Postpartum Psychosis

Mental Notes (Dec 20) discusses Texas law concerning the mentally ill who commit crimes and cites this article. In the article, Dr. Jones makes a good point about postpartum psychosis: Most of the time, women who develop postpartum psychosis turn out to be bipolar.
If there are any medical students or psychiatry residents reading this blog, you need to remember this. Bipolar disorder is the most common etiology of postpartum psychosis. Expect to see a question about this on board exams.

This is because Adipex has the ability to control the appetite and long term use of Adipex Alternative can be harmful to your health. In most cases, Adipex diet pills are not prescribed until when all other efforts fail to bring the desirable results.
