Aims null null null The risk of antipsychotic-associated cardiovascular and metabolic events may differ among countries, and limited real-world evidence has been available comparing the corresponding risks among children and young adults. We, therefore, evaluated the risks of cardiovascular and metabolic events in children and young adults receiving antipsychotics. Methods null null null We conducted a multinational self-controlled case series (SCCS) study and included patients aged 6–30 years o...

(1) Background: A variety of stressors may be potentially harmful to adolescents’ health and well-being. Relaxation techniques have been recognized as a valid method for stress release, but the challenge is to apply them practically in schools to produce the desired effects. (2) Methods: This feasibility study used the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) and hair cortisol concentration (HCC) to test the effects of an abbreviated progressive muscle relaxation (APMR) program on female adolescents. The pa...

A 76-year-old male presented with a recurrent depressive episode, an unsteady gait and cognitive impairment. Extensive blood tests, including hemogram, biochemical tests, folic acid, vitamin B12, and thyroid hormone, showed normal results. With the exception of the unsteady gait, neurological examination was negative. Brian magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed the typical feature of central pontine myelinolysis (CPM); however, there was no history of alcoholism, liver transplantation, malnutr...

Schizophrenia is a chronic, debilitating psychiatric disorder with a high risk of relapse. Nonadherence to medication is a significant contributor to poor outcomes. Although long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics prevent the relapse of schizophrenia, several factors present obstacles to the use of LAI antipsychotics, and clinical guidelines for LAI antipsychotics remain limited. To provide clinical recommendations, the Taiwanese Society of Biological Psychiatry and Neuropsychopharmacology (...

Objective: Few studies have identified a relationship between cognitive deficits and altered event-related potentials (ERPs), which measure the synchronous activity of neurons in response to a stimulus in patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). In this study, we intended to explore the relation between cognitive function and ERP in patients with GAD. Methods: Fourteen drug-free participants with GAD and 14 healthy controls were recruited. ERPs were measured, and neuropsychological test...

BACKGROUND.: It is well-known that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is associated with changes in the dopaminergic system. However, the relationship between central dopaminergic tone and the blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal during receipt of rewards and penalties in the corticostriatal pathway in adults with ADHD is unclear. METHODS.: Single-photon emission computed tomography with [99mTC]TRODAT-1 was used to assess striatal dopamine transporter (DAT) availability. Event...

Background/Purpose Although social cognitive deficits were found in euthymic patients of bipolar disorder (BD), the characteristics of social cognition in Han Chinese euthymic BD patients remain obscure. This study aimed to examine social cognition in Han Chinese euthymic BD patients relative to healthy controls (HC). Moreover, we explore the differences in social cognition between euthymic BD I and BD II patients. Methods 43 Han Chinese BD patients (BD-I:25, BD-II:18) and 28 HC were recruited. ...

Understanding different cardiometabolic safety profiles of antipsychotics helps avoid unintended outcomes among young patients. We conducted a population-based study to compare cardiometabolic risk among different antipsychotics in children, adolescents and young adults. From Taiwan's National Health Insurance Database, 2001-2013, we identified two patient cohorts aged 5-18 (children and adolescents) and 19-30 (young adults), diagnosed with psychiatric disorders and newly receiving antipsychotic...
