Impulsivity and Thought Process Disorder in Patients With Active Suicidal Ideation and Depression
University of Alabama at Birmingham
This study is dedicated to achieving a better understanding of how the brain processes
information. Specifically, the investigators are studying cognitive function, thought
process, and impulsivity in people with and without suicidal thoughts. You are being asked
to participate in a research study to learn how the use of a medication, risperidone,
improves your symptoms of depression. Specifically the investigators are studying the
effectiveness of reducing the thought of suicide and other symptoms of severe depression.
Risperidone is approved by FDA for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar mania, and
clinical practice suggests that it might benefit patients with major depressive disorder.
During clinical trials with 2607 patients, risperidone was proved to be safe. This is a
pilot study to test a new indication of risperidone for treatment of severe depression. The
study medication will be given in addition to usual psychiatric care.
