In 1930, Dr Edward Bach developed flower essences known as Bach flowers. Today, over 70 years later, they are becoming more and more popular and are used by many practitioners, despite a total lack of scientific support for their use. A review of the literature on the controversial use of this alternative treatment is discussed. [less ▲]

Personality may play a role in the predisposition, the precipitation and/or the maintenance of the CFS. Thirty-six consecutively examined female patients hospitalised for a sleep workup, filled out a Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI) questionnaire. A MANOVA compared the patients with a control group of females matched for age. Significant scores were obtained for dimensions such as Harm Avoidance, Reward Dependence, and Self-Directedness. However, the only subdimension of Harm Avoidance that proved significantly higher in CFS than in controls was “Fatigability,” which is likely to overlap with the core CFS symptom. All in all, the personality structure does not appear to play a major role in the CFS. [less ▲]

In this study, 544 out-patients suffering from depressive disorders were enrolled in 6 weeks open study with fluoxetine 20 mg. A statistically significant decrease of the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRS-D) score is observed during treatment. All individual item HRS-D scores and in particular suicidal ideation, sleep disturbances and anxiety showed the same improvement. Side-effects were carefully recorded and presented a lower incidence rate than in other studies. New issues in methodology management concerning ambulatory studies are discussed. [less ▲]
