Background and activities
I work as a medical doctor at the psychiatric departement at Levanger hospital. I currently work on research project.
To help me with my project, psychiatrist dr.med Anne Engum and professor in famacology Olav Spigset give me guidance. The project is largely consits of two parts.
First, we are working on a studie where we want to investigate the metabolic properties of SSRIs (selective serotonin receptor inhibitors, widely used antidepressants).
In the second part of the project we aim to combine registries to investigate the morbidity and mortality of patients suffering from myocardial infarction while using SSRI.
We are just getting started, and we are currently working on the design. I am looking forward to continue working on this.
