Aggressive Behavior Induced by Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) During the First Month of Treatment

2014-07-23 21:35:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

SSRIs are the first line of therapy for anxiety and depressive disorders and for many other clinical diagnoses. One of the most disturbing side effects that is observed is a tendency towards aggressiveness among patients receiving medications from this group, mainly during the first month of therapy. Aggressive behavior tends to occur in some individuals but not in others. In some sub-groups of people, personality and character traits might make a person more prone to aggressive behavior.

In this study the investigators try to estimate the tendency towards aggressive behavior in patients prescribed to a medication from the SSRI group. By using a comparative computer simulation they hope to be able to detect delicate changes and to maybe get some clues of the personalities prone to aggressive behavior in the future.

Description

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) became the first line therapy for anxiety and depressive disorders and for many other clinical diagnoses. One of the most disturbing side effects that is observed is a tendency towards aggressiveness among patients receiving medications from this group, mainly during the first (one month) period of therapy. Aggressive behavior tends to occur in some individuals but not in others. Until now most of the cases and reports in the literature demonstrate the extreme events of aggressive behavior. These personality or any other character traits that are more prone to develop aggressiveness have not been studied and it is not clear if this side effect manifests itself just in the extreme rare cases or if it is a more common phenomenon that occurs in a wider group of people.

In this study we try to estimate the tendency towards aggressive behavior of patients prescribed to a medication of the SSRI group. By using a comparative computer simulation we hope to be able to detect more delicate changes and maybe to get some clues of the personalities prone to aggressive behavior in the future.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.

Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.

A computer simulation technique that is used to model the interaction between two molecules. Typically the docking simulation measures the interactions of a small molecule or ligand with a part of a larger molecule such as a protein.

Disorders that result from the intended use of PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATIONS. Included in this heading are a broad variety of chemically-induced adverse conditions due to toxicity, DRUG INTERACTIONS, and metabolic effects of pharmaceuticals.

A computer simulation developed to study the motion of molecules over a period of time.
