Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) is a common treatment for panic disorders. CBT is described as “a common type of talk therapy (psychotherapy). You work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way” (Mayo Clinic Staff Print, 2016)

Small things, like exercise and eating healthy will often make big positive changes.

Drug treatments are also sometimes available. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), Serotonin and nor epinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), and Benzodiazepines could be prescribed by a doctor depending on severity of the disorder, and the individual with the complaint.
