Quetiapine is a second-generation (atypical) antipsychotic. It’s approved by the FDA for schizophrenia, acute bipolar mania/mixed and depression, and bipolar maintenance (as an add-on to lithium or divalproex). The extended-release form is also approved as an add-on for depression. Though its approved uses are limited, it’s widely used off-label as a single therapy for depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, and other conditions.

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ Fatnews.com http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews I am going to read a section from this wonderful book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare by Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD. The section is bout drug-induced side effects in the elderly. The reason that I am telling this story is that the SAME THING happened to my mother. My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years, and tragically for the last 3.5 years of her life, and yet my mother's doctors were blind to this. Prof Gøtzsche says: We know very little about polypharmacy Most patients are in treatment with several drugs, particularly elderly patients. A Swedish study of 762 people living in nursing homes found that 67% were prescribed 10 or more drugs. One-third were in treatment with three or more psychoactive drugs; around half received antidepressants or tranquillisers; and anticholinergic drugs were used in one-fifth. All these drugs may create cognitive impairment, confusion and falls, which carry a considerable mortality among the elderly. The symptoms are often misinterpreted by the patients and their carers as signs of old age or impending disease, e.g. dementia or Parkinson's, but when doctors stop the medicines, many of the patients apparently become many years younger... and become active again. My most important contribution to internal medicine was to stop drugs in newly admitted patients, only to realise that, quite often, the patients arrived doped with the same drugs by their general practitioner next time they were admitted. We know very little about what happens when patients take many drugs... A randomised trial showed that drug reduction [reducing the number of drugs that a person is taking] lowered both mortality and admission to hospital a subsequent study in 70 patients where number of drugs was reduced from 7.7 to 4.4 per patient showed that 88% reported global improvement in health and most had improvement in cognitive functions. Here is a typical story, apart from the fact that few elderly people are that lucky: When my father was 88, he was hospitalised for dizziness, which occurred after his medication was increased. In the hospital, he was given more medication which made him confused, frightened, and incoherent. Then his doctor transferred him to a nursing home, where he was dirty, crying, begging people to hold his hand, and listed as DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) -- and given still more medication. I convinced the doctor at the nursing home to discontinue all medication, and I hired a private nurse to give my father an organic diet -- rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. In 3 days, my father made such a miraculous recovery that the nurses on the ward didn't recognise him. When I called to speak to my father, he was back to his old self, and told me that he was bored and looking for a card game. My father was discharged the next day, and died several years later, while relaxing peacefully at home. The SAME THING happened to my mother! My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years. My mother suffered tragically from drug-induced side effects for the last 3.5 years of her life. I watched this happen to my mother for the last 17 years of her life. I watched my mother spiral downhill for the last 3.5 years of her life as doctors gave her more and more drugs which only caused my mother to get worse and worse and worse. Literally EVERY problem my mother had over the last 17 years of her life was due to a drug-induced side effect. I can tell you every problem that my mother had and every drug that caused this for the last 17 years of her life. ...and yet my mother's doctors were completely and total BLIND to this! I told my parents this for 17 years... and I SCREAMED it for the last 3.5 years of my parents' life but I could NOT convince my parents of this because my mother's doctors were saying THE EXACT OPPOSITE! My mother's doctors told my parents that if they could just find the right drugs or find the right combination of drugs or find the right dose of drugs, that they could solve my mother's problems. But these psychiatric drugs had failed my mother for 40 years! My mother saw at least 17 doctors over the last 17 years of her life, and every one on them were completely and totally blind to the fact that my mother was suffering from drug-induced side effects. It is a systemic problem with doctors — that doctors are BLIND to drug-induced side effects. It is not my intention to insult doctors by saying this, but I must tell the truth about this in order to try and save anyone I can from the same suffering that my mother went through for so many years. I've learned 9 things about doctors over the past 20 years. The first thing I learned is that doctors are blind to drug-induced side effects.

Targeting brain tumors with enough anti-cancer medication is no easy task. But Stefan Bossmann and Deryl Troyer at Kansas State University are developing a novel materials treatment method for persons with brain cancer that uses a type of white blood cell to deliver anticancer drugs to particularly virulent brain tumors.

Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days.Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating. People may also see or hear things other people do not.Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death.Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs from which to withdraw. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month. A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment improves outcomes.Treatment in a quiet intensive care unit with sufficient light is often recommended.Benzodiazepines are the medication of choice with diazepam, lorazepam, chlordiazepoxide, and oxazepam all commonly used.They should be given until a person is lightly sleeping. The antipsychotic haloperidol may also be used. The vitamin thiamine is recommended. Mortality without treatment is between 15% and 40%.Currently death occurs in about 1% to 4% of cases. About half of people with alcoholism will develop withdrawal symptoms upon reducing their use. Of these, three to five percent develop DTs or have seizures. The name delirium tremens was first used in 1813; however, the symptoms were well described since the 1700s.The word "delirium" is Latin for "going off the furrow," a plowing metaphor. It is also called shaking frenzy and Saunders-Sutton syndrome.Nicknames include the shakes, barrel-fever, blue horrors, bottleache, bats, drunken horrors, elephants, gallon distemper, quart mania, and pink spiders, among others.
