Combo Treatment Best for Anxiety Disorder in Kids

The researchers found that 81 percent of the children receiving cognitive behavior therapy plus Zoloft improved, compared with 60 percent who received cognitive behavior therapy alone and 55 percent who received only Zoloft. Among patients receiving placebo, 24 percent showed improvement.

The study also confirmed the safety of Zoloft. There were no more side effects among children taking the drug than there were among those receiving placebo. Moreover, none of the children taking Zoloft attempted suicide, which has been recognized as a rare side effect of the drug in children.

Dr. David L. Katz, director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine, thinks that the effectiveness of the combination of Zoloft and cognitive behavior therapy is an important message to both doctors and patients.

"What is perhaps most important here is that the combination was superior to either therapy in isolation," Katz said. "In the modern medical age, we tend to bank heavily on advanced technology and wonder drugs.

"This study tells us that we have treatments that
