A total of 66 outpatients meeting Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-III) criteria for generalized anxiety disorder began treatment in a randomized double-blind study that compared the efficacy and safety of buspirone and diazepam. Thirty-nine outpatients completed the 4-week trial. Both drugs were administered in a 1:1 dosage ratio; the daily(More)
Often obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) patients are labeled as treatment refractory when some first-line options have not been fully explored. Most patients should be encouraged to participate in behavior therapy, even when pharmacotherapy alone has been partially successful. Antiobsessional agents such as clomipramine, fluoxetine, and fluvoxamine should(More)
OBJECTIVE In obsessive-compulsive disorder, the relationship between blood levels of serotonin reuptake inhibitors and clinical outcome is unclear. In a multicenter trial, the authors examined the relationship between steady state plasma levels of fluoxetine and norfluoxetine (determined after 7 weeks of treatment), and their sum, and clinical outcome.

BACKGROUND Bupropion has been previously shown to be particularly beneficial in bipolar and atypical depression. Previous research has supported a possible association of response to plasma levels and to changes in plasma homovanillic acid (HVA). These findings were here extended to bupropion slow-release (SR), a formulation with slower release kinetics. (More)

Twenty-three established outpatient symptomatic Hispanic volunteers receiving mental health services at a large urban hospital participated in this case study. All complained of insufficient sleep.

[1] A Gulf of Mexico performance evaluation and comparison of coastal circulation and wave models was executed through harmonic analyses of tidal simulations, hindcasts of Hurricane Ike (2008) and Rita (2005), and a benchmarking study. Three unstructured coastal circulation models (ADCIRC, FVCOM, and SELFE) validated with similar skill on a new common Gulf(More)
The blood pressure and pulse rate of 90 normal rabbits have been studied for various periods of time, from 1 day (accidental death interrupting the observation) to 15 months. The main data are presented in a table containing the blood pressure and pulse rate on the 1st day of observation, the maximum and minimum of both during the entire period of(More)
