Abstract

The diagnosis of anxiety disorders and major depression can be reliably made based on signs and symptoms. However there are significant limitations to the current system of classification including overlapping criteria, highcomorbidity, and the issue of subthreshold syndromes. The literature on treatment response documents that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors areeffective in the treatment of the various anxiety disorders, including when comorbid major depression is present. The literature also suggests that tricyclic antidepressant medications have superior benefits over selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in major depression. Examination of the functional anatomy of the fear and reward systems may shed light on the underlying processes in the anxiety and depressive disorders. Such an approach points out the importance of addressing avoidance behaviors, which may be more responsive to cognitive behavioral treatments than pharmacological agents. (C) 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
