Abstract
The primary indication for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is major depressive disorder, especially with melancholic, psychotic, or catatonic features. In addition, ECT is an effective treatment for symptoms of acute mania and schizophrenia. It is also a good and safe primary treatment option for psychiatric disorders during pregnancy. However, the effects of ECT in both chronic psychosis and anxiety disorders are limited. In this study, we present two cases of patients treated with ECT, which was ineffective.

Key words: electroconvulsive therapy, psychosis, anxiety disorders
