Abstract

There are some patients complaining of somatic symptom who has depression. The use of antidepressant to these patients would be quite useful. Patients with dispersion have a variety sort of physical symptom. The evaluation of depression based on physical complaints may be difficult for otorhinolaryngologists, but it is important to do so where possible to increase the focus on the subject's physical illness. The prevalence of somatic complaints in hospitalized patients whose chief complaint was either dizziness or vertigo was very high. These patients were usually accompanied with depression. Then the effect of paroxetine to the patients with tinnitus was investigated. The paroxetine may be effective in treating distressed tinnitus patients with depression and anxiety by reducing their tinnitus severity as well as their depression and anxiety.
