    COVID-19 Pandemic: Stress and Psychiatric Disorders
    (2021-02-01T00:00:00Z) KIRPINAR, İSMET; KIRPINAR, İSMET
    The epidemic, which first started as viral pneumonia in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019 and is now known as Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19). rapidly spread to almost every part of the world and named a pandemic in March 2020. It is well known that psychiatric symptoms and syndromes, especially posttraumatic stress disorder, major depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders reach high prevalence values in natural or man-made disasters, Especially in infectious disease epidemics where mortality rates are high, patients, those who arc quarantined, and the whole society experience very intense mental stress and trauma. It is not easy to avoid psychological distress after facing highly fatal illnesses such as Ebola, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), or COVID-19. When pandemics turn into a rapid and global disaster, the prevalence values of mental problems reach even higher levels. Combating mental disorders not only provides psychological well-being but also affects the course of the epidemic, as these disorders can delay efforts to fight epidemics.

    The psychiatric assessment schedule for adults with developmental disability checklist: reliability and validity of Turkish version
    (2017-01-01) GORMEZ, Aynur; Kirpinar, Ismet; KIRPINAR, İSMET
    Aim/background: There is a lack of psychometric instruments to measure psychopathology in people with intellectual disabilities (ID). This may lead to underdiagnosis of treatable psychiatric comorbidities in this population. Psychiatric assessment schedule for adults with developmental disabilities (PAS-ADD) Checklist was developed as a screening tool designed for lay people. The PAS-ADD Checklist was created in English and was later on validated for other languages, including French and German. There is no psychometric measure available in Turkish to screen for or detect psychiatric symptoms in adults with ID. The aim of the present study was to present a psychometric evidence of the Turkish language version of the PAS-ADD Checklist. This is the first study aiming to present and validate a psychiatric screening instrument for adults with ID in Turkey.

    Sialorrhoea associated with sertraline use
    Introduction: Sialorrhoea, which has been defined as excessive amount of saliva in the mouth, can be a debilitating symptom. Psychoactive drugs may cause an increase or decrease in saliva secretion. Antidepressant drugs, especially tricyclic antidepressants and less often serotonin reuptake inhibitors, are often associated with a decrease in salivation and the complaint of dry mouth. Case presentation: A 46-year-old male patient with complaints of being depressed, lack of motivation, irritability and difficulty in falling asleep was started on sertraline treatment and had trouble with sialorrhoea after the dose increase, without other causes of hypersalivation. Discussion: We could not find report of any case with antidepressant-associated sialorrhoea in the literature. Future cases may support a relationship between sertraline and sialorrhoea.

    Circadian preferences are associated with vegetative symptoms and comorbid medical diseases in patients with major depression
    (2019-09-03) Sahbaz, Çiğdem Dilek; Devetzioglou, Tougmpa; Ozcelik, Ayse Mine; KIRPINAR, İSMET; ŞAHBAZ, ÇIĞDEM DILEK; KIRPINAR, İSMET
    Circadian preferences may affect the severity and symptom structure of depression and could influence specific symptom clusters of depression. This study aims to examine the relationship between chronotypes and symptomatology in patients with major depression. One hundred and one drug-naive outpatients with major depression were evaluated through the use of the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRSD). The Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ) was used to the define chronotypes and the quality of subjective sleep was measured with Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). The medical records of patients were evaluated retrospectively to determine the presence of another medical illness. HRSD total score and cognitive and vegetative factor scores were significantly higher in the evening chronotype than in the morning and intermediate chronotypes (p < .001). In the regression analysis, MEQ total score was inversely related to HRSD-vegetative factor score (p < .001). The ratio of comorbid illness was found to be statistically significant among depressed patients with evening chronotype (p = .001). Additionally, binary logistic regression analysis was performed to ascertain the likelihood of participants having comorbid medical illness; only age (p = .010) and MEQ total score (p = .011) were associated with exhibiting comorbid illness. General and psychiatric clinical examinations need to be considered with the understanding of circadian preference.
