a reliable predictor of atypical antipsychotic activity. Additionally, several potent 5-HT2-family antagonists with equivocal (e.g., M100907, ritanserin) or no (isoclozapine, mianserin, amitriptyline) antipsychotic activity were found to be potent and effective inverse agonists at the h5-HT2C-INI receptor. These results indicate that inverse agonist activity at the h5-HT2C-INI receptor does not, by itself, reliably distinguish between typical and atypical antipsychotic drugs.. Several prior studies have described inverse agonist actions of typical and atypical antipsychotic drugs at 5-HT2C and 5-HT2A receptors (Barker et al., 1994; Westphal and Sanders-Bush, 1994; Labrecque et al., 1995; Egan et al., 1998;Herrick-Davis et al., 2000). Thus, Egan et al. (1998) were the first to systematically evaluate a large series of typical and atypical antipsychotic drugs for their inverse agonist actions at h5-HT2A ...
Flurazepam (marketed under the brand names Dalmane and Dalmadorm) is a drug which is a benzodiazepine derivative. It possesses anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, hypnotic, sedative and skeletal muscle relaxant properties. It produces a metabolite with a long half-life, which may stay in the bloodstream for days. Flurazepam was initially patented in 1963 and went on sale in the United States in 1970. Flurazepam is officially indicated for mild to moderate insomnia and as such it is used for short-term treatment of patients with mild to moderate insomnia such as difficulty falling asleep, frequent awakening, early awakenings or a combination of each. Flurazepam is a long-acting benzodiazepine and is sometimes used in patients who have difficulty in maintaining sleep. Flurazepam is still available in the United States. Intermediate half-life benzodiazepines are also useful for patients with difficulty in maintaining sleep (e.g. loprazolam, lormetazepam, temazepam). The most common adverse effects are ...
Feedback on other responses. i. Ask Ali to try harder (and work through the pain) to cut out the benzodiazepines. It is important to understand Alis challenge. The best way forward would be to discuss a mutually agreed plan for withdrawing the benzodiazepines as it is more likely to be effective through better education and commitment from the patient. It is more difficult to manage withdrawal in an individual on a short-acting or intermediate-acting benzodiazepine such as lorazepam.. iii. Ask Ali to cut out the middle dose and just continue on lorazepam 2.5 mg midmorning and 2.5 mg at bedtime. Dose reduction needs to gradual (reduced by around one-eighth of the daily dose each fortnight) to avoid serious withdrawal effects such as convulsions and psychosis. The benzodiazepine first needs to be switched to the equivalent dose of a longer-acting one such as diazepam.. v. Substitute the benzodiazepine for another class of anxiolytics. The benzodiazepine should not be replaced ...

Benzodiazepines (e.g., Valium (diazepam) and Librium (chlordiazepoxide)) are commonly prescribed minor tranquilizers, sedatives, and anticonvulsants. They are a large class of compounds and also undergo extensive metabolism, with glucuronida-tion often being the last step in the biotransformation. Most immunoassays for benzodiazepines involve antibodies raised against a common benzodiazepine metabolite, oxazepam. However, because most oxazepam excreted into the urine is actually oxazepam glucuronide, the immunoassay does not always perform well. The antibody has less reactivity with the oxazepam glucuronide, the actual metabolite present in urine. Some research has shown that pretreatment of the urine specimen with glucuronidase, which liberates the metabolite from binding with glucuronide, improves the sensitivity of the method..

A non-selective beta-adrenergic antagonist … A non-selective beta-adrenergic antagonist with a long half-life, used in cardiovascular disease to treat arrhythmias, angina pectoris, and hypertension. Nadolol is also used for migraine disorders and for tremor. (PubChem) Pharmacology: Nadolol is a nonselective beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist with a long half-life, and is structurally similar to propranolol. Clinical pharmacology studies have demonstrated beta-blocking activity by showing (1) reduction in heart rate and cardiac output at rest and on exercise, (2) reduction of systolic and diastolic blood pressure at rest and on exercise, (3) inhibition of isoproterenol-induced tachycardia, and (4) reduction of reflex orthostatic tachycardia. Nadolol has no intrinsic sympathomimetic activity and, unlike some other beta-adrenergic blocking agents, nadolol has little direct myocardial depressant activity and does not have an anesthetic-like membrane-stabilizing action. ...

Based on this trial, substantial increases in HDL levels with evacetrapib monotherapy were witnessed that seem greater than other standard therapies, (i.e. niacin, fibric acids).1 This is notable as mean baseline HDL levels of these patients were not low (55.1mg/dL). Patients with lower baseline HDL or higher baseline TG seemed to have greater changes with evacetrapib.2 The safety profile of evacetrapib was similar to placebo, though larger Phase III trials are warranted to better evaluate the adverse drug reaction profile, especially as the previous CETP inhibitor never made it to market due to serious adverse outcomes. It is also important to note that other CETP inhibitors are in development, so more information regarding this class of medications is expected. As the LDL reductions with evacetrapib monotherapy are modest compared to our current standards of therapy, it is likely that this medication could be utilized more as adjunctive therapy to achieve improvements in HDL levels once LDL ...
The abuse and misuse of benzodiazepines and zolpidem are widespread internationally. Their illegal distribution has raised their abuse to a serious level, and they are often misused in crimes. In the present study, 18 cases involving the illegal use of benzodiazepines and/or zolpidem were proved by hair analysis. The drugs were extracted from the hair samples using methanol and analyzed using LC-MS/MS. The cases were classified according to case history: five of illegal use in medical staff, eight through inappropriate or illegal distribution, and five related to drug-facilitated crimes. Among the 18 cases, zolpidem was identified in eight, alprazolam in seven, diazepam in six, and clonazepam in four. The drug concentrations ranged from ,LOQ to 6.47 ng/mg. Due to the ready supply and potential for criminal misuse of these drugs, programs for prescription drug monitoring and supervision of those handling these drugs are both recommended. ...
Side effects of lormetazepam are similar to those of other hypnotic benzodiazepines and can for the most part be regarded as a class effect.[5] In a sleep study, 1 mg lormetazepam increased total sleep time, reduced wakefulness, but did not alter REM sleep. However, at 2 mg doses, there were significant increases in stage 3 sleep and reductions in REM sleep. Rebound effects have been reported after chronic use including rebound REM.[6] In one clinical trial with patients who had prior experience with older hypnotics temazepam and nitrazepam, most preferred lormetazepam due to less heavy sedation, amnesia, and residual effects.[7] Some side effects, including drowsiness, amnesia, and respiratory depression, are increased when lormetazepam is combined with other drugs with similar effects e.g. alcohol and nonbenzodiazepine drugs. Although lormetazepam has been associated with adversely affecting immediate and delayed recall memory functions,[8] studies have shown that lormetazepams amnesic ...
Clinical Effects: BENZODIAZEPINES USES: Benzodiazepines are used as anxiolytics, muscle relaxants, procedural sedation agents, and sedative-hypnotics to treat withdrawal states (ie, ethanol, benzodiazepines) and many hyperadrenergic/stimulated conditions (eg, seizures, serotonin syndrome, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, sympathomimetic overdose, psychiatric conditions). PHARMACOLOGY: They act on the benzodiazepine binding site on the chloride channel of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA),…

This study is a 16-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of olanzapine in adult outpatients with AN. 160 individuals with AN, ages , 18, will be randomly assigned to receive olanzapine or placebo for 16 weeks together with a medication management treatment. Primary outcomes will include weight gain as well as psychological symptoms known to be associated with AN, including obsessionality, mood, and anxiety.. This project is based on evidence from a recently completed 8-week pilot study comparing the efficacy of olanzapine to placebo in outpatients with AN (PI: Evelyn Attia, MD), as well as a recently published 12-week trial of olanzapine vs placebo (Bissada et al, Am J Psychiatry, 2007) in which outpatient treatment with olanzapine was associated with weight improvement, improved psychological status, and no untoward metabolic effects among low-weight patients.. The investigators hypothesize that among underweight adult outpatients with AN receiving olanzapine vs. placebo, ...
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 ...
Objectives Although there have been important advances in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), many patients fail to respond to first-line pharmacotherapy. Limited evidence suggests that second generation antipsychotics may have a role to play as monotherapy in PTSD. Methods We undertook a randomized, placebo-controlled study using flexible-dose olanzapine monotherapy for 8 weeks in 28 adult male and female participants (mean age: 40.75 ± 11.59 years) with non-combat related chronic PTSD. Data were analysed with repeated measures analysis of variance, using an intention to treat, last observation carried forward approach. Results The olanzapine group (n = 14) demonstrated significantly greater improvement on the Clinician Administered PTSD Scale from baseline to endpoint than the placebo group (n = 14) (F = 5.71, p = 0.018). Olanzapine was generally well tolerated, with no serious adverse events recorded. Substantial weight gain (6-10 kg) was, however, reported in 6/14 ...
Your what?: Oh yes, your memory. I have 800 outpatients. Some are on that dose. I am a psychiatrist and am also a boarded sleep medicine specialist. I have been in my current practice for 21 years. I worry more about ambien, (zolpidem) because of the number of people I have seen develop amnesia on it. I have never seen anyone develop amnesia on temazepam, even at 60 mg doses. 20% of my psych patients have sleep apnea, so I am vigilant about sleeping issues in my practice. I dont think that anyone is comfortable having people on long-term benzodiazepines. However, many people simply need long-term benzodiazepine management. You do have a lot of years ahead of you. Since we really dont know the long-term liability of benzodiazepine use on the memory, it is always best whenever possible to convert to something that might be less of concern. Trazodone comes to mind as a potentially good option. Seroquel is a good sleep drug but it carries more liability long-term then temazepam. Discuss other ...
Toxicology Question of the Week. October 7, 2019. Do Urine Drug Screens Reliably Detect Benzodiazepine Ingestion?. Widespread use of benzodiazepines causes a significant increase in Emergency Room visits due to abuse and misuse. The Tennessee Poison Center hotline received more than 1,100 calls regarding benzo exposures in the last fiscal year. Accurate testing and results are vital to enable clinicians to better diagnose and manage these exposures.. Not all benzos will be detected on a standard urine drug screen (UDS). Some immunoassays may be poorly sensitive for certain drugs (e.g. lorazepam, alprazolam, and clonazepam) or may not detect those present at lower concentrations. Many benzodiazepines are metabolized in the liver and parent drugs can be undetectable in the urine. Temazepam, nordiazepam, and oxazepam are metabolites of diazepam, but can be parent drugs in their own right. It can be difficult to tell what drug was ingested, if the only drug present in the UDS is ...
Acute treatment of panic, or really any type of acute anxiety, usually involves the use of fast acting medications. These typically have short half lives, and rapid times to onset. The most common medications used for acute treatment of anxiety are the benzodiazepines. They all work through potentiation of GABA action at GABA-A receptors in the CNS. Because of their indirect effect on the GABA receptor, the benzodiazepines are relatively safe compared with other sedatives.. There are three classes of benzodiazepines: 2-keto, 3-hydroxy, and triazolo. 2-keto drugs include chlordiazepoxide, diazepam, prazepam, clorazepate, halazepam, clonazepam, and flurazepam. Many of these are pro-drugs; they are oxidized in the liver (usually to active metabolites). They therefore tend to have long half-lives and are more susceptible to drug interactions and age effects. The 3-hydroxy drugs include oxazepam, lorazepam, and temezepam. These are conjugated in the liver (to ...
A decision-tree simulation model is used to examine the costs associated with olanzapine versus haloperidol in the treatment of patients with schizophrenia in the UK. Parameter values and outcome scores were derived mainly from an international clinical trial. Resource consequences were examined on the basis of assumed service delivery and actual unit costs specific to the UK. While olanzapine is more expensive to prescribe than haloperidol, it generates savings by reducing utilisation of medical services. As a result, a comparison of the 2 drugs is approximately cost neutral. Model uncertainties are examined using extensive sensitivity analysis; in most scenarios, cost-neutral results are maintained. Olanzapine is more effective than haloperidol as measured by Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale scores and non-relapse rates. With such gains in effectiveness and near equivalence in terms of costs, olanzapine, in comparison with haloperidol, may represent a cost-effective treatment option.. ...
AbstractBackground Many adolescents enter foster care with high body mass index (BMI), and patterns of treatment further exacerbate the risk of morbid obesity. A principal risk factor for such exacerbation is the use of second generation antipsychotics (SGAs). We examine the association between receiving a morbid obesity diagnosis and SGA prescriptions among adolescents in foster care. Methods We analyzed claims from 36 states Medicaid Analytic Extract (MAX) files for 2000 through 2003. Obesity diagnoses were ascertained through a primary or secondary diagnosis claim of morbid obesity.
The review currently includes nine randomised controlled trials (RCTs) with 3361 participants. The overall rate of premature study discontinuation was very high (59.1%). Data for the comparisons of ziprasidone with amisulpride, clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine and risperidone were available. Ziprasidone was a less acceptable treatment than olanzapine (leaving the studies early for any reason: 5 RCTs, n=1937, RR 1.26 CI 1.18 to 1.35, NNH 7 CI 5 to 10) and risperidone (3 RCTs, n=1029, RR 1.11 CI 1.02 to 1.20, NNH 14 CI 8 to 50), but not than the other second generation antipsychotic drugs. Ziprasidone was less efficacious than amisulpride (leaving the study early due to inefficacy: 1 RCT, n=123, RR 4.72 CI 1.06 to 20.98, NNH 8 CI 5 to 50) olanzapine (PANSS total score: 4 RCTs, n=1291, MD 8.32 CI 5.64 to 10.99) and risperidone (PANSS total score: 3 RCTs, n=1016, MD 3.91 CI 0.27 to 7.55). Based on limited data there were no significant differences in tolerability between ziprasidone and amisulpride ...
Several classes of medications are used in the treatment of insomnia. They include the benzodiazepines, non-benzodiazepine hypnotics, antidepressants, and over-the-counter medications. There are six benzodiazepines that are specifically marketed as hypnotics in the United States or in Canada: flurazepam, temazepam, triazolam, estazolam, quazepam, and (in Canada only) nitrazepam. Several other benzodiazepines (e.g., lorazepam, clonazepam, oxazepam),… Read More ». ...

Pimozide is a high potency antipsychotic medication which has been used in many countries since the 1970s for the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychoses. In the US, it was licensed in the past decade as an "orphan drug" for the treatment of Tourettes syndrome.. Sultana and McMonagle have identified randomised controlled trials of pimozide for the treatment of schizophrenia. Not surprisingly, pimozide was found to be more effective than placebo for preventing relapse and was similar to other typical antipsychotic drugs in efficacy and side effect profile.. Several unanswered questions remain. It has been claimed that pimozide is more effective than other typical antipsychotic drugs for treating negative symptoms of schizophrenia.1 None of the studies included in the review specifically reported on negative symptoms as an outcome, so the review was unable to support or refute this claim. In addition, the efficacy of pimozide relative to the newer atypical antipsychotic drugs is unknown ...
Risperidone and olanzapine are atypical neuroleptics marketed for the treatment of psychotic disorders in adults. These medicines are called atypical neuroleptics because of their unique pharmacological profile, which include both D2 and 5HT2 antagonistic effects. The combined dopaminergic and serotonergic activity seems to be associated not only with antipsychotic effects, but also with mood stabilizing, mood elevating and tardive dyskinesia. The anti-climactic effects of this class of drugs led to the recent FDA approval of olanzapine as monotherapy for adult bipolar disorder.. The study will consist of 8 week, open-label treatment period with random assignment to two determined treatment arms, risperidone or olanzapine. We plan to enroll 5 subjects for each arm. During the 8 weeks of treatment, patients will be seen at weekly intervals and receive study medication. At each week, measures of safety and efficacy will be obtained. Two teams of clinicians will see the patient at each visit. Team ...

Disturbance in sleep quality is a symptom of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Bipolar Disorder (BD) and thus improving quality of sleep is an important aspect of successful treatment. Here, a prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study examined the effect of olanzapine (an atypical antipsychotic) augmentation therapy on sleep architecture, specifically slow wave sleep (SWS), in the treatment of depression. The effect of olanzapine augmentation therapy on other features of sleep (e.g., sleep continuity) and depression (e.g., illness severity and cognitive function) were also determined. Patients currently experiencing a major depressive episode and who were on a stable medication were included. Sleep architecture was measured by overnight ambulatory polysomnography. Illness severity was determined using the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS). Cognitive function was examined using Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB): Spatial Working Memory
Using medications to treat mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, is one of the most preferred treatment options in the United States. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), benzodiazepines, such as alprazolam, clonazepam, diazepam, and lorazepam are frequently used medications for a short-term management of anxiety.. Benzodiazepines are a class of psychoactive drugs that work on the central nervous system (CNS) and therefore, they can be effectively used to treat an array of medical conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, alcohol withdrawal, seizures, restless leg syndrome, and so on. Highly effective in promoting relaxing effects, these drugs are being widely used for their sedative, hypnotic, antianxiety, anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant properties.. However, using these drugs over a long period can lead to increased dependence and tolerance, which eventually leads to an addiction to them. When taken in combination with ...
The new Metabolic Monitoring for Children and Adolescents on Antipsychotics (APM) HEDIS measure calculates the percentage of children ages 1-17 who have had two or more antipsychotic prescriptions filled and at least one metabolic test for blood glucose HbA1c, and at least one test for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LCL-C) or total cholesterol each year. Examples of first and second-generation antipsychotic medications included in this measure are chlorpromazine, aripiprazole, clozapine, olanzapine, risperidone, haloperidol, and trifluoperazine. As you know, while antipsychotic medications are effective in treating certain mental illnesses in children, their side effects can lead to or exacerbate other health problems. Children taking antipsychotics are prone to significant weight gain and obesity-related complications such as cardiovascular issues, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and insulin-resistant type 2 diabetes. Consequently, it is important that patients on antipsychotic ...
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
5.1 Exposure data. Oxazepam is a benzodiazepine used extensively since the 1960s for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia and in the control of symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. It is a metabolite of diazepam, prazepam and temazepam, among the benzodiazepines considered in this volume.. 5.2 Human carcinogenicity data. In one case-control study evaluating benzodiazepine use, subjects using oxazepam were included, but were too few to analyse as a separate category.. 5.3 Animal carcinogenicity data. Oxazepam was tested for carcinogenicity in three experiments in two strains of mice by oral administration in the diet. Significant increases in the incidence of benign and malignant liver tumours were found in two of the studies. The incidence of an uncommon malignant liver tumour, hepatoblastoma, was also increased in one strain of mice. In the third study, an increased incidence of liver adenomas was found. In one of the studies, a small increase in the incidence of thyroid gland adenomas was ...
Benzodiazepines are used as first-line anticonvulsants for virtually all xenobiotic induced seizures; as sedatives of choice for most forms of xenobiotic induced agitation; as muscle relaxants for diverse disorders such as serotonin toxicity, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, and poisoning from strychnine or black widow spider envenomation; and as -sedatives for withdrawal from ethanol, γ-hydroxybutyric acid, and other -sedatives. Additional distinct indications for benzodiazepines can be found in overdose from chloroquine and possibly other quinine derived antimalarials, and in patients with cocaine associated myocardial ischemia and infarction. This Antidotes in Depth provides a summary of the clinical pharmacology of benzodiazepines in order to provide the reader with the background necessary to administer these drugs as safely and effectively as possible. ...
Among the most commonly prescribed CNS depressants are barbiturates, such as mephobarbital (Mebaral) and pentobarbital sodium (Nembutal), which are prescribed to treat anxiety, tension, and sleep disorders; and benzodiazepines, such as diazepam (Valium) and alprazolam (Xanax), which typically are prescribed to treat anxiety, acute stress reactions, and panic attacks. Other benzodiazepines, such as triazolam (Halcion) and estazolam (ProSom), are prescribed for short-term treatment of sleep disorders.. Although the various classes of CNS depressants work differently, they all produce a beneficial drowsy or calming effect in individuals suffering from sleep disorders or anxiety. If one uses these drugs over a long period of time, the will develop tolerance, and larger doses will be needed to achieve the initial effects. In addition, continued use can lead to physical dependence and, when use is reduced or stopped, withdrawal. Both barbiturates ...
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 ...

The binding of [3H]diazepam to benzodiazepine receptors was studied in extensively washed membranes of rat cerebral cortex in the presence of the depressant barbiturate, pentobarbital. Pentobarbital, like the endogenous neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), increased the basal binding and also potentiated the GABA-enhanced binding of [3H]diazepam to benzodiazepine receptors by increasing the apparent affinity of [3H]diazepam for the benzodiazepine receptor. The concentrations of pentobarbital necessary to elicit these effects in vitro are the same as those observed after treatment with pharmacologically relevant doses, suggesting that a common neurochemical association may exist between these types of compounds. ...

The atypical antipsychotics risperidone, olanzapine, quetiapine, ziprasidone, and aripiprazole have become first-line treatment for schizophrenia because they reduce the positive symptoms of psychosis but do not have a high incidence of extrapyramidal symptoms. However, these agents, like other antipsychotics, may take as long as 16 or more weeks to produce a response, and even with prolonged treatment are unlikely to evoke responses greater than 50% improvement in symptoms. This has led to the experimental use of high atypical antipsychotic doses, antipsychotic polypharmacy, and augmentation with other psychotropic drugs, all of which occur commonly in clinical practice. This article reviews the current evidence for these increasingly common means of treating schizophrenia and psychosis, with particular emphasis on polypharmacy and augmentation. To date, there are only two controlled studies of antipsychotic polypharmacy involving an atypical antipsychotic; the rest of the data are uncontrolled ...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The optimal approaches to management of patients treated with moderate statin doses on lipid parameters are unknown. The ACCENTUATE study aimed to compare the effects of adding the cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitor (CETP) evacetrapib, ezetimibe or increasing statin dose in atorvastatin-treated high-vascular risk patients on lipid parameters. METHODS: 366 patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and/or diabetes were treated with atorvastatin 40 mg/day for 28 days prior to randomization to atorvastatin 40 mg plus evacetrapib 130 mg, atorvastatin 80 mg, atorvastatin 40 mg plus ezetimibe 10 mg or atorvastatin 40 mg plus placebo, daily for 90 days at 64 centers in the United States ...
Risperidone is a benzisoxazole derivative with antagonistic activity, primarily at dopamine D2 and serotonin 5-HT2A receptors. The higher binding affinity of risperidone for 5-HT2A than for D2 receptors, along with the mesolimbic specificity of action, is thought to account for the reduced incidence of EPS relative to conventional antipsychotic drugs. It also has affinity for α1-adenergic receptors and lower affinity for α2-adrenergic and H1-histaminergic receptors. Unlike clozapine, it has no affinity for cholinergic receptors. The first two large, placebo-controlled, double-blind trials examining the efficacy and tolerability of an atypical antipsychotic drug for patients with BPSD was using risperidone (De Deyn et al, 1999; Katz et al, 1999).. Katz et al (1999) randomised 625 nursing home patients to receive risperidone at 3 possible doses (0.5, 1 or 2 mg daily) or placebo in 2 divided doses for 12 weeks. Treatment response at end-point was defined as a greater than 50% reduction in total ...
1. gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in both vertebrates and invertebrates. GABAA receptors are composed of a number of different subunits that assemble to form a chloride ionophore. 2. Several subunit types, alpha, beta, gamma, delta and rho have been cloned from vertebrates, but until recently these receptors have remained uncloned from invertebrates. 3. GABAA receptors form the proposed site of action of cyclodiene insecticides. Therefore a Drosophila mutant (Rdl), resistant to cyclodienes and the GABAA receptor ligand picrotoxin (PTX), was used to clone the gene responsible for resistance as a putative invertebrate GABAA receptor. 4.

The clinical picture and features of NMS with atypical antipsychotics seem to be different from those of typical antipsychotics. This had led to uncertainty over the diagnosis of NMS in patients on atypical antipsychotics who manifest only few of the NMS symptoms.38 Among the core symptoms of NMS, fever is often encountered less frequently in patients with atypical antipsychotic-induced NMS.38 The issue is further complicated by the various operational definitions of NMS.38 The DSM-IV-TR defines NMS as the presence of severe muscle rigidity and elevated temperature after antipsychotic initiation along with two or more of: diaphoresis, dysphagia, tremor, incontinence, changes in level of consciousness, mutism, tachycardia, elevated or labile blood pressure, leukocytosis, or laboratory evidence of muscle injury (elevated CPK level). Various other criteria for NMS have been postulated, each with varying emphasis on the individual symptoms and signs.39 Another set of criteria defines NMS in patients ...
The serotonin (5-HT) 1A receptor has been found to be dysregulated in prefrontal cortex and other brain regions in schizophrenia, and 5-HT1A receptor levels in the amygdala have been related to negative schizophrenia symptoms. We have assessed the impact of the functional C-1019G variant of the 5-HT1A receptor on the response to risperidone or haloperidol in a prospective, randomized, double-blind study. Patients were treated for 4 weeks and negative symptoms assessed weekly. The variant influenced the response to risperidone: improvement of negative symptoms by 4.38 points for carriers of the C allele, compared with the GG genotype (1.22 points, P=0.046). In a second independent study of 130 schizophrenia patients treated with atypical antipsychotics, this effect was confirmed (P=0.003). The functional variant of the 5-HT1A receptor thus influences the response of schizophrenia patients to atypical antipsychotics and may be useful in the future to predict the pharmacogenetics of negative ...
ABSTRACT Background: The Peripheral Benzodiazepine Receptor (PBR) can be classified as a distinct receptor from the central benzodiazepine receptor. The PBR gene has been located to chromosome 22q13.31 in humans and has been found to consist of four exons, with the first and half of the fourth exon being untranslated to form the PBR protein. PBR is involved in numerous biological conditions including the regulation of cellular proliferation and apoptosis, steroidogenesis, heme biosynthesis, anion and porphyrin transport and mitochondrial functions such as oxidative phosphorylation and translocation of cholesterol from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane. Recent studies showed that the expression of PBR correlated with tumour malignancy and patient survival. Aim: The objectives of this research were to determine the expression pattern and level of PBR mRNA in various types of human normal and cancer tissues and to isolate the PBR protein ...
Both muscarinic antagonists, such as scopolamine, and benzodiazepine receptor (BZR) agonists, such as diazepam, produce a reliable impairment in the performance of one trial passive avoidance. Such deficits are frequently interpreted as drug-induced amnesia. However, these deficits could also result from a learning impairment. The present experiments compared the effects of two BZR agonists, lorazepam (0, 0.125, 0.25, and 0.375 mg/kg, IP) and diazepam (0, 0.78, 1.56, and 3.13 mg/kg, IP) with the effects of two muscarinic antagonists, scopolamine (0, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 mg/kg, SC) and atropine (0, 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg, IP) on a multiple trial passive avoidance task. In this procedure, the rats were trained with a 5-min inter-trial interval until a learning criterion was achieved. Retention was assessed 24 h later. This enabled the effects of the drugs on the acquisition and the retention of a passive avoidance response to be dissociated. Both atropine and scopolamine produced a marked impairment in the
HealthDay News) -- Alzheimers patients given sedatives such as Valium or Xanax may have an increased risk for pneumonia, a new study warns.. People with Alzheimers disease are often given these drugs, called benzodiazepines, over the long term, the researchers said.. Examples of benzodiazepines include alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), and lorazepam (Ativan).. An increased risk of pneumonia is an important finding to consider in treatment of patients with Alzheimer disease. Pneumonia often leads to admission to hospital, and patients with dementia are at increased risk of death related to pneumonia, Dr. Heidi Taipale, of Kuopio Research Center of Geriatric Care at the University of Eastern Finland, and co-authors wrote.. For the study, the researchers reviewed data from nearly 50,000 Alzheimers patients in Finland. The patients average age was 80 and about two-thirds were women.. The study found that people with Alzheimers who took ...
Janssen Pharmaceutica, Inc. recently sent a letter out to physicians which advised physicians of important labeling changes regarding its antipsychotic drug, Risperdal ® (risperidone).. Risperdal was FDA approved for the treatment of schizophrenia. Janssen Pharmaceutica, Inc.advised the physicians that the FDA has asked all manufacturers of atypical antipsychotic medications, including Janssen Pharmaceutica, Inc. to add a Warnings statement describing the increased risk of hyperglycemia and diabetes in patients taking these medications, including Risperdal.. Accordingly, the Warning section of the Risperdal Prescribing Information was updated to warn that hyperglycemia, in some cases extreme and associated with ketoacidosis or hyperosmolar coma or death, has been reported in patients treated with atypical antipsychotics, including Risperdal.. It also advised that patients with an established diagnosis of diabetes mellitus who are started on atypical antipsychotics should be monitored regularly ...

A critical appraisal of paliperidone long-acting injection in the treatment of schizoaffective disorder Pierre Chue,1 James Chue2 1Department of Psychiatry, University of Alberta, 2Clinical Trials and Research Program, Edmonton, AB, Canada Abstract: Schizoaffective disorder (SCA) is a chronic and disabling mental illness that presents with mixed symptoms of schizophrenia and affective disorders. SCA is recognized as a discrete disorder, but with greater heterogeneity and symptom overlap, leading to difficulty and delay in diagnosis. Although the overall prognosis is intermediate between schizophrenia and mood disorders, SCA is associated with higher rates of suicide and hospitalization than schizophrenia. No treatment guidelines exist for SCA, and treatment is frequently complex, involving off-label use and polypharmacy (typically combinations of antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, and antidepressants). Oral paliperidone extended-release was the first agent to be approved for the treatment ...
Most adverse reactions to benzodiazepines, including CNS effects and respiratory depression, are dose dependent, with more severe effects occurring with high doses.. In a sample of about 3500 patients treated for anxiety, the most frequent adverse reaction to lorazepam was sedation (15.9%), followed by dizziness (6.9%), weakness (4.2%), and unsteadiness (3.4%). The incidence of sedation and unsteadiness increased with age.. Other adverse reactions to benzodiazepines, including lorazepam are fatigue, drowsiness, amnesia, memory impairment, confusion, disorientation, depression, unmasking of depression, disinhibition, euphoria, suicidal ideation/attempt, ataxia, asthenia, extrapyramidal symptoms, convulsions/seizures tremor, vertigo, eye-function/visual disturbance (including diplopia and blurred vision), dysarthria/slurred speech, change in libido, impotence, decreased orgasm; headache, coma; respiratory depression, apnea, worsening of sleep apnea, worsening of obstructive ...
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is more common in people with intellectual disability than in the general population. As in the general population, ADHD adversely affects the ability to learn and is associated with behavioural disturbance, and therefore any intervention to reduce these symptoms is important.. Risperidone is a newer atypical antipsychotic medication, prescribed to people with ID for many reasons, including disruptive behaviour, ADHD and psychosis. Most of the research into using risperidone for hyperactivity or disruptive behaviour has been performed in people with autism who do not have a clear diagnosis of ADHD. The aim of this review was to examine the effectiveness of risperidone in people (children and adults) with intellectual disability and ADHD.. No trials were found, and therefore there is no randomised controlled trial evidence to support or warn against the use of risperidone in this group of people. It is important that this reseearch question is ...
On August 22, 2007, Risperdal was approved as the only drug agent available for treatment of schizophrenia in youth ages 13 17; it was also approved that same day for treatment of bipolar disorder in youth and children ages 10 17, joining lithium. Risperidone contains the functional groups of benzisoxazole and piperidine as part of its molecular structure. In 2003 the FDA approved risperidone for the short-term treatment of the mixed and manic states associated with bipolar disorder. In 2006 the FDA approved risperidone for the treatment of irritability in children and adolescents with autism. The FDA`s decision was based in part on a study of autistic children with severe and enduring problems of violent meltdowns, aggression, and self-injury; risperidone is not recommended for autistic children with mild aggression and explosive behavior without an enduring pattern. Like other atypical antipsychotics, risperidone has also been used off-label for the treatment of anxiety disorders, such as ...

A benzodiazepine (sometimes colloquially "benzo"; often abbreviated "BZD") is a drug whose core chemical structure is the fusion of a benzene ring and a diazepine ring. The first such drug, chlordiazepoxide (Librium), was discovered accidentally by Leo Sternbach in 1955, and made available in 1960 by Hoffmann-La Roche, which has also marketed the benzodiazepine diazepam (Valium) since 1963. Benzodiazepines enhance the effect of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) at the GABAA receptor, resulting in sedative, hypnotic (sleep-inducing), anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant properties; also seen in the applied pharmacology of high doses of many shorter-acting benzodiazepines are amnesic-dissociative actions. These properties make benzodiazepines useful in treating anxiety, insomnia, agitation, seizures, muscle spasms, alcohol withdrawal and as a premedication for medical or dental procedures. ...

Electronic (e)-cigarettes are handheld battery-operated devices which aim to simulate conventional cigarettes, and provide inhaled doses of vaporised nicotine. Described as a disruptive technology (ie, replacing conventional cigarettes),1 these products appeared on the UK market in 2006 and consumption has since grown rapidly, although they are not universally regulated or licensed. There are currently an estimated 2.8 million adult users in the UK, with the majority either dual users, who use cigarettes as well as e-cigarettes, or ex-smokers.2 A recent report by Public Health England3 endorsed an estimate that e-cigarettes are 95% safer than tobacco,4 although their safety has been contested5 and there has been criticism of the primary source of this figure due to its sole basis on expert opinion.6 While research on their role for smoking cessation is underdeveloped, e-cigarettes are seen as offering significant potential. They have become the most popular quitting aid for adults in ...
