(E) Suicide, the eighth leading cause of death in the United States, accounts for more than 30,000 deaths per year. The suicide rate in men (18.7 suicides per 100,000 men in 1998) is more than four times that in women (4.4 suicides per 100,000 women in 1998). In females, suicide rates remain relatively constant beginning in the midteens. In males, suicide rates are stable from the late teenage years until the late 70s, when the rate increases substantially to 41 suicides per 100,000 persons annually in men 75 to 84 years of age. (Mann, 302–311)

(E) Panic disorder is a syndrome characterized by unexpected and unprovoked attacks of anxiety that produce both cognitive and physical symptoms. The lifetime prevalence of panic disorder in the general population is 1.6%. The disorder has a unimodal distribution, peaking in the third decade of life. Panic disorder affects more females than males. The major distinguishing feature of panic disorder is the combination of cognitive and physical symptoms. Onset is rapid, peaking within 10 minutes, and the attack lasts about 60 minutes. The typical patient has 2 to 4 attacks per week, often accompanied by anticipatory anxiety. A patient who sustains 4 panic attacks in 4 weeks or 1 or more attacks followed by 4 weeks of continuous anticipatory anxiety may be said to have panic disorder. (Zun, 92–96)
