Podcast: Anxiety and Anger: A One-Two Punch

  Do you struggle with anger? Did you know that some of our most hot-headed moments are actually rooted in anxiety? In today’s podcast, Jackie openly shares her own fuse-blowing moment when her husband’s keys were (gasp!) missing from the hook, and now she must face being late for therapy and perhaps even lie dying on the side of the road. How did she handle this catastrophic situation her mind so graciously forewarned her about? Does this sound familiar? Join us as we discuss anxiety-driven anger and explore ways to minimize and possibly even prevent it.

Purpose of review To provide a framework for approaching ventricular arrhythmias in the setting of cardiomyopathy, outline the latest evidence-based recommendations for catheter ablation and device therapy, and discuss novel treatment strategies. Recent findings Risk stratification of ventricular arrhythmias in systolic heart failure has evolved, with an increasing role for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging to identify underlying substrate and scar burden. Medical therapy for heart failure has greatly improved, and the role of primary prevention defibrillators in nonischemic cardiomyopathy has become more ambiguous. ...

Purpose of review The most recent studies published or initiated in the last 18 months, investigating cannabidiol in the treatment of symptoms of schizophrenia and related conditions are summarized, including observed tolerability and reported side-effects. Recent findings Recent studies focused on patients with sub-acute psychotic syndromes of schizophrenia, clinical high-risk state for psychosis (CHR-P), or frequent cannabis users, as well as cognitive functioning in chronic schizophrenia. There is further, although not consistent evidence for cannabidiol-reducing positive symptoms, but not negative symptoms. Eviden...

Purpose of review Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) do not usually offer a sex-specific approach for the management of schizophrenia. With this narrative review, we aim to give an integrated and synthesized overview of the current state of knowledge regarding sex-specific aspects in schizophrenia and how this topic may be adapted in the development of CPGs. Recent findings Recent studies further suggest sex-specific differences in epidemiologic features, the course of illness, underlying pathomechanisms, response likelihood to antipsychotic medication and differences in tolerability. Beyond this, selective estrogen ...

Purpose of review Recently, it has been questioned whether the re-emergence of psychotic symptoms following antipsychotic discontinuation or dose reduction is attributable to underlying psychotic vulnerability or to rebound effects of chronic use of antipsychotic medication. It was repeatedly shown that relapse rates are high after discontinuation of maintenance treatment. A potential contributing factor could be the increase in density of postsynaptic dopamine D2 receptors in the striatum and the higher affinity of D2 receptors for dopamine after chronic blockade. Recent findings To date, little clinical evidence is ...

Purpose of review The association between hallucinations and sensory loss, especially vision- and hearing-impairment, has been firmly established over the past years. The deafferentation theory, a decrease of the threshold for activation in the brain and the consequential imbalance between excitatory and inhibitory brain networks, is hypothesized to underly this relationship. Here we review the studies investigating this theory with a focus on the most recent literature to better understand the contribution of sensory loss to hallucinations. Recent findings A large cross-sectional study has recently confirmed the rela...

This article reviews current advances in evaluating the use of language as a diagnostic or prognostic tool in schizophrenia. Recent findings The development of computational linguistic tools to quantify language disturbances is rapidly gaining ground in the field of schizophrenia research. Current applications are the use of semantic space models and acoustic analyses focused on phonetic markers. These features are used in machine learning models to distinguish patients with schizophrenia from healthy controls or to predict conversion to psychosis in high-risk groups, reaching accuracy scores (generally ranging from 80 ...

Purpose of review To summarize the current literature regarding comorbid schizophrenia and opioid use disorder (OUD). Recent findings Epidemiological evidence is unclear on whether patients with schizophrenia have a higher rate of OUD. Patients with OUD have been shown to have a higher risk of developing schizophrenia. However, it is clear that patients with both schizophrenia and OUD are less likely to receive standard of care including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opiate use disorder and have worse outcomes compared with patients with schizophrenia who do not abuse opioids. OUD significantly increases the...

Purpose of review The gut microbiota has been speculated to underpin metabolic changes associated with chronic antipsychotic use. The change in the gut microbiota can also cause abnormal absorbtion from the gut into the blood stream (leaky gut syndrome) that can lead to inflammatory reactions, and thus, secondary damage to the brain and central nervous system. Our article aims to highlight relevant research on antipsychotic's effect on the microbiota and to point out future directions. Recent findings Antipsychtoic use can result in specific microbiota changes, and it is important to differentiate this from the innate...
