OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the psychometrics of the translated Chinese Depression and Somatic Symptoms Scale (DSSS) in Americans. PROCEDURES: A total of 491 nonclinical but symptomatic ethnically-diverse individuals completed the DSSS and Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D)...

OBJECTIVE: To measure the incidence and risk factors for fluoroquinolone (ciprofloxacin, moxifloxacin, and levofloxacin)-associated psychosis or delirium in a veteran population. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted in the Western New York Veterans Affairs Health System (2005-2013). Participants were hospitalized veterans receiving a fluoroquinolone for at least 48 hours (n = 631). Cases of delirium or psychosis were defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV criteria, and the Naranjo scale (score ≥ 1) was used to determine the probability of the adverse drug reaction being related to fluoroquinolones...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have investigated the prevalence and risk factors of depression in individuals with type 2 diabetes. However, few studies have investigated the prevalence and risk factors for type 2 diabetes in major depression. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence and risk factors of type 2 diabetes in a large sample of individuals with major depression. METHODS: Data from 703 individuals with major depression recruited from the research database of the sleep laboratory of the Erasme Hospital were analysed...

BACKGROUND: Some psychotropic medications have been associated with prolongation of the QT interval and QT prolongation, especially in those with medical illness, and are linked to lethal ventricular arrhythmias, such as Torsades de Pointes (TdP). In 2013, we published a review of QT prolongation, TdP, and psychotropic medications. OBJECTIVE: We provide an update over the past 5 years on the specific concerns most relevant to clinicians who see medically ill patients...

BACKGROUND: In 2008 Food and Drug Administration issued a warning regarding a possible association between leukotriene-modifying agents and suicidality. OBJECTIVE: The warning remains controversial and this review of literature is an attempt to examine the evidence on the matter. METHODS: Literature search on PubMed. RESULTS: The data supporting a relationship between leukotriene-modifying agents and suicidality comes primarily from reviews of individual safety reports in adverse event databases; it is subject to considerable reporting bias and does not control for confounding factors...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive impairment including attention deficits, disorientation, memory impairment, language disturbance, and impaired visuospatial ability are core symptoms of delirium. The Severe Cognitive Impairment Rating Scale (SCIRS) was developed to assess cognition in patients with severe dementia, but may also be useful in elderly people with delirium. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the use of the SCIRS to assess cognition in elderly patients with delirium. METHODS: We recruited 147 participants, aged ≥65 years, referred for psychiatric consultation at a tertiary-care university hospital...

OBJECTIVE: Our study was to determine which psychosocial factors interfere with patients reaching sustained virologic response (SVR), a marker for hepatitis C virus eradication. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed between January 6, 2015 and February 24, 2016. The primary outcome was to assess which social and psychological factors may interfere with patients reaching SVR. SVR was defined as having an undetectable viral load 12 weeks after the completion of the treatment regimen...

BACKGROUND: Physical and mental health is dependent on the environment, and feeding is a prime example of this environmental exchange. While the hypothalamus controls both feeding behavior and the stress response, the integration of the neural control centers and the peripheral gut allows for disruption in the gastrointestinal systems and dysfunctional communication to the brain. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this review is to familiarize clinicians with the physiology controlling feeding behavior and its implications for psychiatric conditions, such as anorexia nervosa and depression...

OBJECTIVE: To understand whether high-cost users of medical care with and without comorbid mental illness or addiction differ in terms of their sociodemographic and health characteristics. Unique characteristics would warrant different considerations for interventions and service design aimed at reducing unnecessary health care utilization and associated costs. METHODS: From the top 10% of Ontarians ranked by total medical care costs during fiscal year 2011/2012 (N = 314,936), prior 2-year mental illness or addiction diagnoses were determined from administrative data...
