Chronic psychosis related to benzydamine hydrochloride abuse.

Chronic psychosis related to benzydamine hydrochloride abuse. Neurocase. 2019 May 14;:1-3 Authors: Gürü M, Şafak Y, Cengiz GF, Kuru E, Örsel S Abstract Benzydamine hydrochloride is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic and antipyretic effects. In those who use medicines containing this agent at high doses (500-3000 mg), some adverse effects such as hallucinosis, stimulant effects in the central nervous system, paranoia, and convulsions can be seen. The drug is vulnerable to abuse because of the stimulant effects on the central nervous system. In this paper, we present a young male patient with symptoms of psychosis due to benzydamine hydrochloride abuse. He was admitted to the psychiatry outpatient clinic with visual hallucinations, fear, and insomnia. His symptoms started after taking 10 tablets of benzydamine hydrochloride (500 mg) 6 months ago, which continued for 1-2 days and spontaneously resolved. The patient used high doses of the drug 3-4 times over a period of 3 months. Although his last drug intake was 3 months ago, his symptoms continued at the time of admission to the clinic. A neurologic examination and detailed laboratory tests of the patient revealed no evidence of a cause for psychotic symptoms. The patient was scheduled to undergo oral antipsychotic therapy. Although similar cases have been reported in the literature, this is the only case in which psychosis was still present despite discontinuation of the...

Long vent incoming. Please disregard the ironic screenname. I usually score well above average on our weekly exams. This past week I became super motivated to do as well as I possibly can. I studied 34 hours since Monday a.m. just for ochem. I followed the study guide to a T. Studying became all that I do. I wasn't able to get through all the material as I was being so thorough. I did learn about 80% of the material completely. I developed insomnia and slept 2.5 hrs last night and 4hrs... Just failed an Ochem exam.

Neuroimaging studies revealed that emotion and cognition dysfunction after sleep deprivation is associated with the disturbance of the salience network. However, the age effect on the functional connectivity changes of the network after sleep deprivation remains unclear. The current study investigated the functional connectivity changes of the right anterior insula after partial sleep deprivation in young and old adults by using resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging. We found a significant age × deprivation interaction effect on the functional connectivity between the right ventral anterior insula and t...
