Abstract

Psychiatric factors play a major role in the AIDS pandemic. They have an, impact on transmission, morbidity, coping, adherence, and quality of Ir;fe and of death. Substance-related disorders are associated with HIV transmission through needle sharing, sexual transmission, exchange of sex for drugs,and perinatal transmission. Persons with AIDS have a high prevalence of substance-related disorders, mood disorders, dementia, mania, and delirium. Persons with AIDS require complex medications, including combination antiretroviral therapy and prophylaxis and treatment for opportunistic infections and cancers. Recognition and treatment of distressing symptoms can maximizelife's potentials and enhance adherence with risk prevention and with care. We describe an integrated approach to the use of psychotropic medicationsin the care of persons with AIDS. With the new antiretroviral therapies available, psychotropic medications can be helpful in alleviating distressingsymptoms, promoting less risk taking, and adhering to complex medical care. The,intricacies and complexities of new medical and psychopharmacologicalissues are delineated in order to enable caregivers help persons with AIDSto maximize life's potentials.
