The susceptibility of an overdamped Markov system fluctuating in a bistable potential of general form is obtained by analytic solution of the Fokker-Planck equation (FPE) for low noise intensities. The results are discussed in the context of the LRT theory of stochastic resonance. They go over into recent results of Hu et al. [Phys. Lett. A 172 (1992) 21] obtained from the FPE for the case of a symmetrical potential, and they coincide with the LRT results of Dykman et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 65 (1990) 2606; JETP Lett. 52 (1990) 144; Phys. Rev. Lett. 68 (1992) 2985] obtained for the general case of bistable systems.
