Unexpected effect of Zolpidem in a patient with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Unexpected effect of Zolpidem in a patient with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Asian J Psychiatr. 2019 Jul 08;44:68-69 Authors: Furuhashi Y Abstract Sleep-related eating disorder (SRED) is characterized by recurrent episodes of eating during the night, accompanied by partial consciousness and followed by limited recall. Zolpidem is a sedative-hypnotic drug commonly used to treat sleep disorders. Zolpidem reduces sleep latency and increases the total time of sleep. Here, we described a case of a patient with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who suffered from zolpidem-induced SRED. The symptoms disappeared when the use of zolpidem as discontinuation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first documented case of SRED induced by the use of zolpidem in a patient with ADHD.

Abstract The goals of the health maintenance visit in school-aged children (five to 12 years) are promoting health, detecting disease, and counseling to prevent injury and future health problems. During the visit, the physician should address patient and parent/caregiver concerns and ask about emergency department or hospital care since the last visit; lifestyle habits (diet, physical activity, daily screen time, secondhand smoke exposure, hours of sleep per night, dental care, safety habits); and school performance. Poor school performance may indicate problems such as learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyp...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The purpose of this article is to present current information on the phenomenology, epidemiology, comorbidities, and pathophysiology of tic disorders and discuss therapy options. It is hoped that a greater understanding of each of these components will provide clinicians with the necessary information to deliver thoughtful and optimal care to affected individuals. RECENT FINDINGS Recent advances include the finding that Tourette syndrome is likely due to a combination of several different genes, both low-effect and larger-effect variants, plus environmental factors. Pathophysiologically, increasing e...

Authors: Geoffroy PA, Micoulaud Franchi JA, Lopez R, Schroder CM, membres du consensus Mélatonine SFRMS Abstract Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland at night. This hormone has many physiological functions, the main one being to synchronise individuals' biological rhythms. Exogenous melatonin has the same chronobiotic action, even at small doses (0.125mg). In addition, a sleep-inducing (soporific) action appears to occur in a dose-effect relationship, i.e. as the dose increases. In psychiatric disorders, these two effects could have interesting applications in clinical practice. The French ins...

Conclusions: The management of individuals with comorbid ADHD and anxiety disorders could be challenging for clinicians, and assessing the developmental course is crucial in order to shed light on individualised treatment. Keypoints The comorbidity between ADHD and anxiety disorders changes the clinical presentation, the prognosis and treatment of patients with ADHD across lifespan. ADHD and anxiety disorders shared common neurobiological dysfunctions but have also different neurobiological abnormalities suggesting that they are different diagnoses. These patients are less likely to benefit from cognitive behavioural treat...

In conclusion, this review highlights the importance for clinicians to investigate for the presence of chronic nightmares along with other sleep difficulties (most commonly, insomnia and sleep apnea), to consider the potential influence of nightmares on the course of the primary mental disorder, and to be prepared to grant access to treatments targeting nightmares.

AbstractObjectiveSleep problems are common in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The presence of sleep problems at the time of presentation for ADHD treatment could impact the level of improvement in ADHD symptoms or executive function occurring with ADHD pharmacotherapy. Therefore, we examined the influence of baseline sleep quality on the effects of SHP465 mixed amphetamine salts (MAS) extended-release.MethodsAdults (18 –55 years) withDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision-defined ADHD and baseline ADHD Rating Scale IV (ADHD-RS-IV) total s...

People living with autism are sensitive to the social world and the environment in general. They could experience great difficulties in social situations, have anxieties, fears, phobias, or sensory sensitivities. On the other hand, they could be on good terms with technologies: social stories apps can navigate them in difficult situations, virtual and augmented reality can offer a safe space for them to exercise, and artificial intelligence helps in early detection. We scoured the ground carefully and hereby present you the intersections of autism and digital health. Raymond Babbitt’s heritage and the chronicles ...
