Associations of Valproate Doses With Weight Gain in Adult Psychiatric Patients: A 1-Year Prospective Cohort Study
Conclusions: This study provides evidence that valproate dose, mainly for doses at or above 1,300 mg/d, is associated with weight gain in psychiatric patients, suggesting that the lowest effective doses should be prescribed to minimize weight gain.PMID:38535509 | DOI:10.4088/JCP.23m15008 (Source: Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

Effects of Prenatal Exposure to Second-Generation Antipsychotics on Development and Behavior Among Preschool-Aged Children: Preliminary Results From the National Pregnancy Registry for Psychiatric Medications
Conclusions: The current study is the first to examine neurobehavioral outcomes of preschool-aged children exposed prenatally to SGAs. No significant differences in overall development or behavior were detected in the exposed versus unexposed group. These preliminary findings are an important step in delineating neurodevelopmental effects of prenatal SGA exposure.PMID:38488388 | DOI:10.4088/JCP.23m14965 (Source: Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

Randomized Controlled Trial of a Brief Video Intervention to Reduce Self-Stigma of Mental Illness
Conclusions: A 2-minute social contact-based video intervention effectively yielded an immediate but not a lasting decrease in self-stigma among young individuals with ongoing mental health conditions. This is the first study to examine the effect of a video intervention on self-stigma. Future trials of self-stigma treatment interventions should explore whether combining existing interventions with brief videos enhances intervention effects.Trial Registration: NCT05878470.PMID:38451170 | DOI:10.4088/JCP.23m15034 (Source: Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)
