anxiety betegség

Although medications such as anticancer, antimicrobial, immunomodulatory, neurological or hormonal therapies may have a negative impact on mood, adequate attention was not paid until the withdrawal of rimonabant in 2008. In the present study the authors review full spectrum of currently available medications discussing anxiety and depression as possible adverse effects of treatment. A relatively high risk of depression should always be considered when pharmacotherapy applied, especially if current depressive episodes, positive family history, or neurotic personality traits increasing susceptibility to depressogenic effects. Prior to start of medical treatment, the potential effectiveness of the given drug should be precisely evaluated, and alternative medical and non-medical treatment options should also be carefully considered. In addition, monitoring patients during treatment for signs of depressive or anxious symptoms is necessary.

Annak ellenére, hogy számos szomatikus betegség kezelésére alkalmazott – például daganatellenes, antimikrobás, immunmoduláns, neurológiai, illetve hormonháztartásra ható – gyógyszer hathat negatív irányban a hangulatra, ezt egészen a rimonabant 2008-ban emiatt történt visszavonásáig nem kezelték jelentőségének megfelelően. A szerzők a teljes gyógyszerpalettát áttekintve tárgyalják a szorongást és a depressziót, mint gyógyszer-mellékhatásokat. A gyógyszerválasztásnál minden esetben figyelembe kell venni, ha a betegeknél magas a depresszió kialakulásának a kockázata, például, ha már korábban előfordult vagy jelenleg is fennáll a depressziós epizód vagy betegség, ha a családi anamnézisben előfordul depresszió, illetve ha a betegnél olyan neurotikus személyiségvonások állnak fenn, amelyek következtében sérülékenyebb a depressziót kiváltó hatásokkal szemben. A veszélyt jelentő gyógyszerek felírása előtt emellett célszerű figyelembe venni az alkalmazni kívánt szer hatékonyságát, a rendelkezésre álló alternatív gyógyszeres és nem gyógyszeres terápiás lehetőségeket, és minden esetben biztosítani kell a beteg monitorozását a kezelés során az esetleges depressziós vagy szorongásos tünetek mihamarabbi észlelése érdekében.

CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.

CBD has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and, in some cases, it was able to stop them altogether. Videos of the effects of CBD on these children and their seizures are readily available on the Internet for viewing, and they are quite striking. Recently the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medicine for these conditions, Epidiolex, which contains CBD.

The evidence for cannabidiol health benefits

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a "high." According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."

Some CBD manufacturers have come under government scrutiny for wild, indefensible claims, such that CBD is a cure-all for cancer, which it is not. We need more research but CBD may be prove to be an option for managing anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. Without sufficient high-quality evidence in human studies we can’t pinpoint effective doses, and because CBD is currently is mostly available as an unregulated supplement, it’s difficult to know exactly what you are getting. If you decide to try CBD, talk with your doctor — if for no other reason than to make sure it won’t affect other medications you are taking.

Side effects of CBD include nausea, fatigue and irritability. CBD can increase the level in your blood of the blood thinner coumadin, and it can raise levels of certain other medications in your blood by the exact same mechanism that grapefruit juice does. A significant safety concern with CBD is that it is primarily marketed and sold as a supplement, not a medication. Currently, the FDA does not regulate the safety and purity of dietary supplements. So, you cannot know for sure that the product you buy has active ingredients at the dose listed on the label. In addition, the product may contain other (unknown) elements. We also don’t know the most effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition.
