Antidepressants and pregnancy: More research needed
Follow me at @Drmoniquetello For many women, pregnancy and the arrival of a new baby is a joyous time — but not for every woman. Recently, postpartum depression — extreme feelings of sadness and anxiety following the birth of a child — has come out from the shadows. But what about depression during pregnancy? It’s more common than you think: as many as 14% to 23% of pregnant women will experience symptoms of depression. It’s of sufficient public health concern that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening all pregnant women and new moms for depression. However, treatin...

More than sad: Depression affects your ability to think
When you think of clinical depression, you probably think of feeling sad and down for long periods of time; losing your energy and your interest in things you used to enjoy; sleeping too much or too little, or eating too much or too little. But besides these, depression can actually change your ability to think. It can impair your attention and memory, as well as your information processing and decision-making skills. It can also lower your cognitive flexibility (the ability to adapt your goals and strategies to changing situations) and executive functioning (the ability to take all the steps to get something done). For pe...

Antidepressants linked to suicide and aggression in teens
ConclusionPerhaps the most troubling aspect of this paper is not the increased risk of suicidal thoughts in young people, as that has been known for many years. What is worrying is the researchers’ conclusion that they are unable to tell the true extent of harms from antidepressants, because of poor data collection and availability.RCTs are designed to test the effects of treatments with as little bias as possible. However, if the right data on adverse effects is not collected in the trials, or is not made public, we cannot balance the benefits and risks of treatment in a fair and transparent way.

New Study Sheds Light On The Link Between Antidepressants And Birth Defects
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds that pregnant women who take certain drugs that are part of a class of antidepressants known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are at slightly increased risk for having a baby with birth defects.  While this sounds frightening, the absolute risk for birth defects is still very low, cautioned study authors. For instance, women who took Paxil (paroxetine) would increase their risk for giving birth to a baby with anencephaly (a serious and often fatal brain and skull defect) from two per 10,000 to seven per 10,000. For a certain heart ...

The Future of Trauma
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been a mental health condition, classified in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), since 1980. The Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-III) in 1980 classified PTSD as an anxiety disorder, DSM IV (1994) and DSM-IV Textual Revision (TR) also reaffirmed PTSD as an anxiety disorder. DSM-5 (2013) reclassified PTSD as a Trauma and Stress-Related Disorder. PTSD in terms of its longevity, 35 years as a recognized diagnosis, can be seen as a young adult.

Medication and Anxiety
Medication can be an effective approach for managing various types of anxiety such as panic, hyperarousal, and constant worry. However, contrary to popular belief and subtle messages from pharmaceutical companies, medication is far from a cure. In fact, when it comes to “cures” for most psychiatric conditions, the data tends to support psychotherapy. For example, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) responds very well to psychotherapy, whereas the positive effects of medication are somewhat limited. The same is true for panic disorder. Although certain types of medication are very good at relieving panic sympt...

Why Depression Is Underreported In Men
By Mary Elizabeth Dallas Depression is often seen as a problem mainly affecting women. Ironically, that’s one of the reasons why the condition is underreported among men, according to Amit Anand, M.D., a professor of medicine at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner College of Medicine and vice-chair of research at its Center for Behavioral Health. Although women are 70 percent more likely than men to have depression, more than 6 million men in the United States struggle with the condition each year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
