TRIAD - Treatment of Insomnia and Depression

2014-07-23 21:20:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of the proposed three-site study is to increase the rate of full remission from major depressive disorder (MDD) at the end of 16 weeks of treatment for people who experience both major depressive disorder and insomnia.

Description

Participants with major depressive disorder and insomnia who meet all study criteria will receive state-of-the-art antidepressant medications and one of two insomnia therapies. The specific therapy for insomnia will be determined by chance (like a flip of a coin), with an equal chance to receive either cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia or desensitization psychotherapy for insomnia. The study physician will select an initial antidepressant medication from a list of three possible medications . If that medication is not helpful, another medication may be tried after 8 weeks or in the event of severe side effects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Drugs used to induce SLEEP, prevent SLEEPLESSNESS, or treat SLEEP INITIATION AND MAINTENANCE DISORDERS.

Disorders characterized by impairment of the ability to initiate or maintain sleep. This may occur as a primary disorder or in association with another medical or psychiatric condition.

Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.
