Four-year follow-up of twenty-four first-episode manic patients


, : Four-year follow-up of twenty-four first-episode manic patients. Journal of Affective Disorders 19(2): 79-86

Twenty-four first-episode manic patients were followed to investigate the 4-year outcome after recovery from a manic episode. Patients had no documented previous manic or depressive episodes. The presence of psychotic features during the index episode and a history of alcoholism were statistically significant predictors of a shorter time in remission. Low occupational status at baseline predicted poor global social adjustment at 4 years. Also, a larger correlation among outcome measures was found at 48 than at 6 months. The importance of controlling for presence of multiple episodes in outcome studies is emphasized.

Rationale: In the body, heroin is rapidly transformed to 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM) and then to morphine, that in turn is mainly metabolized to morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G) and, at lesser extent, to morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G). Unlike M3G, M6G is a...
