Abstract

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.
