Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two patients with agoraphobic symptoms and major depressive disorder exhibit dexamethasone nonsuppression. Antidepressant pharmacotherapy was associated with remission of depressive symptoms and DST normalization. This improvement predated remission of agoraphobic symptoms by 1-2 months. It is suggested that agoraphobia was secondary to the depression in both cases.
