• Depression

  • establish
  • In determining whether the psychotic disturbance is due to a general medical condition, the clinician must first establish the presence of a general medical condition. (health.am)
  • Further, the clinician must establish that the psychotic disturbance is etiologically related to the general medical condition through a physiological mechanism. (health.am)
  • commonly
  • Studies show that a true brief psychotic episode that does not progress to another mental illness occurs in anywhere from one to four per 100,000 people, more commonly in women than in men. (medicinenet.com)
  • suggests
  • Evidence from the literature that suggests that there can be a direct association between the general medical condition in question and the development of psychotic symptoms can provide a useful context in the assessment of a particular situation. (health.am)
  • This report suggests a potential Ritalin Psychotic Disorder side effect(s) that can have serious consequences. (patientsville.com)
  • Another theory suggests that the disorder is caused by poor coping skills, as a defense against or escape from a particularly frightening or stressful situation. (wikipedia.org)
  • general medical
  • Psychotic Disorder Due to a General Medical Condition is generally not diagnosed if the individual maintains reality testing for the hallucination and appreciates that the perceptual experiences result from the general medical condition. (health.am)
  • Although there are no infallible guidelines for determining whether the relationship between the psychotic disturbance and the general medical condition is etiological, several considerations provide some guidance in this area. (health.am)
  • periods
  • The disorder can be triggered and exacerbated by social and environmental factors, with episodes becoming more apparent in periods of high stress. (wikipedia.org)
  • findings
  • In light of associations between bipolar and circadian abnormalities(such as decreased need for sleep and increased sleep latency), polymorphisms in the CLOCK gene have been tested for association, although findings have been inconsistent, and one meta analysis has reported no association with either bipolar or major depressive disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • trigger
  • Childbirth may trigger the disorder in some women. (wikipedia.org)
  • Experiencing an intense religious experience may trigger a psychotic episode in those who are vulnerable to them, because religion often requires a believer to suspend their usual idea of what is possible and impossible. (wikipedia.org)
