Author information

Department of Psychiatry, University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School, Dallas 75216.


Many depressive disorders predominate in women. Other psychiatric disorders more prevalent in women than men often occur concomitantly with depression. A variety of these disorders show a premenstrual patterning of symptoms and are responsive to antidepressants. Migraine headaches are also more common in women, show a premenstrual patterning, and are responsive to antidepressants. Other neuropsychiatric and endocrine-related disorders predominating in women are discussed in this review. Greater attention to the special aspects of neuropsychiatric disorders in women may improve diagnosis and treatment.
