334 Hungarian outpatients with DSM-IV diagnoses of unipolar major depression, bipolar I & II disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, & pure panic disorder were interviewed regarding their smoking habits & previous suicide attempts. With the exception of patients with panic disorder, the rate of prior suicide attempt(s) was much higher among current & lifetime smokers than among never smokers in all diagnostic groups. The difference was statistically significant only for lifetime smokers with a diagnosis of unipolar depression & for current & lifetime smokers diagnosed with schizophrenia. (18 refs.)
