Thank you for asking me to answer this query.Use of anxiolytics (drugs which reduce anxiety) like Buspar/Buspirone or Lorazepam/Ativan or clonazepam/Clonafit will usually relieve the panic attacks in the initial phases of therapy.Practice deep breathing and relaxing your mind and body.Focussing your mind with your eyes closed on a happy situation or scene will enable you to stop the panic reaction from continuing,the drugs ,Benzodiazepines or Buspirone ,are usually effective within 30 minutes to an hour.Deep breathing,not adding further to fear,not being afraid of the unknown ,prayers and meditation will help.You have to take the SSRI/SNRI drugs for a longer period of time,avoid alcohol and smoking/tobacco as these will make matters worse.Spending time with family and friends will help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
