Relapse

Bipolar disorder, in which a person's mood cycles between two extremes -- depression and mania -- is usually treated with a mood stabilizer and, when needed, an antidepressant. But researchers at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute have found that the standard use of these drugs often leads to a relapse. According to established guidelines, the antidepressant should be discontinued within three to six months after a person recovers from an acute episode of depression.

Gov. Jeb Bush's 25-year-old daughter was found with what was believed to be crack cocaine at a drug rehabilitation center where she was undergoing court-ordered treatment, police said Tuesday. If confirmed, it would be Noelle Bush's second lapse since entering rehabilitation and could result in jail. Police were called to the Center for Drug Free Living in Orlando, where workers gave them a 0.2-gram rock that they said they found in Noelle Bush's shoe, Sgt. Orlando Rolon said.

Edward Charles Allaway, the disgruntled janitor who murdered seven people a quarter-century ago at the Cal State Fullerton library, is still a danger to society and should not be freed from a psychiatric hospital, an Orange County judge ruled Friday. The decision by Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel concluded Allaway's most serious bid yet to gain freedom. Several psychiatrists testified that Allaway would not pose a risk if released under state supervision.

A janitor who killed seven people at Cal State Fullerton did so during a psychotic episode that hasn't recurred in more than 20 years, but there's no way to tell whether his mental illness would flare up again, a psychiatrist testified Thursday. On a day that Edward Charles Allaway was brought to tears while discussing his hopes for release, the prosecution presented its first witness to show he should stay in a state mental hospital. "He is atypical," psychiatrist David Sheffner said.

Cory Erving, the 19-year-old missing son of NBA great Julius Erving, might have had a drug relapse and might be using crack cocaine, the investigating sheriff in Sanford, Fla., said Wednesday. There have been no sightings, but officers are looking into a confrontation the youngster had in a known drug area shortly before he was reported missing. Cory Erving disappeared May 28 on what was supposed to be a 20-minute shopping errand to a Lake Mary mall for a family picnic on Memorial Day weekend.

A year after the launch of South Korea's corporate reform program and even as the nation strides impressively toward recovery, its major conglomerates continue to resist change, according to political and economic analysts. Indeed, as the power of these so-called chaebol is increasingly threatened, several display amazing flexibility and creativity in side-stepping government pressure, despite their reputation as huge, clumsy dinosaurs.

Just as Mexico's banks were beginning to recover this year from the self-inflicted wounds of the mid-1990s peso crisis, the spread of global economic ills has threatened to reinfect the nation's still-feeble banking system. Only this year did the banks, digging themselves out from under a deluge of unpayable loans, resume lending. Now lending has virtually stopped again as interest rates soared from about 20% to more than 40% in some cases--raising the specter of yet more loans going bad.
