Abstract

Abstract Of 74 panic disorder subjects followed up after 7 years, five reported serious suicide attempts and three had completed suicide. Compared with subjects who had not made serious attempts, the serious suicide attempters (including the three suicides) were younger, and fewer of them were married. Also, the serious attempt group had an earlier, more gradual onset of illness. More of the serious attempters had personality disorders and coexisting major depression. At the time of original assessment, the serious attempters had more severe symptoms. These data suggest that among patients with panic disorder, serious suicidal behavior is associated with more severe psychopathology.
