Sample text

However this still does not explain why one person will go on to develop panic disorder after experiencing panic and palpitations whereas another does not. Wolpe and Rowan (1988) make a distinction between the first panic attack that they attribute to independent psychological or biological precipitants and subsequent attacks, which they suggest are the result of classic conditioning. This is supported by clinical data showing that 92% of panic disorder patients in one study experienced their first panic attack in an anxiety-provoking situation rather than at home (Lelliot et al 1989).

These patients narrowly miss the criteria for diagnosis of the condition. In one study,  subjects characterized as having infrequent panic attacks (at least one attack in the 6 months before their assessment) were compared with normal controls and panic disorder patients, on a series of measures of disability and health utilization. These patients were found to be almost as disabled in vocational, familial and social functioning as patients with full panic disorder, and significantly more so than the controls (Katon et al 1995).

Depression and panic disorder Extent and importance of depression and panic disorder comorbidity Depression and panic disorder are both common psychiatric conditions. Traditionally, they have been seen as distinct entities. However, their extensive comorbidity casts doubt on the validity of this distinction. Comorbidity is defined as the presence of more than one disorder in a person over a lifetime, or in a certain period of time. It appears to be the norm rather than the exception in the case of anxiety disorders and depression (Wittchen 1996a).
