How is panic disorder treated?

ANSWER

Fortunately, panic disorder is a treatable condition. Psychotherapy and medications have both been used, either individually or in combination, for successful treatment of panic disorder. If you need medication, your doctor may prescribe anti-anxiety medications, certain anti-depressants or sometimes certain anti-convulsant drugs that can alleviate anxiety. You could also receive a class of heart medications known as beta-blockers to help prevent or control the episodes that comprise panic disorder.
