580 Antidepressants and Risks of Suicide and Suicide Attempts: A 27-Year Observational Study
- Patients with more severe affective syndromes were more likely to receive antidepressants.
- Antidepressants were associated with a significant reduction in the risk of suicide and suicide attempts.
- Clinicians must, however, closely monitor patients when an antidepressant is initiated.
598 Metabolic Depression: A Chronic Depressive Subtype? Findings From the InCHIANTI Study of Older Persons

- It is yet to be examined whether treatment of metabolic distubances could improve depression prognosis.
605 Work Hours, Sleep Sufficiency, and Prevalence of Depression Among Full-Time Employees: A Community-Based Cross-Sectional Study [CME]
For Clinical Use
- Long work hours (> 10 hours per day) combined with either subjective insufficient sleep or short sleep (< 6 hours per day) can be related to depression.
- Clincians should ask depressed persons about not only daily sleep hours or perceived sleep sufficiency but also the number of daily work hours.
- To prevent workplace depression, it would seem to be of crucial importance to offer referrals for help with sleep management and treatment for employtees who are working many hours and are sleep deprived and for those who are suffering from chronic sleep debt regardless of work hours.

677 Exercise as an Augmentation Treatment for Nonremitted Major Depressive Disorder: A Randomized, Parallel Dose Comparison
- Exercise is a viable augmentation strategy for depressed patients who are nonresponsive to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
- Depressed patients are willing and able to complete a structured exercise program with behavioral support.
- Exercise treatment dose should be tailored to the individual.
685 Emotion Dysregulation and Negative Affect: Association With Psychiatric Symptoms [CME]
For Clinical Use
- Emotion dysregulation is inherent in a number of forms of psychopathology and may present in extremes of either overly restricted emotional expression and avoidance or heightened and excessive emotionality and excitement-seeking.
- Treatment goals for individuals with emotion dysregulation may include reduction of affective arousal, increase in affect tolerance, and development of psychosocial coping skills to be used in times of increased emotional distress.
- Techniques focusing on social-perspective–taking and cognitive reappraisal of negative affect states, causes, and consequences may be beneficial for individuals with emotion dysregulation.
