Conclusion Results provide insights into modifiable risk factors for morning fatigue. These risk factors can be used to develop more targeted interventions. Implications for Practice Patients in the high and very high morning fatigue classes experienced high symptom and comorbidity burdens and significant decrements in functional status. Using this information, clinicians can identify patients who are at an increased risk for higher levels of morning fatigue and prescribe interventions to improve this devastating symptom.

Methods Data from 247 patients were analyzed in this cross-sectional study. Latent class analysis was used to identify depressive symptom clusters, using 9 depressive symptoms from the Patient Health Questionna...

In this study, we involved drug-naïve patients with first-episode MDD with (n = 35) and without (n = 40) AVH and healthy controls (n = 50).Whole-brain resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging data were acquired and gFCD was calculated and compared among groups. We found the following gFCD alterations that were shared by both MDD groups: (1) decreased gFCD in the bilateral postcentral gyrus, precentral gyrus, insular cortices and occipital lobe; and (2) increased gFCD in the left middle cingulate cortex. More importantly, we found AVH-specific gFCD changes in patients with MDD: increased gFCD in ...

While different groups of medication are available for their treatment, a substantial proportion of patients remain refractory to pharmacotherapy. The reason for this variation in the individual response to treatment has yet to be understood; however genetic factors have been shown to play an important role. Up to now there have been limited publications about pharmacogenetics of anxiety disorders, compared to studies in...
