Remission of Methamphetamine-Induced Withdrawal Delirium and Craving After Electroconvulsive Therapy

, : Remission of Methamphetamine-Induced Withdrawal Delirium and Craving After Electroconvulsive Therapy. Iranian Journal of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences 9(4): E1793-E1793

The aim of this study is to describe the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in the treatment of methamphetamine-induced withdrawal delirium and craving in a single case. A 44-year-old male presented to the hospital in Fars province, Iran, with Methamphetamine-Induced Withdrawal Delirium who responded to ECT. The electroconvulsive therapy can be a suitable option for the treatment of methamphetamine withdrawal delirium and craving. Also, it can be usefully employed in these very serious conditions which may represent a risk to life.

Recently we showed that visible-UV spectra in aqueous solution can be accurately calculated for arsenic (III) bisulfides, such as As(SH) (sub 3) , As(SH) (sub 2) S (super -) and their oligomers. The calculated lowest energy transitions for these s...
