Background The co-occurrence of anxiety disorders with other mental, addictive, and physical disorders has important implications for treatment and for prediction of clinical course and associated morbidity. Method Cross-sectional and prospective data on 20 291 individuals from the Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) study were analysed to determine one-month, current disorders, one-year incidence, and one-year and lifetime prevalence of anxiety, mood, and addictive disorders, and to identify… 

Anxiety disorders and comorbid depression in community dwelling older adults

TLDR
It is suggested that comorbid depression in older adults with anxiety disorders may be less prevalent than previously suggested and the relation of current anxiety disorders with past depression is substantial.

TLDR
The findings suggest that the age-related decline in the prevalence of anxiety disorders is not simply due to a failure to detect cases in older people, as has been previously suggested.

Multiple anxiety disorder comorbidity in patients with mood spectrum disorders with psychotic features.

TLDR
Multiple associations of panic disorder, OCD, and social phobia are not rare among patients with affective psychoses and are likely to be associated with more severe psychopathology than is found in patients without anxiety disorders.

TLDR
Evaluated studies found that among anxiety disorders, phobic disorders have been shown to often precede the onset of opiate dependence, and the identification of substance-induced versus independent anxiety disorder has important treatment implication.
