Just 1 in 5 Mentally Ill Women Gets Cervical Cancer Screenings

Posted 17 Apr 2017 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, April 17, 2017 – Cervical cancer screening rates are much lower among women with severe mental illness than among other women, a new study finds. "The results of this very large study indicate that we need to better prioritize cervical cancer screening for these high-risk women with severe mental illnesses," said study senior author Dr. Christina Mangurian. She's an associate professor of clinical psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. Researchers reviewed 2010-11 California Medicaid data for the study. Of the women with severe mental illness, 42 percent had some form of schizophrenia. Almost a third of the women had major depression. Nearly one in five had bipolar disorder, and the rest had anxiety or another disorder. The study showed that 20 percent of women with severe mental illness were screened for cervical cancer. But 42 percent of women in the ... Read more

Could New 'Talk Therapy' Cut Cost of Treating Depression?

Posted 23 Jul 2016 by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, July 22, 2016 – A simpler and less expensive form of talk therapy is as effective as the gold-standard treatment – cognitive behavioral therapy – for treating depression in adults, a new study suggests. The researchers found that so-called behavioral activation therapy treats depression just as well as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). But behavioral activation can be provided by mental health workers with minimal training and is significantly cheaper, the study authors contended. Cognitive behavioral therapy is provided by highly trained and highly paid specialists. In many countries, CBT is available only to patients who can afford it or who have health insurance, and waiting lists can be long. For example, in the United States, only about one-fourth of people with depression have received any form of psychological therapy in the last 12 months, the researchers said. The ... Read more

Male Sexual Enhancement Supplements Often Ineffective, Possibly Harmful: Study

Posted 13 Jan 2016 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 13, 2016 – There's no proof that over-the-counter sexual enhancement supplements for men work, and some are potentially dangerous, a new study reports. Many men seeking medical help for sexual health issues report using dietary supplements. But with little regulation of dosage or ingredients, the health effects of these products are unknown, the researchers said in background notes. And many of these products contain traces of an ingredient used in drugs like Viagra that can be dangerous to men with certain health problems, the researchers added. The researchers identified top-selling male sexual-help supplements and analyzed the ingredients, including those in products marketed to enhance erections, desire and sexual performance. "While certain natural supplements we reviewed show promise for improving mild sexual dysfunction, they lack robust human evidence," study ... Read more

Better Sex Life May Be a Weight-Loss Surgery Bonus

Posted 4 Nov 2015 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 4, 2015 – Following weight-loss surgery, activity in the bedroom may pick up as the pounds fall away, a new study finds. The research suggests the effect may be long-term, and similar for both men and women. "Improvements in sex life are an additional benefit that goes beyond weight loss," said Dr. John Morton, president of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). He was not involved in the new study. The findings were to be presented Wednesday in Los Angeles at Obesity Week, an annual meeting hosted by ASMBS and The Obesity Society. The study was led by Dr. Kristine Steffen, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences at North Dakota State University in Fargo. Her team tracked outcomes for more than 2,000 people – nearly 80 percent women – who were surveyed about their sex lives for five years after they underwent weight-loss (bariatric) ... Read more

Exercise Might Lift Libido in Women on Antidepressants

Posted 12 Dec 2013 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, Dec. 12, 2013 – Exercise might help treat sexual problems in women taking antidepressants, especially if their workouts occur right before sex, new research reveals. The study included 52 women who had reduced desire and other sexual side effects while taking antidepressants. For the first three weeks of the study, the women did not exercise. They were then divided into two groups for the next three weeks, with one group assigned to exercise immediately before sex and the other group assigned to exercise in a way that was not timed to having sex. The researchers then reversed the two groups for another three weeks. Having a regular exercise routine improved orgasm in all the women, the findings showed. But doing 30 minutes of exercise immediately before sex led to a significant boost in libido and overall improvements in sexual functioning, according to the study, which was ... Read more

U.S. Sees Slowdown in Spending on Mental Health

Posted 5 Feb 2011 by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, Feb. 4 – The amount of money spent on psychiatric drugs in the United States continues to grow but at a much slower rate than in previous years, a new federal government study has found. From 2004 to 2005, spending on psychiatric drugs rose 5.6 percent, compared with an increase of 27.3 percent between 1999 and 2000, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The agency's analysis of health-care costs from 1986 to 2005, the latest year comparable data is available, also found that spending on behavioral health accounts for a decreasing portion of overall health-care costs. Of the $1.85 trillion spent on all health-care services in the United States in 2005, behavioral health spending accounted for 7.3 percent ($135 billion). During the 20 years analyzed in the study, spending for mental health and substance abuse health care grew more slowly ... Read more
