Major Depressive disorder (MDD) is the most common comorbidity with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); more than 50% of OCD patients meet lifetime criteria for MDD or dysthymia[1]. Depression can significantly worsen OCD treatment outcomes[2] and elevate the risk for suicide[3]. While the multi-center-tested and FDA indicated deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) treatment for OCD uses the H7 coil, to target dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC) and anterior cingulate cortex (ACC)[4], the treatment for MDD uses the H1 coil to target the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) bilaterally with preference to the left[5].

Withdrawal symptoms after discontinuation of antidepressants are common and have long been known. Typical symptoms after dose reduction or discontinuation of antidepressants are dizziness, drowsiness, headache, flu-like symptoms, hyperarousal, imbalance, insomnia, irritability, and nausea. Rebound, relapse, or recurrence associated with the underlying mental disorder may also occur. The occurrence of obsessive-compulsive symptoms (OCS) following abrupt discontinuation of antidepressants have not yet been reported. Here we report the development of OCS (obsessional suicidal thoughts) in a patient with major depressive disor...

Comorbidity is the presence of one or more additional conditions co-occurring with a primary condition. In this episode, host schizophrenic Rachel Star Withers with her cohost Gabe Howard will be discussing comorbidity with schizophrenia. Comorbidity is associated with worse health outcomes, more complex clinical management and increased health care costs. Occupational therapist and host of the podcast Occupied, Brock Cook, will be joining us to discuss ways that he works with people with schizophrenia to manage multiple health issues.  Highlights from “Comorbidity with Schizophrenia” Episode [01:28] What ...

Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Petya Vicheva, Matthew Butler, Paul ShotboltAbstractDeep brain stimulation (DBS) is considered a promising intervention for treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder (trOCD). We conducted a systematic search to investigate the efficacy and safety of DBS for OCD. Primary outcomes included the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), adverse events (AE), and quality of life. We assessed affective state, global functioning, cognition, and tolerability as secondary outcomes. Eight studies comprising 80 pati...

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder featuring repetitive intrusive thoughts and behaviors associated with a significant handicap. Of patients, 20% are refractory to medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. Refractory OCD is associated with suicidal behavior and significant degradation of social and professional functioning, with high health costs. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has been proposed as a reversible and controllable method to treat refractory patients, with meta-analyses showing 60% response rate following DBS, whatever the target: anterior limb of the internal capsule (ALIC), v...

Youth who are taking antidepressants in the class of serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) for anxiety or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are more likely to experience side effects that cause them to discontinue the medication than those taking serotonin-norepinephrine inhibitors (SNRIs), according to a report in theJournal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.SSRIs also appear to be more commonly associated with “activation syndrome”—a cluster of symptoms including restlessness, anxiety, and agitation.Both classes of antidepressants are commonly prescribed for young people with ...

ConclusionsRumination is known to be associated with poor prognosis in mental health. This study suggests that rumination is a maladaptive coping style associated not only with worry, distress and illness severity, but also with socioeconomic status. Also, rumination demonstrated a specific association with panic disorder.
