Abstract

Anxiety disorders are frequently co-morbid with bipolar disorders (BP). Anxiety symptoms can have a great impact on course of illness and patient's quality of life. Olanzapine is the first antipsychotic approved as a mood stabilizing agent. In this paper two cases of BP 1 disorder where panic attacks co-occur treated with olanzapine were presented. In both cases olanzapine showed very good effects in treatment of panic symptoms within the course of BP disorder.
