Anxiety disorders in late life. (1/96)

OBJECTIVE: To review the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and treatment of anxiety disorders in late life. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Epidemiologic and comorbidity data are derived from well designed random-sample community surveys. There are virtually no controlled data specific to treatment of anxiety in the elderly. Guidelines for treating anxiety disorders in late life, therefore, must be extrapolated from results of randomized controlled trials conducted in younger patients. MAIN MESSAGE: Generalized anxiety disorder and agoraphobia account for most cases of anxiety disorder in late life. Late-onset generalized anxiety is usually associated with depressive illness and, in this situation, the primary pharmacologic treatment is antidepressant medication. Most elderly people with agoraphobia do not give a history of panic attacks; exposure therapy is the preferred treatment for agoraphobia without panic. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians need to make more use of antidepressant medication and behavioural therapy and less use of benzodiazepines in treating anxiety disorders in late life.  (+info)

Phobic nature of social difficulty in facially disfigured people. (2/96)

BACKGROUND: Over 390,000 people in the UK are disfigured. Facial disfigurement distresses sufferers markedly but has been studied little. AIMS: To compare fearful avoidance of people with a facial disfigurement with that of a group of patients with phobia. METHOD: Comparison of Fear Questionnaire agoraphobia, social phobia and anxiety depression sub-scale scores of 112 facially disfigured people (who scored high on Fear Questionnaire problem severity in three survey studies) with those of 66 out-patients with agoraphobia and 68 out-patients with social phobia. RESULTS: Facially disfigured people and patients with social phobia had similar Fear Questionnaire scores. In contrast, facially disfigured people scored lower on the agoraphobia sub-score but higher on the social phobia sub-score than did patients with agoraphobia. CONCLUSIONS: Facially disfigured people with psychological difficulties resembled people with social phobia on Fear Questionnaire social phobia, agoraphobia and anxiety/depression sub-scores but were less agoraphobic and more socially phobic than were people with agoraphobia. Facially disfigured people thus appeared to be socially phobic and to deserve the cognitive--behavioural therapy that is effective for such phobias.  (+info)

Double-blind clonazepam vs placebo in panic disorder treatment. (3/96)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of clonazepam, in a fixed dose (2 mg/day), compared with placebo in the treatment of panic disorder patients. METHOD: 24 panic disorder patients with agoraphobia were randomly selected. The diagnosis was obtained using the structured clinical interview for DSM-IV. All twenty-four subjects were randomly assigned to either treatment with clonazepam (2 mg/day) or placebo, during 6 weeks. Efficacy assessments included: change from baseline in the number of panic attacks; CGI scores for panic disorder; Hamilton rating scale for anxiety; and panic associated symptoms scale. RESULTS: At the therapeutic endpoint, only one of 9 placebo patients (11.1%) were free of panic attacks, compared with 8 of 13 (61.5%) clonazepam patients (Fisher exact test; p=0,031). CONCLUSION: the results provide evidence for the efficacy of clonazepam in panic disorder patients.  (+info)

Reducing therapist contact in cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care: global measures of outcome in a randomised controlled trial. (4/96)

BACKGROUND: Panic disorder, with and without agoraphobia, is a prevalent condition presenting in general practice. Psychological treatments are effective but are limited by restricted availability. Interest has grown in methods by which the efficiency and thus availability of psychological treatments can be improved, with particular emphasis on reduced therapist contact formats. AIM: To evaluate the relative efficacy in a primary care setting of a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) delivered at three levels of therapist contact: standard contact, minimum contact, and bibliotherapy. METHOD: A total of 104 patients were randomly allocated to receive standard therapist contact, minimum therapist contact or bibliotherapy, with 91 patients completing treatment. All patients received an identical treatment manual and were seen by the same psychologist therapist. Outcome was reported in terms of brief global ratings of severity of illness, change in symptoms, and levels of social disruption. These brief measures were chosen to be suitable for use in general practice and were used at treatment entry and endpoint. RESULTS: The standard therapist contact group had the strongest and most comprehensive treatment response, showing significant differences from the bibliotherapy group on all, and the minimum therapist contact group on some, endpoint measures. Some reduction in efficacy was therefore found for the reduced therapist contact groups. CONCLUSION: The standard therapist contact group showed the greatest treatment efficacy in the present study. As it was of notably shorter duration than many other current formulations of CBT, it represents a useful and efficient treatment for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care.  (+info)

Self-exposure therapy for panic disorder with agoraphobia: randomised controlled study of external v. interoceptive self-exposure. (5/96)

BACKGROUND: Exposure to external phobic cues is an effective therapy for panic/agoraphobia but the value of exposure to interoceptive cues is unclear. AIMS: Randomised controlled comparison in panic/agoraphobia of the effects of (a) external, (b) interceptive or (c) combined external and interoceptive self-exposure to (d) control subjects. METHOD: Eighty out-patients were randomised to a control group or to one of three forms of self-exposure treatment (external, interoceptive, or combined). Each treatment included seven sessions over 10 weeks and daily self-exposure homework. Assessments were at pre- and post-treatment and up to 1 year post-entry. Assessors remained blind during treatment. RESULTS: The three self-exposure groups improved significantly and similarly at post-treatment and up to 1-year followup, and significantly more than did the control subjects. Rates of improvement on main outcome measures averaged 60% at post-treatment and 77% at follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: The three methods of self-exposure were equally effective in reducing panic and agoraphobic symptoms in the short- and long-term.  (+info)

Neurobiological correlates of panic disorder and agoraphobia. (6/96)

Panic Disorder and agoraphobia offer considerable diagnostic and management challenges, particularly in general practice. We describe a typical case of panic disorder in a young adult. The recent advances in our understanding of brain functions can be used to explain to a certain extent the biologic basis of panic disorder. A hypothetical model integrating current views on panic disorder and agoraphobia has been proposed. The management principles including the role of cognitive therapy and pharmacotherapy have been discussed.  (+info)

Smoking modulates neuroendocrine responses to ipsapirone in patients with panic disorder. (7/96)

Reduced 5-HT1A-receptor responsiveness has been reported in patients with panic disorder(PD) and/or agoraphobia (PDA). Although many of these patients are regular smokers, it has not been examined whether psychological or neurobiological effects induced by the selective 5-HT1A-receptor agonist, ipsapirone, are affected by the smoking status of the patients. In order to clarify this question neuroendocrine challenges with oral doses of ipsapirone (0.3 mg/kg) and placebo were performed in 39 patients with PDA, and results were compared between patients who smoked (>10 cigarettes per day, n = 17) and patients who had been non-smokers for at least two years (n = 22). Patients who were smokers (but did not smoke during the challenge procedure) had significantly reduced baseline concentrations of cortisol and a significantly lower body temperature. In comparison to placebo, administration of ipsapirone was associated with significant increases of various psychological symptoms and plasma cortisol concentrations. The subgroup of PD patients who were smokers showed significantly higher cortisol responses to ipsapirone than non-smokers. In conclusion, smoking status has to be taken into account when assessing the responsiveness of 5-HT1A receptors in patients with psychiatric disorders. The prevention of smoking during challenge sessions might not be the ideal approach in heavy smokers, since sudden abstinence from smoking is likely to affect neurobiological and possibly psychological responses to ipsapirone.  (+info)

Respiratory panic disorder subtype and sensitivity to the carbon dioxide challenge test. (8/96)

The aim of the present study was to verify the sensitivity to the carbon dioxide (CO2) challenge test of panic disorder (PD) patients with respiratory and nonrespiratory subtypes of the disorder. Our hypothesis is that the respiratory subtype is more sensitive to 35% CO2. Twenty-seven PD subjects with or without agoraphobia were classified into respiratory and nonrespiratory subtypes on the basis of the presence of respiratory symptoms during their panic attacks. The tests were carried out in a double-blind manner using two mixtures: 1) 35% CO2 and 65% O2, and 2) 100% atmospheric compressed air, 20 min apart. The tests were repeated after 2 weeks during which the participants in the study did not receive any psychotropic drugs. At least 15 of 16 (93.7%) respiratory PD subtype patients and 5 of 11 (43.4%) nonrespiratory PD patients had a panic attack during one of two CO2 challenges (P = 0.009, Fisher exact test). Respiratory PD subtype patients were more sensitive to the CO2 challenge test. There was agreement between the severity of PD measured by the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) Scale and the subtype of PD. Higher CGI scores in the respiratory PD subtype could reflect a greater sensitivity to the CO2 challenge due to a greater severity of PD. Carbon dioxide challenges in PD may define PD subtypes and their underlying mechanisms.  (+info)

Agoraphobia is the fear of being in public places with no easy escape. People suffering from this phobia might become anxious when in a room full of people or in an elevator where it would be hard to escape without embarrassment. In extreme cases, patients can become too frightened to leave their home, making it necessary to receive an agoraphobia evaluation and treatment. Agoraphobia can sometimes become debilitating because it is accompanied by panic attacks. After phobia therapy with a therapist experienced in agoraphobia, patients might find that their fear is reduced.. ...
The Fear and Avoidance Scales (FAS) is an 11-item questionnaire consisting of two subscales that measure features of agoraphobia and claustrophobia and that were demonstrated to be valid Guttman scales in a British clinical population. The purposes of the study reported here were to replicate the scale characteristics in the United States and to determine if improvement during treatment would follow the sequence predicted by the hierarchy implied in the scales. The FAS was given to 25 female agoraphobics before and after behavioural treatment. A principal components analysis replicated the agoraphobia and claustrophobia factors established in the British sample. Scalogram analyses showed that the Claustrophobia subscale of the FAS was a valid Guttman scale in the US sample whereas the Agoraphobia subscale yielded a high coefficient of reproducibility but a low coefficient of scalability. Treatment reduced the patients fears and avoidances in the predicted sequence since for both scales the hierarchy of
Objective: This study aims to evaluate the differential predictive values of age, age of onset and duration of illness on paroxetine and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) outcome in late-life panic disorder with agoraphobia. Method: Patients 60 years and older with a confirmed diagnosis of panic disorder with agoraphobia (n = 49) were randomly assigned to paroxetine (40 mg/day) treatment, individual CBT or a waiting-list control condition. Multiple regression analyses were conducted per treatment arm with post-treatment avoidance behaviour and agoraphobic cognitions as the dependent variables. Results: Higher age at onset and shorter duration of illness were predictors of superior outcomes following CBT, although these variables did not influence the treatment effects of paroxetine. Conclusions: In late-life agoraphobic panic disorder, chronological age has no impact on treatment modality outcome. In older patients with a late disease onset or shorter duration of illness, CBT is to be ...
Anxiety disorders are the most common group of mental illnesses, with lifetime prevalence estimates ranging between 10-30% (Kessler et al 2007). They are an economic burden on society and the sixth largest cause of disability globally (Baxter et al 2014; Fineberg et al 2013). Suffering from an anxiety disorder is distressing, with affected individuals reporting adverse effects on quality of life comparable to sufferers of major depressive disorder, and in excess of the population norm (Mendlowicz and Stein 2000). Panic disorder with agoraphobia is especially prevalent and one of the most handicapping anxiety disorders.. Although the efficacy of psychological treatment for panic disorder with agoraphobia has been the subject of a great deal of research (Sanchez-Meca, Rosa-Alcazar, Marin-Martinez & Gomez-Conesa, 2010), studies comparing cognitive-behavioral therapy and exposure in vivo have regularly been underpowered to detect small to moderate differences.. Therefore, the primary purpose of the ...
For some people, leaving home can be a reason to panic. Translated from Greek as fear of the marketplace, agoraphobia refers to a fear of any place where escape may be difficult, including large open spaces or areas with crowds, as well as various means of travel. People with agoraphobia may avoid situations such as being alone outside of the home, traveling in a car, bus, or airplane, being in a crowded area, being in enclosed spaces such as shops and cinemas, or being on a bridge or in an elevator.

Despite all the research being done on the anxiety disorders - an activity that has accelerated in the last few years - none of the theories that are tested in the various types of studies is adequate to explain what causes phobias and panic. The explanation is probably not far off, however. As they are now propounded, theories about the causes of different types of anxiety disorders tend to cluster either around psychological and social factors or around biological factors. Simple phobias are usually explained in terms of early experience and learning, while agoraphobia and panic (and sometimes social phobia) are becoming increasingly understood as at least partially biological in origin. Most likely, all phobias and panic result from a mixture of influences, although that mixture probably changes with the type of phobia and individual differences among patients. Many theories reflect an implicit assumption that the more serious disorders, such as panic attacks and agoraphobia, are more likely ...
In cognitive therapy, panic control would perhaps be viewed as one of several useful measures aimed at changing an agoraphobics belief in the harmfulness of panic symptoms. In practice, cognitive therapy experiments, such as those described above, have to incorporate exposure, which is a key element of behavioral therapy.. There is, in fact, a considerable degree of overlap between the two approaches. The behavioral approach to agoraphobia, based on exposure therapy, has been proved to be effective in most cases and has also been shown to bring about cognitive changes. Many experts believe that the effectiveness of purely cognitive treatments has not been established or is inferior to that of behavioral therapy. The same view also tends to be taken with regard to combined therapies which have been tried. However, both behavioral and cognitive approaches have been proved valuable in the treatment of panic disorder.. The fact that a high percentage of agoraphobics are helped by behavioral ...

The ADA fails to address behavior disorders in general and phobias in particular. This Comment proposes that the EEOC take two actions. First, the EEOC should pass administrative rules that settle the question of which standards to use in determining whether an individual is mentally impaired. Second, and more impor tantly, the EEOC should issue interpretive guidance that acknowledges the burdens facing persons with hidden behavioral anomalies and phobias, and gives these persons additional help under the Act. Part II of this Comment describes the ADA generally. It explains the Acts purpose and summarizes the Acts legal requirements. Part III describes the legal requirements for bringing a mental impairment case under the ADA. Cases decided under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are used to illustrate the legal hurdles that face an ADA plaintiff and to provide guidance as to how similar cases would be decided under the ADA. Finally, Part IV of this Comment examines some of the pragmatic concerns of

When I think back to my earliest memories, I started life as a very sensitive little boy, happy and contented until my first day at school. I went from a safe happy home to a catholic school, which had an atmosphere of fear and violence. On my first day, a very old nun called Mother Francesca confronted me. This creature was completely draped in black, her face was highly wrinkled and she had intense, vicious brown eyes glaring at me through small round glasses. She had a very large class to teach. Prep and grade one was combined in a very large room. Mother Francesca kept discipline with a leather strap. There were certain children who she singled out as troublemakers and she would strap them relentlessly until they were crying for mercy. These were five-year-old children. Luckily, I was not singled out for special treatment, but I was terrified of becoming one. On my first day, after my mother had dropped me off at school, I tried to get out the door to run home and I can still remember Mother ...

When I was a teenager, I developed an anxiety disorder that culminated in such terrifying episodes of extreme panic and agoraphobia, that my life basically stopped for a few years. I couldnt go out because of the fear and the humiliation of having a panic attack and it got to the point, I had them round the clock, so I wasnt sleeping or eating much. I was a mess :( It was brought on by a bad situation at home coupled with witnessing the death of a friend when I was 16. I felt that I had nowhere to turn and I had no support from adults. I bounced around for years after that just coping (the UK at that time didnt really have great mental health care) but it left a scar very deep and it has taken YEARS of therapy to get to the point where I am in control of my anxiety.

My therapists tentative ddx is agoraphobia, anxiety disorder, depression and low self-esteem which sounds right to me except the last. Ive been depressed more or less since I was a teenager; Im content to live or die with it; its part of who I am. And Ive had experience with panic attacks but never this severe. Now, at their worst, they are dissociative -- or at least I think they are. Paradoxically and paralytically, its an extreme of self-consciousness; I feel myself losing my wits and the more I try to compensate the worse it gets until there is some tipping point and I lose my sense of identity and have had at times the classic out of body experience. Every cure Ive tried more or less mimics my disease: anti-depressants, benzos, etc., make me feel mentally gluey and dull to the point that I am no longer me. Also, I think a decade of working and living online has rewired my brain. I know ADHD is common and Ive read plausible arguments that longterm computer use is a highly ...
In some, but not all cases of agoraphobia, panic disorder is the primary cause. You can blame this, in large part, on a little part of your brain called the amygdala.. The amygdala stores memories of events based on the intensity of the emotional reaction to a given event. If a particular place becomes associated with the intense physical and emotional responses associated with fear, the amygdala will regularly trigger fear and even panic attacks when you are in that particular place again. This causes you to believe that the two are linked. You may start to notice the association and avoid that place, hoping it will decrease your future panic attacks.. Unfortunately, if you have a panic disorder, it means that you are just as likely to experience an attack in one place as in another. So while you may start to avoid one place because it seems to trigger panic attacks, youll eventually have one somewhere else and feel like you have to avoid that too.. Over time, more and more places become ...

Panic Disorder - About 6 million American adults ages 18 and older have panic disorder in a given year. The median age of onset is 24 years old. About one in three people with panic disorder develop agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a condition in which the individual becomes afraid of being in any place or situation where escape might be difficult or help unavailable in the event of a panic attack. Panic attacks are intense anxiety states of panic, fear, or dread that can come upon a person instantly, with or without a trigger from surroundings. Some panic attacks are accompanied with phobias. Panic attacks are accompanied by such symptoms as shortness of breath, racing heartbeat, and a fear of dying or going crazy. No one really knows the terror of panic unless they have the disorder.

Before therapy, all patients receive a clinical examination to ensure that no contraindications for participating (like cardiac defects or serious central nervous system diseases) are present.

I am currently 22 years old and have been suffering with panic disorder/agoraphobia for just over 2 full years now. My biggest fear has pretty much been of being bipolar. I saw my GP about a year ago and he mentioned something about me showing bipolar tendencies (I was having a panic attack at the time, and my partner said I misunderstood). Anyhow, naturally I saw my psychiatrist following that visit and asked him about the possibility of me being bipolar, he asked a few questions and decided I wasnt showing any symptoms whatsoever and told me not to worry about it. I had a nurse tell me the same thing. I realize that people with panic disorder have an awful, awful habit of obsessing about physical or mental illnesses, yet I still cant seem to trust that there is nothing else wrong with me aside from my much debilitating panic disorder. I seem to worry about it most when I cannot sleep. I have been experiencing some extremely restless nights filled with anxiety, hyper arousal/ hyper vigilance, ...

Do you have rushes of fear accompanied by a pounding heart, trembling, dizziness, and feelings of unreality that make you think youre sick, dying, or losing your mind? Do these feelings interfere with your normal daily routine, or prevent you from doing things you would normally do? If you are prone to panic attacks and constantly worry about when the next attack may come, you may suffer from panic disorder and/or agoraphobia.
The anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobia, social phobia, agoraphobia, and panic disorder. In addition to the specific symptoms of these disorders, there may be a common experience of anxiety and even dysphoria across the conditions, and of course recourse to the same drug or choice of drugs for treatment. This overlap probably occurs because of universal dimensions of distress or negative affectivity, a shared genetic predisposition, and a common neurobiology Evidence of shared genes is still based mainly on twin studies, but the shared neurobiology can be investigated directly by the investigation of emotional or cognitive bias either behaviorally or using functional brain imaging. This intermediate phenotype can then provide a substrate for understanding and developing medicines and psychological treatments.

After having a panic attack and going to an emergency room.. My diagnosis of whats wrong changed a few times. The problem started as lightheadedness and a general agoraphobia to going in any areas like the place I had a panic attack in, or going to any farther away areas. At first the panic attack was guessed to be cause by dehydration, which was ruled out by a blood test. Then the next diagnosis was anxiety. Upon seeing a psychologist a few times, I dont think its that either. After that, I went to an MD who said I have a slightly underactive thyroid. Next, I thought maybe the dizziness had something to do with noises and vibrations, so I went to an ear doctor. So right now, Im thinking that maybe Im anemic? Im pretty pale to begin with, but its tough to say since dizziness could go with so many different problems. And Im not sure if its just because its winter, but my hands are cold almost all the time, and if I go from a sitting to standing position, sometimes my eyes will black out ...

Shortly after Charles Darwin returned to England from his famous Beagle voyage to the Gal‡pagos and other islands in the southern oceans, he holed up as a virtual recluse for the rest of his life. What was wrong with him? Panic disorder and agoraphobia, or fear of open spaces, suggests a report in todays Journal of the American Medical Association. The disorder may have had profound implications for science: Had it not been for this illness, says the JAMA article, his theory of evolution might not have become the all-consuming passion that produced On the Origin of Species.. When he was in his early 20s, Darwin led an active life of travel and exploration that culminated in the 5-year voyage on the Beagle. But by the age of 28, he began to experience attacks of fear and soon moved with his wife to a country house in Kent. Until his death in 1882 at 73, Darwin suffered attacks of severe anxiety, often accompanied by heart palpitations, shortness of breath, feelings of impending doom, ...

It was a second marriage for my parents. I have a half-brother from each parent who lived part of the time with us. Sometimes I was the only child, and sometimes I wasnt. It made for an interesting childhood of constant adaptation and role shifting. At times I ruled the home as queen, but at other times I was lost in the shuffle. The challenges in my tale intensified when my mother had a nervous breakdown during my Kindergarten year. She was diagnosed with agoraphobia, which is the fear of leaving the house. In the beginning of her difficulties, I was sent away to live with relatives in Phoenix for a couple of months. I remember having trouble adapting to my aunt and uncles household and the differences there. In those days, my mother was considered just plain crazy and there were no medications to help her cope. The discovery of medications and the medicalization of mental illness have played significant roles in changing the way society views the mentally ill. My dad adapted to our ...

From the very first I was on the lookout for anything that might make the class more bearable, for me and for them. For me, slides, music, videocassettes, and now PowerPoint presentations (preferably all in the same lecture!) were in the first instance ways of keeping the fear at bay. Just as it is appropriate to acknowledge the hardships of Lynn Hunts agoraphobia, it is fitting to recognize her as a teacher whose disability called forth her creativity. Such praise is a far cry from the saccharine admiration of overcoming adversity or transcendent inner wisdom that so often characterizes flattery imposed on disabled people. Rather, it underscores the imaginative, pragmatic, and useful ways in which people with disabilities in general deal with their lives and work. There could be significant benefits to research and teaching alike if we fostered a professional environment where scholars were seen as making valuable contributions as historians with disabilities and not despite ...

Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deens professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking. ...
