Psychiatric manifestations have a high prevalence in MS patients and may worsen the illness progression and the patients' quality of life (QoL). Depression is a highly prevalent condition in MS patients, associated with poorer adherence to treatment, decreased functional status and QoL, and increased suicide risk.

Susceptibility to combined depressive and manic syndromes correlates strongly with arousal-related symptoms including impulsivity, anxiety and agitation. This relationship to a driven, “mixed” activation-depression state, generated by a life-long process, was described in classical times. Course of illness in mixed states includes increased episode frequency, duration, earlier onset, and association with addiction- and trauma/stress-related disorders. Mixed episodes have catec holamine and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical activity increased beyond nonmixed states of similar symptom severity. These properti...

They are associated with major increases of risk of suicidal behaviors. The authors reviewed the association of suicidal behavior with mixed features in both major depressive and bipolar disorders, as well as potentially relevant adverse effects of antidepressant treatment and use of alternative treatments aimed at minimizing agitation and suicidal risk.
