Authors: Trivedi MH Abstract Antidepressant medications and psychotherapies can help many patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), yet millions of primary care patients do not receive effective treatment. Patients with MDD often experience side effects, inadequate response, and residual symptoms that interfere with functioning, all of which can lead to discontinuation. To improve patient outcomes, clinicians can implement strategies of measurement-based care to regularly assess depressive symptoms, treatment adherence, and adverse effects to make informed treatment decisions. Patient education and involvement...

Authors: Trivedi MH Abstract Depression is one of the most common mental disorders, affecting more than 300 million people of all ages globally, and is now the leading cause of disability. Despite the availability of effective psychological and pharmacologic treatments, depression recognition and treatment rates remain low. Clinicians can improve the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of depression by using a measurement-based care approach. The systematic use of validated screening tools can improve recognition and diagnosis. The US Preventive Services Task force recommends routine screening of depression in ad...

Authors: Lindgren M, Holm M, Markkula N, Härkänen T, Dickerson F, Yolken RH, Suvisaari J Abstract Common infectious agents, such as Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) and several human herpes viruses, have been linked to increased risk of self-harm. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between self-harm and seropositivity to T. gondii, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Herpes Simplex virus Type 1 (HSV-1), and Cytomegalovirus (CMV). IgM and IgG antibodies to these infections were measured in the Health 2000 project nationally representative of the whole Finnish adult population, and 6250 participan...

Lithium is the gold-standard treatment for bipolar disorder, is highly effective in major depressive disorder, and is being investigated for therapeutic benefits in dementia, stroke, and even cancer. Approximately 350,000 Canadians use lithium and more could benefit. Despite this, clinicians are avoiding lithium, largely due to fear of renal toxicity, including irreversible chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus (NDI) occurs in 20% of lithium users and independently predicts a 2-3 times increased risk of CKD.
