The main treatment options for panic disorder include medications and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), either separately or in combination.


Antidepressant medications have been found to be effective in preventing panic attacks, even in the absence of depression. These medications help regulate anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): 

CBT is particularly effective in addressing panic disorder. It helps individuals identify negative thoughts and teaches them how to challenge and manage these irrational thoughts. CBT provides techniques for controlling anxiety symptoms, ultimately reducing the likelihood of experiencing a panic attack.
It's essential to consult with a mental health specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific situation. They can work with you to decide whether medication, therapy, or a combination of both is the best approach to manage your panic disorder.
