Sample text

Propranolol C. Amantadine D. Dantrolene E. Dialysis F. 13 A 25-year-old man with bipolar disorder took too many pills, had two seizures, and is now in a coma. 14 A 38-year-old schizophrenic woman feels restless and cannot sit still; her physician states that this behavior is caused by her medication. 15 A 32-year-old woman with panic disorder and anxiety took an overdose of diazepam and is taken to the emergency department with somnolence and hypoventilation. 16 A 30-year-old man being treated for schizophrenia complains of tremor and a slow gait.

One medication should be discontinued for at least 5 weeks before the other is initiated to avoid serotonin syndrome. ➤ Serotonin syndrome is characterized by (in order of appearance) diarrhea, restlessness, extreme agitation, hyperreflexia, autonomic instabiility, myoclonus, seizures, hyperthermia, rigidity, delirium, coma, and death. ➤ The most common side effects of SSRIs are gastrointestinal disturbance and sexual dysfunction. ➤ Individuals taking MAOIs should avoid aged cheese, red wine, liver, and smoked foods (tyramine) or an acute hypertensive crisis can ensue.

However, the patient specifically requests another type of medication because of his previous discomfort with the side effects. Current first-line treatments for patients with major depression, SSRIs or SSNRIs, are thus the logical choice; they have fewer side effects and are safer. Table 1–1 lists the criteria for major depression, recurrent. 47 CLINICAL CASES Table 1–1 DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA FOR MAJOR DEPRESSIVE DISORDER, RECURRENT Two or more episodes of major depression diagnosed by the following: Five or more of the following symptoms have been present most of the time for at least 2 wk: • Depressed mood • Anhedonia • Significant weight change or change in appetite • Insomnia or hypersomnia • Psychomotor agitation or retardation • Fatigue or loss of energy • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt • Decreased ability to concentrate or indecisiveness • Thoughts of death or suicidal ideation There has never been a manic, hypomanic, or mixed episode.
