SKIP AHEAD: 1:01 – Antipsychotic Mechanism 1:58 – Antipsychotics and their Indications 3:30 – Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (Typical Antipsychotic Side Effect) 4:18 – Extrapyramidal Symptoms (Typical Antipsychotic Side Effect) 6:19 – Atypical Antipsychotics and their side effects 8:57 – Mood Stabilizers 12:58 – Anxiolytics and Benzodiazepines We will start with a quick review of some material from my previous video on psychosis. Symptoms of schizophrenia can be broken down into 2 categories, Positive and Negative Symptoms. Positive symptoms include behaviors or sensations that are not normally present. Examples include hallucinations, delusions, and catatonia. These symptoms are thought to be related to an excess of dopamine. I remember this by remembering that “doPamine has a P in it”. So P for Positive and P for Dopamine. Negative symptoms are the absence of normal behavior. Examples include a lack of initiative, diminished speech, disheveled appearance & flat affect. These symptoms are thought to be related to an excess of serotonin. As we will see antipsychotics affect dopamine and serotonin to varying levels. The indications for this class of drugs includes psychosis (mainly schizophrenia), Mania (mainly bipolar disorder), aggression and Tourette's disease. Typical Antipsychotics primarily block dopamine receptors in a non-specific manor. Therefore, these drugs work best for positive symptoms, and have little effect on negative symptoms. The non-specific mechanism of the drug also means there are lots of side effects. Some of these medications come in a slow release injectable form so they can be used in non-compliant and aggressive patients. There are a lot of high yield side effects so we will break them down one by one Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (or NMS) is a rare but potentially fatal adverse reaction of typical antipsychotics. It involves fever, altered mental status, rigidity and autonomic instability (such as tachycardia, hypertension, diaphoresis etc.). You may also see elevated myoglobin in blood or urine and elevated Creatine Kinase (CK). One of the ways I think about it is that it looks kinda sorta like Serotinin Syndrome that you can see with antidepressatns. If you see this you have to emergently stop the medication, provide supportive care and consider adding Dantrolene Extrapyramidal Symptoms (or EPS) are due to blockage of Nigrostriatal dopamine. It can present with a number of different symptoms. Akasthisia is a general sensation of restlessness Acute Dystonia is involuntary continuous muscle contractions often of the neck. Another common presentation of acute dystonia is Oculogyris Crisis when your eyes get locked looking upward and you have to lean over to see Dyskinesia (AKA Pseudoparkinsonism) presents like Parkinson’s Disease with symptoms like a pill rolling tremor, cogwheel rigidity & bradykinesia (or slow movement) Tardine Dyskinesia (or TD) is uncontrollable facial tics, grimacing & tongue movements As scary as these symptoms may look, they are generally not medical emergencies. In most cases you will continue to use the drug with perhaps a reduction in the dose or the addition of an anticholinergic mediation like Benzatropine or Diphenhydramine. Tardive Dyskinesia is the exception and requires cessation of the medication as it can be permanent. Usually you would switch a patient with TD to a 2nd gen antipsychotic. Hyperprolactinemia is a side effect due to Blockage of Tuberoinfundibular dopamine. It presents just like any other disease that increases prolactin. So you can have galactorrhea, gynecomastia, decreased libido and menstrual irregularities. The text for this video is too long and exceeds Youtube max allowed length.

Common medications taken by as many as a third of pensioners could almost double the chances of dying from a stroke.Both prescribed medicines and ones available over the counter were found to raise the risk of having a stroke.Among commonly prescribed drugs were the painkiller codeine, anti-anxiety drugs such as Valium, and beta-blockers. Those that can be bought in chemists included the hayfever remedy Piriton and the diarrhoea treatment Imodium.A study led by the University of Aberdeen found people with a high intake of these ‘anticholinergic’ drugs – which could be as few as two or three different ones – are 59 per cent more likely to suffer a stroke and have an 86 per cent higher chance of dying from stroke.Anticholinergic drugs have nothing in common except their effect on the body’s cholinergic system, which regulates the heart and other bodily systems like the gut.Already believed to cause memory loss and falls, it is now thought they may cause blood clots which can lead to a stroke.Dr David Gamble, who led the study of nearly 22,000 people, said: ‘This is important because, worldwide, someone has a stroke every two seconds.‘A lot of these medicines have a pivotal role in the treatment of disease and we would not want people to become afraid of taking them, but no medication is a magic bullet and they have risks as well as benefits.These findings will allow people, as well as their doctors, to think carefully about medications, which could lead to a lower number of strokes.’The researchers looked at generic drugs available on the NHS, including the drugs which are branded and sold as Valium, Imodium and Piriton.Up to 37 per cent of people aged 65 and over take anticholinergic drugs, which are more risky in daily doses than taken sporadically.Codeine, Imodium and atenolol, a beta blocker taken for angina, are among those with weaker side effects. The painkiller pethidine is stronger, along with some anti-histamines used to treat allergies like hayfever.The strongest, categorised as ‘class three’ by the academics, include amitriptyline, often used for nerve pain, and oxybutynin, for bladder conditions. Using these ratings, the researchers categorised people with the highest chance of anticholinergic effects, whose chance of a stroke was 59 per cent higher than people who took none of the drugs.It is thought the medications can make the heart beat faster or erratically, trapping blood within the heart which, if it clots and reaches the brain, causes a stroke. More than 1.2million people in Britain have had a stroke, and more than 100,000 occur every year.Professor Phyo Myint, senior author of the study, said it was the first of its kind, adding that as stroke is potentially preventable, the possible identification of a new modifiable risk factor was significant.The study is published in the International Journal of Epidemiology. A total of 21,722 people aged 39 to 79 were studied.

Diane Brookes used to lose two-and-a-half days every week to crippling migraines. The throbbing pain and violent sickness dominated her life, leaving her incapable of getting out of bed.‘It was torture. Our family life was taken over by migraine,’ recalls the 48-year-old, who lives near Stoke-on-Trent with husband Allen, 46, a company director, and their three children aged 25, five and four.‘I couldn’t even look after the children. My husband would take them to their parties and send me a video of them playing. It was heartbreaking.’Over the past 25 years Diane has tried more than a dozen drugs and various devices and alternative treatments, yet nothing gave her effective relief.But now a monthly injection has transformed her life, she says.Diane took part in a trial for one of a new wave of drugs that are the first specifically developed to prevent migraines.She received jabs of erenumab, which cut the number, duration and intensity of her migraines by around 80 per cent.About 8 million people in the UK suffer from migraine, which typically causes throbbing pain and symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light.Painkillers often have little effect during an attack — and even if they work, sufferers may have sufficiently frequent attacks to need a preventative treatment.However, current preventatives reduce the frequency or severity of attacks by only 50 to 60 per cent, and for some people there will be relatively little benefit.This makes the new wave of drugs the most significant development in migraine treatment for 30 years, says Professor Anne MacGregor, a specialist in headaches and women’s health in the NHS and Harley Street.‘It’s a big revolution, as there is no drug worldwide that is solely for migraine prevention,’ she says. ‘Every one was originally developed for another condition.’The main problem with this is the side-effects. Beta-blockers, for example, which can help migraine sufferers by preventing dilation of blood vessels in the brain (which causes pain) were developed for high blood pressure and can also trigger nightmares, hallucinations and tiredness.Another common preventative drug is amitriptyline. Developed as an antidepressant, it is thought to prevent migraine by blocking reabsorption of the brain chemical serotonin, which plays a role in pain. But it can cause a dry mouth, drowsiness and weight problems.The new drugs, however, are specifically targeted at migraine — and the studies with erenumab show it has minimal side-effects, with patients given it having lower rates of adverse effects than people taking a placebo (the most common side-effects were headache and chest infection).During a migraine attack, blood vessels on the surface of the brain dilate, releasing inflammatory chemical messengers that trigger pain. Erenumab is thought to work by blocking a chemical called CGRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide)to prevent the blood vessels dilating.Erenumab is part of a group of drugs known as CGRP monoclonal antibodies: there are three others — eptinezumab, galcanezumab and fremanezumab.Studies suggest erenumab can reduce both episodic migraine (attacks that occur for up to 14 days a month) and chronic migraine, where symptoms occur on 15 days or more.Research presented at the Congress of the International Headache Society last month, funded by the drug company Novartis, gave details of a three-month, gold-standard global trial of 667 patients who had not responded to other treatments.The patients were div1

http://www.stomponstep1.com/anxiety-disorders-ocd-ptsd-panic-attack-agoraphobia-phobias-gad-generalized/ SKIP AHEAD: 0:25 – Anxiety Definition & Symptoms 1:13 – Anxiety Differential Diagnosis 2:12 – Generalized Anxiety (GAD) 3:05 – Panic Attacks, Panic Disorder & Agoraphobia 5:01 – Specific Phobia & Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) 7:55 – Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) 9:29 – Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Anxiety is uncontrolled fear, nervousness and/or worry about trivial or non-existent things. It is an unpleasant fear of future events that are unlikely to occur. Some patients have insight and realize that their uneasiness is illogical, but that does not alleviate symptoms. A certain level of anxiety is considered normal in many situations, but frequent anxiety or anxiety that inhibits function is pathologic. During anxiety sympathetic nervous system activation can result in physical symptoms such as Palpitations, Tachycardia, Shortness of breath, Muscle tension, Restlessness, Lack of focus, Sweating or chills and Changes in sleeping pattern. In order to make a diagnosis of anxiety, one must rule out other potential causes of these symptoms. The differential diagnosis for anxiety includes other psychiatric disorders, cardiac abnormalities (such as myocardial infarction or valvular disease), endocrine disorders (like hyperthyroidism) and respiratory disease (such as asthma or Pulmonary Embolism). Substances such as street drugs and prescribed medications must also be ruled out as a potential cause of the symptoms. We are going to hold off on discussing most of the different treatment options for anxiety until a later video that will cover all of pharmacology for the psychiatry section. That video will cover things like SSRIs, anxiolytics and cognitive behavioral therapy which can be used to treat anxiety disorders. However, during this video I will mention a couple treatment options that are used for specific anxiety disorders. We will start our discussion with Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD. You can see here in the top right corner I give GAD a high yield rating of 2. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the High Yield Rating it is a scale from 0 to 10 that gives you an estimate for how important each topic is for the USMLE Step 1 Medical Board Exam. GAD is a prolonged period of near constant anxiety. Their anxiety is not linked to a specific item, person, or situation (AKA it isn’t a phobia). They usually worry about a wide variety of things including school/work performance, finances, health, friends and/or family members. Their anxiety is “generalized” across many situations. Their anxiety frequently presents with “physical” symptoms and may be severe enough to impair function. A Panic Attack is sudden onset period of extremely intense anxiety accompanied by numerous signs and symptoms of anxiety. The attack is often associated with a sense of impending doom. These “episodes” usually last 10 to 30 minutes and are disabling. The patient returns to their normal level of function soon after the panic attack. They may be brought on by an inciting event or be completely unprovoked. I’d like to stop here for a moment to clarify the difference between generalized anxiety disorder and a panic attack. GAD can be thought of as a constant moderate level of anxiety while panic attacks are short periods of severe anxiety. Panic Disorder is recurrent panic attacks that are unprovoked and have no identifiable trigger. The onset of these anxiety episodes is unpredictable. Patients may be relatively asymptomatic between attacks, but often have anxiety about having more attacks. Their fear is related to the panic attacks themselves rather than a particular external stimuli. This differentiates Panic Disorder from Panic Attacks that are caused by things like phobias. The text for this video is too long and exceeds the maximum allowed by youtube.
