Panic disorder and major depression frequently coexist in the clinical setting.
Patients with overlapping symptoms of depression and panic disorder may have more severe symptoms, may require earlier treatment, earlier'and more frequent hospitalization, and may have worse outcomes.
In addition, such patients are at greater risk for suicide than those having either disorder alone.
In light of the importance of these clinical consequences, the authors will review the available literature on the prevalence and prognosis of comorbid depression and panic disorder and will highlight the major clinical characteristics of panic disorder in depressed patients and the treatment strategies most often used.
