  1. Suicide attempts in major affective disorder patients with comorbid substance use disorders.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Effects of Medical Interventions on Suicidal Behaviors. Symposium. Miami, FL, USA, 1998/02/26.

    Background 

    The widely accepted impression that substance abuse and dependence are associated with increased suicidal risk was evaluated by literature review and with new data.

    Method 

    Previous research on this association was reviewed, and clinical data on suicide attempts and substance use in 504 mood disorder patients hospitalized in 4 psychiatric units in Sardinia affiliated with the Italian mental health system were analyzed.

    Results 

    The literature supports associations of alcohol and drug use comorbidity with major affective disorders, and of some substances (polyabuse, alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and even tobacco, but perhaps not marijuana or hallucinogens) with suicidal behavior.

    Suicidal risks were similar in hospitalized men and women but were associated with bipolar II, bipolar I (mainly mixed), and unipolar depressive disorders as well as substance abuse, with little effect of type of agent.

    Substance abuse was more common in nonmixed bipolar disorders, men, and age below 30.

    Conclusion
