Recurrence in affective disorder: analyses with frailty models. (1/1210)

The risk of recurrence in affective disorder is influenced by the number of prior episodes and by a person's tendency toward recurrence. Newly developed frailty models were used to estimate the effect of the number of episodes on the rate of recurrence, taking into account individual frailty toward recurrence. The study base was the Danish psychiatric case register of all hospital admissions for primary affective disorder in Denmark during 1971-1993. A total of 20,350 first-admission patients were discharged with a diagnosis of major affective disorder. For women with unipolar disorder and for all kinds of patients with bipolar disorder, the rate of recurrence was affected by the number of prior episodes even when the effect was adjusted for individual frailty toward recurrence. No effect of episodes but a large effect of the frailty parameter was found for unipolar men. The authors concluded that the risk of recurrence seems to increase with the number of episodes of bipolar affective disorder in general and for women with unipolar disorder.  (+info)

The use of atypical antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia. (2/1210)

Long-term drug treatment of schizophrenia with conventional antipsychotics has limitations: an estimated quarter to one third of patients are treatment-resistant; conventional antipsychotics have only a modest impact upon negative symptoms (poverty of thought, social withdrawal and loss of affect); and adverse effects, particularly extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). Newer, so-called atypical, antipsychotics such as olanzapine, risperidone, sertindole and clozapine (an old drug which was re-introduced in 1990) are claimed to address these limitations. Atypical agents are, at a minimum, at least as effective as conventional drugs such as haloperidol. They also cause substantially fewer extrapyramidal symptoms. However, some other adverse effects are more common than with conventional drugs. For example, clozapine carries a significant risk of serious blood disorders, for which special monitoring is mandatory; it also causes troublesome drowsiness and increased salivation more often than conventional agents. Some atypical agents cause more weight gain or QT prolongation than older agents. The choice of therapy is, therefore, not straightforward. At present, atypical agents represent an advance for patients with severe or intolerable EPS. Most published evidence exists to support the use of clozapine, which has also been shown to be effective in schizophrenia refractory to conventional agents. However, the need for compliance with blood count monitoring and its sedative properties make careful patient selection important. The extent of any additional direct benefit offered by atypical agents on negative symptoms is not yet clear. The lack of a depot formulation for atypical drugs may pose a significant practical problem. To date, only two double-blind studies in which atypical agents were compared directly have been published. Neither provides compelling evidence for the choice of one agent over another. Atypical agents are many times more expensive than conventional drugs. Although drug treatment constitutes only a small proportion of the costs of managing schizophrenia, the additional annual cost of the use of atypical agents in, say, a quarter of the likely U.K. schizophrenic population would be about 56 M pound sterling. There is only limited evidence of cost-effectiveness. Atypical antipsychotics are not currently licensed for other conditions where conventional antipsychotics are commonly used, such as behaviour disturbance or dementia in the elderly. Their dose, and place in treatment in such cases have yet to be determined.  (+info)

Affective symptoms in multiple system atrophy and Parkinson's disease: response to levodopa therapy. (3/1210)

The objective was to determine the extent to which psychiatric disturbances (especially mood disorders) generally considered poor prognostic factors, are present in patients with striatonigral (SND) type multiple system atrophy (MSA) compared with patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). The Hamilton depression scale (HAM-D), brief psychiatric rating scale (BPRS), and Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (UPDRS) were administered to clinically probable non-demented patients with SND-type MSA and patients with IPD matched for age and motor disability, at baseline and after receiving levodopa. At baseline total HAM-D score was greater in patients with IPD. Overall, BPRS score did not differ between the two groups; however, patients with IPD scored higher on anxiety items of the BPRS, and patients with MSA had higher scores on the item indicating blunted affect. After levodopa, both groups improved significantly in UPDRS and HAM-D total scores (just significant for patients with MSA). Patients with IPD improved significantly in total BPRS score but patients with MSA did not. At baseline patients with IPD were more depressed and anxious than patients with MSA who, by contrast, showed blunted affect. After levodopa, depression and anxiety of patients with IPD improved significantly whereas the affective detachment of patients with MSA did not change. Major neuronal loss in the caudate and ventral striatum, which are part of the lateral orbitofrontal and limbic circuits, may be responsible for the blunted affect not responsive to levodopa therapy found in patients with MSA.  (+info)

Disagreement in patient and carer assessment of functional abilities after stroke. (4/1210)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to describe differences between functional ability assessments made by stroke patients and their informal carers and to investigate the psychological associates of the difference in assessments. METHODS: A prospective design was used, with repeated assessments of function, mood, and carer strain. Thirty hospital stroke patients and their main carer were interviewed 3 times: within 1 month of stroke, 1 month after discharge, and 6 months after discharge. RESULTS: There were significant differences between patient and carer assessments at all 3 time points, with patient self-assessment less disabled than carer assessment (at least P<0.02). The disagreement in assessment was unrelated to patient or carer mood (P>0.05) but greater disagreement was associated with greater carer strain (P<0.05). The source of the disagreement in functional ability assessment remains unclear. CONCLUSIONS: The method of assessment affects the rating of functional abilities after stroke. Carer strain is potentially increased when the patient or carer makes an unrealistic assessment of the patient's level of independence.  (+info)

A prospective multicentre study in Sweden and Norway of mental distress and psychiatric morbidity in head and neck cancer patients. (5/1210)

A Swedish/Norwegian head and neck cancer study was designed to assess prospectively the levels of mental distress and psychiatric morbidity in a heterogeneous sample of newly diagnosed head and neck cancer patients. A total of 357 patients were included. The mean age was 63 years, and 72% were males. The patients were asked to answer the HAD scale (the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale) six times during 1 year. The number of possible or probable cases of anxiety or depression disorder was calculated according to standardized cut-offs. Approximately one-third of the patients scored as a possible or probable case of a major mood disorder at each measurement point during the study year. There were new cases of anxiety or depression at each time point. The anxiety level was highest at diagnosis, while depression was most common during treatment. Females were more anxious than males at diagnosis, and patients under 65 years of age scored higher than those over 65. Patients with lower performance status and more advanced disease reported higher levels of mental distress and more often scored as a probable or possible cases of psychiatric disorder. Our psychometric analyses supported the two-dimensional structure and stability of the HAD scale. The HAD scale seems to be the method of choice for getting valid information about the probability of mood disorder in head and neck cancer populations. The prevalence of psychiatric morbidity found in this study emphasizes the importance of improved diagnosis and treatment.  (+info)

Schizophrenia and major affective disorder among Medicaid recipients with HIV/AIDS in New Jersey. (6/1210)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to identify and characterize seriously mentally ill patients with HIV infection. METHODS: Medicaid beneficiaries with HIV/AIDS were identified through the merging of New Jersey HIV/AIDS Registry and Medicaid eligibility files. Claims histories were used to classify individuals as having schizophrenia, major affective disorder, or no serious mental illness. RESULTS: Of 8294 individuals, 476 (5.7%) were classified as having schizophrenia, and 564 (6.8%) were classified as having major affective disorder. Those with serious mental illness were more likely than other groups to be injection drug users and to have claims indicative of substance abuse. CONCLUSIONS: Individuals with serious mental illness are a significant but little-recognized subgroup of those with HIV infection.  (+info)

Underlying personality differences between alcohol/substance-use disorder patients with and without an affective disorder. (7/1210)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a popular personality test, was used to profile the personalities of in-patient alcoholics/substance-use disorder patients who had, and those who did not have, a concurrent affective disorder diagnosis. The MBTI divides individuals into eight categories: Extroverts and Introverts, Sensors and Intuitives, Thinkers and Feelers, and Judgers and Perceivers. Alcohol/substance-use disorder patients with no affective disorder differed from a normative population only in being significantly more often Sensing and significantly less often Intuitive single-factor types. The Extroverted/Sensing/ Feeling/Judging four-factor type was also significantly over-represented in this group, compared to a normative population. In contrast, mood-disordered alcohol/substance-use disorder patients were significantly more often Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Perceiving and significantly less often Extroverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Judging single-factor types. They were also significantly more often Introverted/Sensing/ Feeling/Perceiving and Introverted/Intuitive/Feeling/Perceiving four-factor types. 'Pure' alcohol/ substance-use disorder patients differed from alcohol/substance-use disorder patients with a mood disorder in that they were significantly more often Extroverted and Thinking and significantly less often Introverted and Feeling single-factor types; and significantly less often were an Introverted/Sensing/ Feeling/Perceiving four-factor type. The above results may have psychogenetic, diagnostic, and psychotherapeutic implications.  (+info)

Role of the serotonergic system in the pathogenesis of major depression and suicidal behavior. (8/1210)

Phylogenetically, the serotonergic system is one of the oldest transmitter systems in the brain. Combining a complex and widespread innervation of most cortical and subcortical structures, with over a dozen receptor subtypes, there is a diversity of signaling opportunities and functional roles that explain the association of serotonin with many different types of psychopathological conditions. The role of the serotonergic system in mood disorders and in the predisposition for suicidal behavior are reviewed in this paper. Effects on the serotonergic system underlie the antidepressant action of many types of medications and must be integrated into a neurobiological model of mood disorders.  (+info)

Mood Disorders - Condition and Symptoms Mood Disorders are one form of mental illness. Mood Disorders can range from mild depression to psychosis. Mood is definite as the way a person experiences internal emotions, and a mood disorder can be thought of as any condition that disturbs ones emotional life. Mood Disorders are extremely common, and may be caused by a traumatic event, brain chemistry, genetic inheritance, allergens, and any number of other factors. Mood Disorders can be broadly categorized as being either depression- or anxiety-related.
Amish Study of Major Affective Disorders. Two Tiers of Data Access. The NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository has distributed samples from Dr. Janice Egelands studies on bipolar disease in the Old Order Amish since 1982. Samples from approximately 250 subjects have been available with clinical data since the late 1980s. In the last few years Dr. Egeland has collected samples from additional members of the family and submitted additional cell lines prepared by her colleague Dr. Ed Ginns. These cell lines and DNA are now available under limited conditions.. As with any genetic study of a small community or population, there are concerns that the privacy of the extended family might be compromised if the pedigree were openly available on the web catalog. Following discussions with Dr. Egeland and with the input from the NIGMS Scientific Advisory Committee, the Repository has developed a two tier scheme for access to the clinical and pedigree information for the Old Order Amish Major Affective ...
Anyone can feel sad or depressed at times. However, mood disorders are more intense and difficult to manage than normal feelings of sadness. Children, adolescents, or adults who have a parent with a mood disorder have a greater chance of also having a mood disorder. However, life events and stress can expose or exaggerate feelings of sadness or depression, making the feelings more difficult to manage.. Sometimes, lifes problems can trigger depression. Being fired from a job, getting divorced, losing a loved one, death in the family, and financial trouble, to name a few, all can be difficult and coping with the pressure may be troublesome. These life events and stress can bring on feelings of sadness or depression or make a mood disorder harder to manage.. The chance for depression in females in the general population is nearly twice as high (12 percent) as it is for males (6.6 percent). Once a person in the family has this diagnosis, the chance for their siblings or children to have the same ...

Mood disorders are common, complex and costly neuropsychiatric disorders which occur at all ages and in all demographic groups. Modern diagnostic schemes differentiate between Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorders, but there is much overlap between these categories. Traditionally defined by symptom clusters (i.e., mania, depression or mixtures thereof), it is now increasingly recognised that other aspects of these disorders may play an important role in the fundamental disease processes and the mechanism of action of treatments. The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) includes cognitive symptoms as one of the nine diagnostic criteria for major depressive episode which can occur in the context of major depression or bipolar disorder. Cognitive impairment in patients with mood disorders is being recognised as a significant factor that can have an impact on patients ability to function and on their recovery from their mood disorder and as a result
Several investigators have described kids with mood lability who satisfy many of the diagnostic criteria for bipolar disorder in their prepubertal years (16-19). Kids with presumptive bipolar disorder exhibit mixed mood states, chronic irritability, rapid cycling, suicidality, and oppositionality. Kids with developmental disabilities have a two-to-six-times greater risk of experiencing comorbid psychiatric conditions than their developmentally normal peers (3, 20-22). The presence of comorbid affective disorders in these kids may more severely impair an individual with already limited cognitive functions and social skills (23). However, individuals with Aspergers and other developmental disabilities can suffer from treatable comorbid mood disorders for years, despite frequent medical assessments and developmental and psychiatric evaluations. The reasons for this delay in diagnosis of a comorbid mood disorder are complex and multiple. The symptoms of mood disorders can be masked by other symptoms ...

Cyclothymia is a never-ending bipolar disorder which where it includes short periods of mild depression which changes with short periods of hypomania. It is believed. The beginning of each stage is divided by short periods of normal mood.. The Schizoaffective disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis which describes a certain condition in where both of the psychosis and mood disorder symptoms are present. It usually starts during the earlier stage of adulthood and is very common among women. There are two sub-types of schizoaffective disorder which are the depressive type and the bipolar type.. Researches of clinical psychiatric are increasingly implying that bipolar and unipolar mood disorders are continuous individual in complete mood variety. The variety runs endlessly from schizo-bipolar disorder to unipolar depression along with disorders of anxiety are running across the gamut.. Nonetheless, there are several professionals have disputes over this statement. Some maintains that bipolar disorder, ...

BackgroundWe conducted a meta-analysis to re-evaluate the role of the dopamine D4 receptor gene 48-base-pair- repeat (DRD4) polymorphism in mood disorders.MethodsDRD4 allele frequencies were compared between 917 patients with unipolar (UP) or bipolar affective disorder (BP) and 1164 control subjects from 12 samples, using the Cochrane Review Manager.ResultsAn association was found between all mood disorder groups and DRD4.2. After correcting for multiple testing, the association between DRD4.2 and BP dropped to insignificance; however, the evidence of an association between the DRD4.2 allele and UP (p | .001) and the combined group (p | .001) remained. There was no evidence for heterogeneity or publication bias.ConclusionsThese findings suggest that the DRD4.2 allele is a risk allele for depression symptomatology. Meta-analysis may be a valuable objective tool for a quantitative summary of evidence for association studies in psychiatric genetics.

Racial/ethnic differences in health are evident among men. Previous work suggests associations between mental and physical health but few studies have examined how mood/anxiety disorders and chronic physical health conditions covary by age, race, and ethnicity among men. Using data from 1,277 African American, 629 Caribbean Black, and 371 non-Hispanic White men from the National Survey of American Life, we examined associations between race/ethnicity and experiencing one or more chronic physical health conditions in logistic regression models stratified by age and 12-month mood/anxiety disorder status. Among men ,45 years without mood/anxiety disorders, Caribbean Blacks had lower odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Among men aged 45+ years with mood/anxiety disorders, African Americans had greater odds of chronic physical health conditions than Whites. Future studies should explore the underlying causes of such variation and how studying mental and chronic physical health ...
We used a dot-probe paradigm to examine attention bias toward threat (i.e., angry) and happy face stimuli in severe mood dysregulation (SMD) versus healthy comparison (HC) youth. The tendency to allocate attention to threat is well established in anxiety and other disorders of negative affect. SMD is characterized by the negative affect of irritability, and longitudinal studies suggest childhood irritability predicts adult anxiety and depression. Therefore, it is important to study pathophysiologic connections between irritability and anxiety disorders. ...
A recent study revealed that 21 percent of women who experience postpartum anxiety or depression do not share their symptoms with healthcare providers.. We know that 10-20 percent of women experience significant mood disorders after childbirth, and those disorders can adversely affect the physical and emotional well-being of both mothers and children, said researcher Betty-Shannon Prevatt, a practicing clinical psychologist and Ph.D. student at NC State. Our goal with this study was to see how many women are not disclosing these problems, since thats a threshold issue for helping women access treatment.. The researchers conducted an anonymous survey involving 211 women who gave birth within the previous three years. The survey inquired whether the women had experienced postpartum mood disorder (PPMD) symptoms, and if so, did they share the symptoms with any healthcare workers, such as nurses, doctors, or lactation consultants. Questions were also asked regarding overall mental health and ...

Mood disorders are a group of mental illnesses that affect how you feel and think about yourself, other people and life in general. There are a few different types of mood disorders: depression, dysthymic disorder and bipolar disorder.. Depression leaves you feeling sad or depressed. Some people experience depression as feeling numb or having no feelings. Depression can also make you feel irritable, hopeless and guilty. Many people living with depression lose interest in things they used to enjoy or and they often isolate themselves from family and friends. But depression can affect more than your mood: you might have a hard time concentrating or remembering. You might sleep or eat less than usual or more than usual. You might also feel tired all the time. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression thats affected by the seasons. It usually affects people in the winter months, when theres less daylight. Postpartum depression is a type of depression that affects a mother after ...
Based on limited data, it is generally thought that pregnancy may protect against recurrence of major affective disorders or suicide. The postpartum period, however, is widely considered a high-risk period for recurrence of potentially severe and life-threatening episodes of major affective disorders. Use of antimanic agents (lithium, valproate, carbamazepine) is complicated because of the balance between some fetal teratogenic risk, the risk of untreated psychiatric illness during pregnancy and the early relapse of manic-depressive illness following cessation of medication. Viguera and associates studied whether pregnancy is associated with a greater or lesser risk of recurring mania or bipolar depression, and whether pregnant and nonpregnant women respond differently to treatment cessation.. Women with bipolar illness who discontinued lithium maintenance treatment were evaluated. Forty-two pregnant women were followed throughout pregnancy and for 24 weeks postpartum and compared with 59 ...
Emotional reasoning refers to the use of subjective emotions, rather than objective evidence, to form conclusions about oneself and the world.

In Study 1, low dysphoric (BDI-II≤4; n = 28) and high dysphoric (BDI-II ≥14; n = 42) university students were administered an emotional reasoning task relevant for dysphoria. In Study 2, a larger university sample were administered the same task, with additional self-referent ratings, and were followed up 8 weeks later. In Study 1, both the low and high dysphoric participants demonstrated emotional reasoning and there were no significant differences in scores on the emotional reasoning task between the low and high dysphoric groups. In Study 2, self-referent emotional reasoning interpretations showed small-sized positive correlations with depression symptoms. Emotional reasoning tendencies ...

A number of psychiatric syndromes feature depressed mood as a main symptom. The mood disorders are a group of disorders considered to be primary disturbances of mood. These include major depressive disorder (MDD; commonly called major depression or clinical depression) where a person has at least two weeks of depressed mood or a loss of interest or pleasure in nearly all activities; and dysthymia, a state of chronic depressed mood, the symptoms of which do not meet the severity of a major depressive episode. Another mood disorder, bipolar disorder, features one or more episodes of abnormally elevated mood, cognition and energy levels, but may also involve one or more episodes of depression.[23] When the course of depressive episodes follows a seasonal pattern, the disorder (major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, etc.) may be described as a seasonal affective disorder. Outside the mood disorders: borderline personality disorder often features an extremely intense depressive mood; adjustment ...
Bipolar disorder is a common, life-long, progressive disease that typically begins in adolescence or early adulthood and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality (Lish et al., 1994). Family studies have shown that offspring of parents with bipolar disorder have a 30% chance of developing a mood disorder, while children with both parents with a mood disorder (with at least one with bipolar disorder) have a 70% chance of developing a mood disorder (Goodwin and Jamison 1990). Indeed, children (, 18 years old) have an even greater risk for developing bipolar disorder if they have a parent with the disorder (reviewed in Lapalme et al., 1997; DelBello and Geller, 2002; Chang and Steiner, 2003). Since the clinical manifestations of bipolar disorder often present early in life and may worsen with age, it is imperative that this illness is recognized and treated as readily as possible. Bipolar disorder may have a number of prodromal or early-onset presentations that do not include syndromal ...

Additional info for Depression and bipolar disorder : your guide to recovery. Sample text. Many doctors arent great communicators. The medical and mental health literature is difficult to understand (frequently even for professionals) and often contradictory. The bookstore shelves are filled with self-help titles, but few provide the comprehensive information that you need. This book is the missing manual you may have been looking for.

If you become aware of new stressors in your life, then that is also a reason to do an update. In addition to your stress and crisis management plan, please consider cultivating other protective factors.

Anxiety and depression are the two most prevalent illnesses among patients, and in the general population. Because these two mood disorders are frequently co-morbid they can have especially problematic outcomes. The nature of these mood disorders can make filling out long questionnaires difficult if patients are suffering from fatigue or loss of concentration. Furthermore, time is at a premium in any clinical practice. Therefore, the Patient Health Questionnaire-4 (PHQ-4) was developed and validated by Kroenke, Spitzer, Williams, & Lowe, (2009) in order to address these needs ...

The ability to take in new information from the environment, make sense of it, and respond accordingly is essential for healthy mood and cognition. Essential neurobiological mechanisms of cognitive processing have been shown to be dysfunctional in mood disorders. This involves the pre-frontal cortex (PFC), limbic system and, most importantly, the connections between these 2 areas. The PFC and limbic system are in constant communication with each other, and their connections are in constant flux. The structure is dynamic, even in the adult brain. It is the disruption of this communication - like 1 family member refusing to listen and another shouting louder than can be heard - that disrupts overall cognitive processing contributing to anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders.. The PFC is the most evolved part of the brain, with particular importance for executive function: planning, decision-making, controlling impulses, and motivation. The PFC can be further divided into specialized areas ...

Abstract. It is proposed that happiness be classified as a psychiatric disorder and be included in future editions of the major diagnostic manuals under the new name: major affective disorder, pleasant type. In a review of the relevant literature it is shown that happiness is statistically abnormal, consists of a discrete cluster of symptoms, is associated with a range of cognitive abnormalities, and probably reflects the abnormal functioning of the central nervous system. One possible objection to this proposal remains-that happiness is not negatively valued. However, this objection is dismissed as scientifically irrelevant.. PMID: 1619629 ...

The purposeof the study was to investigate whether a patients adaptive occupational functioning is related to diagnoses of schizophrenia or mood disorders. The Occupational Case Analysis Interview and Rating Scale (OCAIRS) was used to examine the patients adaptation in everyday occupation. Three groups of patients were studied: patients with schizophrenia (n=18), major depression (n=20), and bipolar disorders (n=22). The adaptive occupational functioning of patients with schizophrenia and those with bipolar disorders was significantly reduced, to the same levels as that of patients with major depression. Thus, a patients adaptive occupational functioning seems to be related to the studied psychiatric diagnoses. This observation may be used as a first step when screen patients for occupational therapy.. ...

Background Cognitive compromise is a common experience for patients with depression and other mood disorders. Depressed patients sustain deficits in working memory and attentional distortions in emotional processing and negative attention biases, which may contribute to maintaining their depressive state. Methods The Mood Assessment and Classification (MAC) Committee comprised academic psychiatrists with clinical expertise in the management of mood disorders. The independently convened committee met to discuss contentious aspects of mood disorders diagnosis and assessment with the express aim of informing clinical practice and future research. Results The Committee specifically identified cognition as an important aspect for clinicians to consider in the context of depression and mood disorders. This article highlights some of the barriers to assessment and proposes tools that have the potential to be implemented in clinical practice. Limitations The conclusions drawn within this article are ...

Treatment Completion and Recovery Rates. Of all patients who began treatment with me for a mood disorder, 15% achieved complete recovery, 24% made significant progress, 41% made some progress, 15% made no progress, and 6% regressed. For a detailed description of what terms such as complete recovery and significant progress mean, please see this blog post from 2013.. Eighteen percent of patients completed a full course of treatment with me. Completing a full course of treatment was defined as a mutual ending in which the patient, his/her family (in cases where family was involved) and I mutually agree that treatment goals have been met and treatment is no longer needed. Of these treatment completers, 83% achieved full recovery and the remaining 17% made significant progress towards treatment goals.. The length of time required to complete a full course of treatment varied dramatically from person to person, depending on symptom severity and progress in treatment. Time required to complete ...
