The patient is a 58-year-old married white woman, referred by her primary care physician because he felt that her skin rashes were very likely caused by anxiety. He had recently started her on alprazolam (Xanax) 0.5 mg/day. She has had no previous psychiatric treatment. Her other medical problems include hypercholesterolemia, glaucoma, hypothyroidism, and leg pain. Prescribed medications were conjugated estrogen (Premarin) and levothyroxine (Synthroid), in addition to alprazolam.​​
