Only 30% of depressed patients benefit from an initial course of an antidepressant. 40% do not respond to antidepressants at all and are considered treatment-resistant. A new procedure, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) after 10 20-minute treatments provides the same relief as 6 weeks of an antidepressant and reduces depression scores by 50% for treatment-resistant patients. tDCS is non-invasive, painless, inexpensive, without side effects and can be done by the patient at home.9 months ago
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) removed seven reptiles from an unlicensed man last week. FWC investigators charged Nick Mitchell with unlawful possession of seven venomous reptiles and several other violations related to the care, keeping and labeling of his animals. The animals, including a gila monster, black monocled cobra, rhino viper, dusky pygmy rattlesnake, black neck spitting cobra and two banded cobras, were seized and placed at a local licensed facility.
