The frequency & type of reported suicidal & aggressive ideation & behaviors that occur during the panic state were assessed in patients with panic disorders. 19 patients with pure panic disorder & 28 patients with comorbid major depression were studied. Findings indicate that suicidal & aggressive ideation & behaviors were often directly associated with the panic state. Most at risk are those with comorbid depression & those with coexisting problems regulating aggressive or impulsive behaviors.
