Background Self-administered cognitive behavior therapy (SCBT) has been shown to be an effective alternative to therapist-delivered treatment for panic disorder (PD). However, it is unknown whether combining SCBT and antidepressants can improve treatment. This trial evaluated the efficacy of SCBT and sertraline, alone or in combination, in PD. Method Patients (n=251) were randomized to 12 weeks of either placebo drug, placebo drug plus SCBT, sertraline, or sertraline plus SCBT. Those who… Expand
Efficacy and Acceptability Comparisons of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Drugs, and Their Combination for Panic Disorder in Adults: a Network Meta-analysis
TLDR
It is found that most drugs are effective against panic disorder, but they exhibit different acceptability and tolerability profiles. Expand
Adding psychotherapy to antidepressant medication in depression and anxiety disorders: a meta‐analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that combined treatment appears to be more effective than treatment with antidepressant medication alone in major depression, panic disorder, and OCD, and these effects remain strong and significant up to two years after treatment. Expand
Antidepressants versus placebo for panic disorder in adults.
TLDR
Low-quality evidence was found that revealed a benefit for antidepressants as a group in comparison with placebo in terms of efficacy measured as failure to respond, and treatment acceptability, measured by total number of dropouts for any reason. Expand
Pharmacology of cognitive enhancers for exposure-based therapy of fear, anxiety and trauma-related disorders
TLDR
The current body of research reveals important new insights into the neurobiology and neurochemistry of fear extinction and holds significant promise for pharmacologically-augmented psychotherapy as an improved approach to treat trauma and anxiety-related disorders in a more efficient and persistent way promoting enhanced symptom remission and recovery. Expand
The efficacy of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy in treating depressive and anxiety disorders: a meta‐analysis of direct comparisons
TLDR

Expand
Comparative efficacy and acceptability of antidepressants and benzodiazepines for the treatment of panic disorder: A systematic review and network meta-analysis.
TLDR
Escitalopram and venlafaxine as well as benzodiazepines may be effective choices as treatments for PD with relatively good acceptability, which still needs to be confirmed by high-quality RCTs. Expand
Trajectories of Change Across Outcomes in Intensive Treatment for Adolescent Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia
TLDR
Examination of the rate and shape of change across an 8-day intensive cognitive behavioral therapy for adolescent panic disorder with and without agoraphobia found overall panic severity showed linear change, decreasing throughout treatment, and fear and avoidance ratings both showed cubic change. Expand
Media-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy and behavioural therapy (self-help) for anxiety disorders in adults.
TLDR
Randomised controlled trials of media-delivered behavioural or cognitive behavioural therapy in adults with anxiety disorders (other than post-traumatic stress disorder) compared with no intervention or compared with face-to-face therapy suggested benefit for secondary outcome measures, but this evidence was of low to moderate quality. Expand
Pharmacological treatment of panic disorder.
TLDR
A comprehensive database has developed and precise recommendations can be provided for treating patients with panic disorder and combining drug treatment with cognitive behaviour therapy is the most successful treatment strategy for panic disorder. Expand
Predictors of etiological beliefs about panic disorder and impact of beliefs on treatment outcomes
TLDR
Regression analyses revealed that sex, duration of PD and family history of psychiatric illnesses predicted biological etiological beliefs, previous history of psychotherapy predicted environmental etiological Beliefs, and age, impaired functioning, and measures of "fear of fear" predicted multiple etiology beliefs about PD.
