Cross-sectional studies reveal that OCD is not only associated with a high risk of depression but also of

Pharmacotherapy prescribing patterns in the treatment of bipolar disorder in a South African outpatient population

represent the nature of patients followed up having been admitted to the hospital because of symptom severity with either a manic or depressive episode.

Nocturnal Enuresis is an Under-recognised Side Effect of Clozapine: Results of a Systematic Review

heavily relied on accurate patient recollection and timing of symptom events. Particularly the studies that reported an episode prevalence since clozapine initiation. This applied to both patients and healthcare staff when asked to clarify the presence or absence of NE. Generally, the studies did not explicitly document the time period over which the presence of NE was assessed during the patient interview, that is, whether the symptom was experienced currently, within the last week, since clozapine initiation or at any point over their lifetime. Jeong et al. (2008
