Anxiety disorders are associated with increased illness burden and poor outcome (I): they require assessment and treatment (S). Stimulant drugs may mimic manic symptoms (II). A drug- induced state, including psychosis, should wane with the clear- ance of the offending drug (II): use 5 half-lives as the relevant interval (and the longest half-life stated in a range).

Most SLE manifestations are the result of chronic inflammatory response at the affected end organ, which can be demonstrated using laboratory, imaging

endocarditis. 37 Although infectious endocarditis remains a life-threatening disease, with some cardiac conditions predisposing to infectious endocarditis and bacteremia with organisms causing infectious endocarditis occurring commonly in association with genitourinary procedures, the American Heart Association now recommends that antimicrobial prophylaxis during genitourinary procedures is not an effective strategy for prevention of infectious endocarditis. Infectious endocarditis is more likely to result (...) risks of prophylactic antimicrobial administration include allergic reactions, which vary from minor rashes to anaphylaxis, and suppression of normal bacterial flora, which can lead to Clostridium difficile colitis, colonization and infection with resistant organisms, and other adverse effects. Although the frequency of adverse events for any specific antimicrobial agent is calculable for population exposures, it is difficult to assess the gravity of each adverse event, as well as the need

in these examples is the subtlety or absence of skin features. Some other pointers to consider are: unless a clear alternate diagnosis is present, life-threatening hypotension should be treated as anaphylaxis. Severe asthma that does not respond to standard therapy may also be due to anaphylaxis. Paroxysmal onset should trigger a search for allergic precipitants, as should the presence of skin flushing which may be subtle and noticed only by relatives while rashes and angioedema may be associated (...) and stable overall at ~0.64 deaths per million people per year, however medicine induced anaphylaxis deaths increased in the order of 300%. 1 Case fatality rates were approximately 1:1000 for food anaphylaxis (commonest in children) and 1:100 for medicine and insect venom anaphylaxis (mostly in adults). Age is a major risk factor for death, with most deaths occurring in adults aged over 35 years. In children and adolescents, fatal and near-fatal anaphylaxis appears to be strongly associated
