Agents that control agitated psychotic behavior, alleviate acute psychotic states, reduce psychotic symptoms, and exert a quieting effect. They are used in SCHIZOPHRENIA; senile dementia; transient psychosis following surgery; or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; etc. These drugs are often referred to as neuroleptics alluding to the tendency to produce neurological side effects, but not all antipsychotics are likely to produce such effects. Many of these drugs may also be effective against nausea, emesis, and pruritus.

Ictus expectoratus: a sign of complex partial seizures usually of non-dominant temporal lobe origin. (2/225)

Spitting (or expectoration) is rarely seen with seizures. In Western society, spitting is a striking behavioral aberration. A 13-year-old child had intermittent agitated behavior, episodes of rage, spitting and confusion lasting up to 2 minutes. He stood up in church and told the preacher to 'shut up and sit down'. Epilepsy monitoring revealed spitting with polysharp and spike seizures resolved over the right temporal lobe. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a right temporal lobe ganglioglioma. Spitting seizures resolved after resection. Ictal expectoration is rare. It may occur with epigastric aura, nausea, chewing, swallowing and fumbling. Literature review disclosed 17 cases, 12 of which arose from the non-dominant hemisphere. Most regressed with surgery and anticonvulsants.  (+info)

Inter-ictal and post-ictal psychoses in frontal lobe epilepsy: a retrospective comparison with psychoses in temporal lobe epilepsy. (3/225)

There have been few studies of the psychopathology of patients with frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE). The majority of studies of both inter-ictal and post-ictal psychoses have strongly suggested the influence of temporal lobe disturbance on psychoses. Patients with organic brain damage or schizophrenia, however, sometimes show frontal lobe dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to better understand the effect, if any, of frontal lobe disturbance and seizure on psychopathology. Patients were divided into four groups based on epilepsy type and preceding seizures; 8 with FLE/inter-ictal psychosis, 3 with FLE/post-ictal psychosis, 29 with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE)/inter-ictal psychosis, and 8 with TLE/post-ictal psychosis. Psychopathologic symptoms were retrospectively reviewed based on case notes, using a modified brief psychiatric rating scale (BPRS). Psychomotor excitement, hostility, suspiciousness, and hallucinatory behaviour were prominent features in all four groups. Six orthogonal factors were derived by factor analysis from the original data based on the 18 BPRS items. FLE patients with inter-ictal psychosis showed marked hebephrenic characteristics (i.e. emotional withdrawal and blunted effect). Our findings suggest that patients with FLE can exhibit various psychiatric symptoms. However, their psychotic symptoms, hebephrenic symptoms in particular, may often be overlooked.  (+info)

Life-threatening brain failure and agitation in the intensive care unit. (4/225)

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

Adverse events, including death, associated with the use of 1,4-butanediol. (5/225)

BACKGROUND: 1,4-Butanediol is an industrial solvent that, when ingested, is converted to gamma-hydroxybutyrate, a drug of abuse with depressant effects, primarily on the central nervous system. After reports of toxic effects of gamma-hydroxybutyrate and its resultant regulation by the federal government, 1,4-butanediol and gamma-butyrolactone, another precursor of gamma-hydroxybutyrate and an industrial solvent, began to be marketed as dietary supplements. We investigated reports of toxic effects due to the ingestion of 1,4-butanediol and reviewed the related health risks. METHODS: From June 1999 through December 1999, we identified cases of toxic effects of 1,4-butanediol involving patients who presented to our emergency departments with a clinical syndrome suggesting toxic effects of gamma-hydroxybutyrate and a history of ingesting 1,4-butanediol and patients discovered through public health officials and family members. We used gas chromatography-mass spectrometry to measure 1,4-butanediol or its metabolite, gamma-hydroxybutyrate, in urine, serum, or blood. RESULTS: We identified nine episodes of toxic effects in eight patients who had ingested 1,4-butanediol recreationally, to enhance bodybuilding, or to treat depression or insomnia. One patient presented twice with toxic effects and had withdrawal symptoms after her second presentation. Clinical findings and adverse events included vomiting, urinary and fecal incontinence, agitation, combativeness, a labile level of consciousness, respiratory depression, and death. No additional intoxicants were identified in six patients, including the two who died. The doses of 1,4-butanediol ingested ranged from 5.4 to 20 g in the patients who died and ranged from 1 to 14 g in the nonfatal cases. CONCLUSIONS: The health risks of 1,4-butanediol are similar to those of its counterparts, gamma-hydroxybutyrate and gamma-butyrolactone. These include acute toxic effects, which may be fatal, and addiction and withdrawal.  (+info)

Hyperactivity and impaired response habituation in hyperdopaminergic mice. (6/225)

Abnormal dopaminergic transmission is implicated in schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and drug addiction. In an attempt to model aspects of these disorders, we have generated hyperdopaminergic mutant mice by reducing expression of the dopamine transporter (DAT) to 10% of wild-type levels (DAT knockdown). Fast-scan cyclic voltammetry and in vivo microdialysis revealed that released dopamine was cleared at a slow rate in knockdown mice, which resulted in a higher extracellular dopamine concentration. Unlike the DAT knockout mice, the DAT knockdown mice do not display a growth retardation phenotype. They have normal home cage activity but display hyperactivity and impaired response habituation in novel environments. In addition, we show that both the indirect dopamine receptor agonist amphetamine and the direct agonists apomorphine and quinpirole inhibit locomotor activity in the DAT knockdown mice, leading to the hypothesis that a shift in the balance between dopamine auto and heteroreceptor function may contribute to the therapeutic effect of psychostimulants in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  (+info)

Influence of the 5-HT(2C) receptor antagonist SB242,084 on behaviour produced by the 5-HT(2) agonist Ro60-0175 and the indirect 5-HT agonist dexfenfluramine. (7/225)

Ro60-0175 has been described as a selective agonist at the 5-HT(2C) receptor, yet it has only 10- fold higher affinity at the 5-HT(2C) compared to the 5-HT(2A) subtype, and equivalent affinity for the 5-HT(2B) receptor. The selective 5-HT(2C) receptor antagonist SB242,084 (0.5 mg kg(-1) i.p.), blocked the hypoactivity and penile grooming induced by Ro60-0175 (1 mg kg(-1) s.c.). The combination of SB242,084 (0.5 mg kg(-1) i.p.) and Ro60-0175 (3 - 10 mg kg(-1)) produced a completely different pattern of behaviours including wet-dog shakes, hyperactivity and back muscle contractions. These latter effects were blocked by the selective 5-HT(2A) receptor antagonist MDL100,907 (0.5 mg kg(-1) i.p.), but not the 5-HT(2B) receptor antagonist SB215,505 (3 mg kg(-1) p.o.). The indirect 5-HT releaser/reuptake inhibitor dexfenfluramine (1 - 10 mg kg(-1) i.p.) produced a mild increase in locomotor activity, penile grooming, and occasional back muscle contractions and wet-dog shakes. Pre-treatment with SB242,084 (0.5 mg kg(-1)), blocked the incidence of penile grooming, and markedly potentiated both the dexfenfluramine-induced hyperactivity, the incidence of back muscle contractions, and to a lesser extent wet-dog shakes. Some toxicity was also evident in animals treated with dexfenfluramine (10 mg kg(-1))/SB242,084 (0.5 mg kg(-1)), but not in any other treatment groups. The hyperactivity and toxicity produced by the dexfenfluramine (10 mg kg(-1))/SB242,084 (0.5 mg kg(-1)) combination was replicated in a further study, and hyperthermia was also recorded. Both hyperthermia and toxicity were blocked by MDL100,907 (0.5 mg kg(-1)) but not SB215,505 (3 mg kg(-1)). An attenuation of the hyperlocomotor response was also observed following MDL100,907. These findings suggest that 5-HT(2C) receptor activation can inhibit the expression of behaviours mediated through other 5-HT receptor subtypes.  (+info)

Continuous phencyclidine treatment induces schizophrenia-like hyperreactivity of striatal dopamine release. (8/225)

Functional dopaminergic hyperactivity is a key feature of schizophrenia. Recent in vivo imaging studies have demonstrated greater striatal dopamine release in response to amphetamine challenge in schizophrenia subjects than in normal controls. N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are known to play a prominent role in regulation of striatal dopamine release. In humans, NMDA antagonists induce a psychotic state that closely resembles schizophrenia. The present study investigates the degree to which chronic continuous administration of the NMDA antagonist phencyclidine (PCP) induces schizophrenia-like hyperreactivity of striatal dopamine release to amphetamine in rodents. Rats were treated with 10 or 15 mg/kg/d PCP for two weeks by osmotic minipump, and striatal dopamine release to amphetamine challenge (1 mg/kg) was monitored by microdialysis. PCP-treated rats showed significant enhancement in amphetamine-induced dopamine release, along with significantly enhanced locomotor activity. These findings support the concept that NMDA receptor dysfunction may contribute to dopaminergic dysfunction in schizophrenia.  (+info)

Objectives The Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory (CMAI; (Cohen-Mansfield and Kerin, 1986)) is a well-known tool for assessing agitated behaviours in people with dementia who reside in long-term care. No studies have evaluated the psychometric qualities and factor structure of the CMAI in acute general hospitals, a setting where people with demand may become agitated. Method Longitudinal study investigating pain, agitation and behavioural problems in 230 people with dementia admitted to acute general hospitals in 2011-2012. Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory was completed as part of a battery of assessments including PAINAD to measure pain. Results A nine-item two-factor model of aggressive and nonaggressive behaviours proved to be the best-fitting measurement model in this sample, (χ2 = 96.3, df = 26, p,0.001; BIC [Bayesian Information Criterion] = 4593.06, CFI [Comparative Fit Index] = 0.884, TLI [Tucker Lewis Index] = 0.839, RMSEA [Root Mean Square Error of the Approximation] = 0.108). ...

It is important to address some limitations of meta-analysis. First, each study has a different study protocol. This can elicit significant heterogeneity, although significant heterogeneity in our study was not suspected by statistical analysis. It is debatable whether it is justified to combine the results of different protocols in the calculation of the pooled OR and in drawing conclusions. Second, emergence agitation was the focus of this meta-analysis; however, measurement of emergence agitation in each respective study was not always performed using a validated and reliable tool. This may preclude comparisons among the clinical trials. Most studies used a self-made, nonvalidated rating scale to evaluate emergence agitation, which focused more on behavioral than psychometric factors. None used a validated scoring system such as the Pediatric Anesthesia Emergence Delirium scale.7 Furthermore, the emergence agitation was evaluated by a blinded specialist in some studies; in other studies, ...
One, in particular, that has been the subject of increased attention in the context of ADHD is anxiety disorder.(17,18) Indeed, a significant symptom overlap between the two conditions has been consistently observed. Among the symptoms common to both that may complicate diagnosis are restlessness/psychomotor agitation, concentration difficulties, decreased attention, increased distractibility, mood swings, and anger outbursts.(19) In a recent attempt to gain further insight into the implications of this symptom overlap, an investigation into the validity of two widely used ADHD and anxiety rating scales, the Conners Adult ADHD Rating Scale (CAARS) and State Trait Anxiety Inventory scales (STAI), was conducted. The authors of the study found that the CAARS and STAI had limited sensitivity and specificity in patients with comorbid ADHD and anxiety, and concluded that their application may be inadequate to differentially diagnose patients affected by both conditions. Based on their findings, the ...

Zyprexa is a medical product for the treatment and prevention of schizophrenia and acute psychosis. It contains the active ingredient Olanzapine which belongs to a group of atypical antipsychotics.. Zyprexa is the strongest representative of this medical group which acts quickly even during the severest forms of the mental disorders. It can be used by patients during acute attacks. If this medicine is ineffective, it is necessary to use conventional antipsychotics medications which have less intense therapeutic effect but help during chronic disorders.. The mechanism of the action of Zyprexa is related to the inhibition of the psychomotor agitation. Olanzapine blocks dopamine receptors of the brain, provides a sedative action and lowers an emotional superexcitation. There is also a reduction of the hostility and suspicion which are met in patients with schizophrenia. This medicine not only lowers the symptomatic of the acute mental disorders but also a risk of the relapse by restoring a chemical ...
Heightening and extreme shifts between moods is characteristic of Bipolar Disorder. Patients may exhibit symptoms that are a noticeable change from their usual behavior. Practitioners may initially suspect Major Depression if the patient is experiencing depression after a manic episode. The symptoms may include: Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity, decreased need for sleep, more talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking, flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing, distractibility, increase in goal-directed activity or psychomotor agitation, and excessive involvement in activities that have high potential for painful consequences.. For members who present with manic and/or depressive symptoms and have not been diagnosed with Bipolar or another behavioral health condition, refer the member to an in-network specialist who can further assess. Providers can follow these steps with their members:. Assess: Use a standard tool to assess the severity of the members mood ...
Cymbalta is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The efficacy of Cymbalta has been established in 8- and 9-week placebo-controlled trials of outpatients who met DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder..

The effectiveness of Cymbalta in hospitalized patients with major depressive disorder has not been studied. The effectiveness of Cymbalta in long-term use for major depressive disorder, that is, for more than ...
Now, on to the interesting topic. One of my cases is a 16 year old girl who was diagnosed with Undersocialized Conduct Disorder, Aggressive Type. The biopyschosocial also talked about some reported psychosis. When I met with the teen for the first time, she was quite fascinating and a bit scary in her perception/attitude. She does not like school and does her schoolwork only when she feels like it. She likes to fight with people and has no interest in friends. She socially isolates, sits in her bedroom alone and talks to herself. She reported hearing command hallucinations, random voices that make her laugh and sometimes tell her to do dangerous things, like fight and do drugs. She denied any drug use or any thoughts/commands of self-harm. She also mentioned going to her boyfriends house and just sitting in the front room alone. I noticed she had psychomotor agitation as she constantly used her hands during the session. She made little eye contact with me and giggled to self occasionally. ...

Case report: Here, we present the case of a premature female infant born at 33 weeks gestational age, with neonatal meningitis. The onset was marked by fever, in the 5th day of life, while in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The patient was commenced on Gentamicin and Ampicillin, but her clinical condition worsened. Psychomotor agitation and food refusal developed in the 10th day of life, and a diagnosis of bacterial meningitis was made based on clinical and cerebrospinal fluid findings. A strain of Elizabethkingia meningoseptica sensitive to Vancomycin, Rifampicin and Clarithromycin was isolated from cerebrospinal fluid. First-line antibiotic therapy with Meropenem and Vancomycin was adjusted by replacing Meronem with Piperacillin/Tazobactam and Rifampicin. The patients clinical condition improved, although some isolated febrile episodes were still present. The cerebrospinal fluid was normalized after 6 weeks of antibiotic treatment, although periventriculitis and tetraventricular ...

Agitation reported in nearly 50% of patients with Alzheimers disease FDA Fast Track designation previously received for AXS-05 for Alzheimers disease agitation. Second indication for AXS-05 in late-stage clinical trials. NEW YORK, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:AXSM), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapies for the management of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, enrolled the first patient in the ADVANCE-1 (Addressing Dementia Via Agitation-Centered Evaluation 1) study, a Phase 2/3 trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of AXS-05 for the treatment of Alzheimers disease (AD) agitation. AXS-05 is a combination of dextromethorphan (an NMDA receptor antagonist, sigma-1 receptor agonist, and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) and bupropion (a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor, which also increases the bioavailability of dextromethorphan).. Agitation is one of the most distressing and ...
Background: Agitation is common across neuropsychiatric disorders and contributes to disability, institutionalization, and diminished quality of life for patients and their caregivers. There is no consensus definition of agitation and no widespread agreement on what elements should be included in the syndrome. The International Psychogeriatric Association formed an Agitation Definition Work Group (ADWG) to develop a provisional consensus definition of agitation in patients with cognitive disorders that can be applied in epidemiologic, non-interventional clinical, pharmacologic, non-pharmacologic interventional, and neurobiological studies. A consensus definition will facilitate communication and cross-study comparison and may have regulatory applications in drug development programs. Methods: The ADWG developed a transparent process using a combination of electronic, face-to-face, and survey-based strategies to develop a consensus based on agreement of a majority of participants. Nine-hundred ...

Published today by US journal PLoS ONE, the findings, while confirming that the drug Memantine improves cognitive functions of the brain such as memory, suggest that it is no more effective at reducing significant agitation than placebo. More than 450,000 people in the UK suffer from the form of dementia known as Alzheimers disease. Many are agitated and, for example, pace continually, become physically or verbally agressive, or scream persistently. As well as harming quality of life for the patient, agitation places enormous strain on relationships with family and carers, and often results in institutionalisation.. Feelings of agitation are an enormous problem in Alzheimers dementia , creating a costly and distressing burden both for patients and those who care for them, said Dr Chris Fox of Norwich Medical School at UEA, who led the research.. Memantine is licensed for use in many countries including the UK, the US and in Europe. Previous restrospective studies have suggested it could help ...

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Attitudes toward Change BECAUSE THERAPEUTICS was so central to both the professional iden- tity and the daily tasks of nineteenth-century American physicians, the process by which it changed was inevitably complexand disturbing to them. Looking hard at the way they regarded change and at the place and meaning it held in their values and institutions helps make sense of that process. One key to understanding their attitudes toward change is to recognize how the structure of medical theory minimized the disruptiveness of permutations in therapeutic practice, a disruptiveness that the professions institutions further mollified. Another is to see that most of the factors that molded the individual practitioners decision on whether or not to bring change into his practice exerted dual actions. He derived incentives for both stability and innovation from sources of medical instruction such as schools, apprenticeship, textbooks, and ...

Lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan among others, is a benzodiazepine medication. It is used to treat anxiety disorders, trouble sleeping, active seizures including status epilepticus, alcohol withdrawal, and chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, as well as for surgery to interfere with memory formation and to sedate those who are being mechanically ventilated. While it can be used for severe agitation, midazolam is usually preferred. It is also used, along with other treatments, for acute coronary syndrome due to cocaine use. It can be given by mouth or as an injection into a muscle or vein. When given by injection onset of effects is between one and thirty minutes and effects last for up to a day.. Common side effects include weakness, sleepiness, low blood pressure, and a decreased effort to breathe. When given intravenously the person should be closely monitored. Among those who are depressed there may be an increased risk of suicide. With long-term use larger doses may be ...

Anton Porsteinsson: Agitation is quite common in people with AD. It has a huge impact on their quality of life, as well as their family members and caregivers quality of life.. RWHC: Prior to your CitAD Randomized Clinical Trial, why had previous pharmacological treatment options been deemed unsatisfactory?. AP: A number of medications have been studied over time for this condition, including atypical and conventional anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers. But the efficacy they showed, if any, was modest at best. At the same time, these medications have serious potential complications such as increases in cerebrovascular events, sedation, falls, Parkinsonism and even increased mortality.. RWHC: Your trial focused on patients receiving psychosocial intervention. Why is psychosocial intervention important for AD patients?. AP: Medications should rarely be the first line of treatment for AD patients. Not everyone needs to be treated with medications. Thats why its important to evaluate the root ...

OBJECTIVE: Little is known about how often bipolar depressive episodes are accompanied by subsyndromal manic symptoms in bipolar I and II disorders. The authors sought to determine the frequency and clinical correlates of manic symptoms during episodes of bipolar depression. METHOD: From among 4,107 enrollees in the National Institute of Mental Healths Systematic Treatment Enhancement Program for Bipolar Disorder (STEP-BD), 1,380 individuals met criteria for bipolar I or II depressive syndromes at the time of enrollment and were assessed for concomitant manic symptoms. Illness characteristics were compared in patients with pure bipolar depressed episodes and those with mixed depressive presentations. RESULTS: Two-thirds of the subjects with bipolar depressed episodes had concomitant manic symptoms, most often distractibility, flight of ideas or racing thoughts, and psychomotor agitation. Patients with any mixed features were significantly more likely than those with pure bipolar depressed episodes to
Objective: To determine whether environmental temperature, agitation, neuroleptic use, mental retardation, and affective disorders were risk factors for neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS).. Method: Cases and age- and sex-matched psychiatric controls admitted to a regional acute psychiatric unit over a 10-year period.. Results: Both uni- and multivariate analysis revealed statistically significant differences between patients with NMS (n=15) and controls (n=45) with regard to the presence of mental retardation, psychomotor agitation, and a number of variables relating to neuroleptic use (newly introduced or increased, intramuscular administration, and dosage). We found no differences between NMS patients and psychiatric controls in respect of changes in environmental temperature.. Conclusion: Our study supports the need for caution when using intramuscularly administered, abruptly increasing, high-dose neuroleptics, particularly in mentally retarded or agitated patients, regardless of ...
In the management of alcohol withdrawal, a benzodiazepine can reduce psychomotor agitation and, used at an early stage, it may prevent progression to more severe symptoms of withdrawal including convulsions and delirium tremens. For less severe symptoms, the benzodiazepine is given orally either as a fixed regimen of tapering doses or according to withdrawal symptoms as and when they arise (symptom-triggered therapy).. The long-acting benzodiazepines chlordiazepoxide and diazepam are licensed for the management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms; both allow smooth tapering down of the dose.. A benzodiazepine can also be used for managing severe symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and may be of value in managing seizures and the potentially life-threatening condition of delirium tremens (characterised by hallucinations, disorientation, agitation, tremor, severe tachycardia, hypertension, fever, drenching sweats, and fluid and electrolyte disturbances). These symptoms are treated in an in-patient setting ...
Viloxazine (trade names Vivalan, Emovit, Vivarint and Vicilan) is a morpholine derivative and is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (NRI). It was used as an antidepressant in some European countries, and produced a stimulant effect that is similar to the amphetamines, except without any signs of dependence. It was discovered and brought to market in 1976 by Imperial Chemical Industries and was withdrawn from the market in the early 2000s for business reasons. Viloxazine hydrochloride was used in some European countries for the treatment of clinical depression. Side effects included nausea, vomiting, insomnia, loss of appetite, increased erythrocyte sedimentation, EKG and EEG anomalies, epigastric pain, diarrhea, constipation, vertigo, orthostatic hypotension, edema of the lower extremities, dysarthria, tremor, psychomotor agitation, mental confusion, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone, increased transaminases, seizure, (there were three cases worldwide, and most animal ...
Mass hysteria is characterized by the rapid spread of conversion disorder, a condition involving the appearance of bodily complaints for which there is no organic basis. In such episodes, psychological distress is converted or channeled into physical symptoms. There are two common types: anxiety hysteria and motor hysteria. The former is of shorter duration, usually lasting a day, and is triggered by the sudden perception of a threatening agent, most commonly a strange odor. Symptoms typically include headache, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, and general weakness. Motor hysteria is prevalent in intolerable social situations such as strict school and religious settings where discipline is excessive. Symptoms include trance-like states, melodramatic acts of rebellion known as histrionics, and what physicians term psychomotor agitation (whereby pent-up anxiety built up over a long period results in disruptions to the nerves or neurons that send messages to the muscles, triggering temporary ...

For the study, reported in the Feb. 19 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, Constantine Lyketsos, M.D., M.H.S., and his colleagues recruited 186 patients with Alzheimers who showed a collection of symptoms including emotional distress, excessive movement, aggression, disruptive irritability and disinhibition. None experienced adequate symptom relief with non-medical therapies, and some experienced failed treatment with antipsychotic drugs. Though antipsychotics are often used as first-line medications for Alzheimers-related agitation, they significantly increase the risk of strokes, heart attacks and death, Lyketsos says.. At the start of the study, patients also underwent tests to define the extent of their agitation, memory and other cognitive skills, and their caregivers stress levels, a factor strongly linked to the well-being of those with Alzheimers. The patients were then separated into two groups. For the next nine weeks, about half took increasing doses of ...

The review now contains data from nine trials (total n = 582) reporting on five comparisons. Due to risk of bias, small size of trials, indirectness of outcome measures and a paucity of investigated and reported pragmatic outcomes, evidence was graded as very-low quality.

Data were available for our other main outcomes of agitation or aggression, needing restraint, and incidence of adverse effects.. Risperidone versus haloperidol (up to 24 hours follow-up). For the outcome, specific behaviour - agitation, no clear difference was found between risperidone and haloperidol in terms of efficacy, measured as at least 50% reduction in the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale - Psychotic Agitation Sub-score (PANSS-PAS) (RR 1.04, 95% CI 0.86 to 1.26; participants = 124; studies = 1; very low-quality evidence) and no effect ...

Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.. When one thinks of the symptoms of Alzheimers disease and other dementias, the first thing that typically comes to mind is the progressive decline in memory and other cognitive abilities. While these cognitive deficits are certainly important and indeed a defining component of dementia, the noncognitive disruptions that often accompany these conditions can also be of considerable relevance to the patients and the caregivers quality of life and functioning. As most caregivers and clinicians are well aware, many, if not most, patients with dementias manifest psychiatric symptoms (depression, delusions, and hallucinations) as well as behavioral disturbances (agitation) during at least some parts of the course of their illness. ...

If you have been taking this medication for a while, it should be stopped gradually as directed by your doctor.. Anxiety or restlessness: An increase in daytime anxiety or restlessness has been observed during treatment with temazepam.. Complex sleep-related behaviours: Occasionally, people taking this medication have experienced instances of driving, preparing food and eating, making phone calls and other activities while sleeping. These events are generally not remembered. Taking temazepam along with other medications that cause drowsiness, including alcohol, appears to increase the risk for these behaviours. If you observe these behaviours in a family member who is taking this medication, or become aware of them yourself, contact your doctor as soon as possible..

As already mentioned in the first section of this manual, there are a few drugs available on prescription which may have a beneficial effect on the person with dementia, particularly in the early to mid stages of the disease. The following information is about non-medical treatments and therapies which may lead to an improvement in the quality of life and/or level of functioning of the person with dementia and in some cases of the carer. However, the emphasis in this section is on the possible benefits to people with dementia.. The main benefits include relaxation, calmness, less agitation, less anxiety, relief of depression[1], improved alertness and less restlessness. Certain techniques or approaches are likely to be more suited to some people than others. For example, one person may appreciate touch whereas another may feel uneasy about this. Some people prefer a group approach whereas others like something more personal or private. Many of these techniques contribute towards increasing self ...

Additionally, the specific symptom type must be reported "with attacks or seizures."[14] Some individuals with PNES have carried an erroneous diagnosis of epilepsy. On average, it takes seven years to receive a proper diagnosis. The differential diagnosis of PNES firstly involves ruling out epilepsy as the cause of the seizure episodes, along with other organic causes of non-epileptic seizures, including syncope, migraine, vertigo, anoxia, hypoglycemia, and stroke. However, between 5-20% of people with PNES also have epilepsy.[15] Frontal lobe seizures can be mistaken for PNES, though these tend to have shorter duration, stereotyped patterns of movements and occurrence during sleep.[16] Next, an exclusion of factitious disorder (a subconscious somatic symptom disorder, where seizures are caused by psychological reasons) and malingering (simulating seizures intentionally for conscious personal gain - such as monetary compensation or avoidance of criminal punishment) is conducted. Finally other ...

ICD-10 is an international statistical classification produced by the World Health Organization. It is used in health care and related industries in several countries around the world. Some have gone on to develop their own national enhancements, building off the international version of the classification. The fifth chapter of ICD-10 contains the International Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders. It is actually the official mental health system for the US as well, but even many professionals do not realize this due to the dominance of the DSM.[1] WHO have made Chapter V available as two separate publications.[2] The Clinical descriptions and diagnostic guidelines (or "Blue Book") is for clinical and general educational use. The Diagnostic criteria for research (or "Green Book") is intended for research purposes, and to be used in conjunction with the guidelines within it. ...
It is thought that people who suffer from this disorder, suffer from a dysfunction in the release of the chemical dopamine in the nucleus accumbens, the brain's primary reward center. This part of the brain is thought to play a role in pleasurable activities, including laughter, addiction, and music. Additionally, it is thought that depression, drug addiction, high levels of prolactin, low testosterone, and uses of certain medications might play a role in inhibiting dopamine. A spinal cord injury or chronic fatigue syndrome might also occasionally cause this disorder.[2] Age may also be a cause of this disorder.[3] A sudden-onset sexual anhedonia can also be a symptom of sensory neuropathy, which is most commonly the result of pyridoxine toxicity[4] (e.g., from large doses of vitamin B6 supplements). In this case, the sexual dysfunction promptly resolves spontaneously once the B6 supplementation is stopped. Increased serum prolactin (PRL)[5] concentration in patients brains from psychiatric ...
There is evidence that there may be neurological indicators of early onset dysthymia. There are several brain structures (corpus callosum and frontal lobe) that are different in women with dysthymia than in those without dysthymia. This may indicate that there is a developmental difference between these two groups.[16] Another study, which used fMRI techniques to assess the differences between individuals with dysthymia and other people, found additional support for neurological indicators of the disorder. This study found several areas of the brain that function differently. The amygdala (associated with processing negative emotions such as fear) was more activated in dysthymia patients. The study also observed increased activity in the insula (which is associated with sad emotions). Finally, there was increased activity in the cingulate gyrus (which serves as the bridge between attention and emotion).[17] A study comparing healthy individuals to people with dysthymia indicates there are other ...

Four motor symptoms are considered cardinal in PD: tremor, slowness of movement (bradykinesia), rigidity, and postural instability.[29] The most common presenting sign is a coarse slow tremor of the hand at rest which disappears during voluntary movement of the affected arm and in the deeper stages of sleep.[29] It typically appears in only one hand, eventually affecting both hands as the disease progresses.[29] Frequency of PD tremor is between 4 and 6 hertz (cycles per second). A feature of tremor is pill-rolling, the tendency of the index finger and thumb to touch and perform together a circular movement.[29][30] The term derives from the similarity between the movement of people with PD and the early pharmaceutical technique of manually making pills.[30] Bradykinesia (slowness of movement) is found in every case of PD, and is due to disturbances in motor planning of movement initiation, and associated with difficulties along the whole course of the movement process, from planning to ...

Letty Cottin Pogrebin, a founding editor of Ms. magazine, diagnosed America as having an "epidemic of paedophobia", saying that, "though most of us make exceptions for our own offspring, we do not seem particularly warm-hearted towards other peoples' children."[7] One author suggests that the cause of the fear of children in academia specifically extends from adults' distinct awareness of the capacity of children: "Children embarrass us because they point ever too cleverly and clearly to our denial of personal, material, and maternal history."[8] One report suggests that the source of current trends in the fear of children have a specific source: James Q. Wilson, a professor at UCLA's School of Management, who in 1975 helped inaugurate the current climate of pedophobia when he said "a critical mass of younger persons... creates an explosive increase in the amount of crime."[9] Sociologists have situated "contemporary fears about children and childhood" as "contributing to the ongoing social ...

Throughout history, people with developmental disabilities have been viewed as incapable and incompetent in their capacity for decision-making and development. Until the Enlightenment in Europe, care and asylum was provided by families and the Church (in monasteries and other religious communities), focusing on the provision of basic physical needs such as food, shelter and clothing. Stereotypes such as the dimwitted village idiot, and potentially harmful characterizations (such as demonic possession for people with epilepsy) were prominent in social attitudes of the time. Early in the twentieth century, the eugenics movement became popular throughout the world. This led to the forced sterilization and prohibition of marriage for the developmentally disabled in most of the developed world and was later used by Hitler as rationale for the mass murder of mentally challenged individuals during the Holocaust. The eugenics movement was later thought to be seriously flawed and in violation of human ...
