Use of Phenobarbital in Alcohol Withdrawal Management - A Retrospective Comparison Study of Phenobarbital and Benzodiazepines for Acute Alcohol Withdrawal Management in General Medical Patients.

Psychosomatics 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Clinical and Research Programs in Pediatric Psychopharmacology and Adult ADHD Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA; Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Background: Benzodiazepine-based protocols offer a standard of care for management of alcohol withdrawal, though they may not be safe or appropriate for all patients. Phenobarbital, a long-acting barbiturate, presents an alternative to conventional benzodiazepine treatment, though existing research offers only modest guidance to the safety and effectiveness of phenobarbital in managing alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) in general hospital settings.

Methods: To compare clinical effectiveness of phenobarbital versus benzodiazepines in managing symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, we conducted a retrospective chart review of 562 patients admitted over a 2-year period to a general hospital and treated for AWS. Read More

Department of Gastroenterology, School of Medicine, University of Patras, Patras, Greece. Electronic address:

Background: In recent years, the adoption of unhealthy dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle has led to an alarming increase in the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in pediatric populations. Hepatic steatosis is now considered the most common cause of chronic liver disease in children and adolescents and may progress to liver fibrosis and even cirrhosis, increasing long-term mortality rates. Apart from its severe medical co-morbidities, pediatric NAFLD is associated with a variety of psychosocial factors which act either as precipitants or consequences of the disease. Read More
