Meds could be: Helpful. Talking therapy ranks really high. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be quite effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night ; good nutrition with 5 servings of veggies ; 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, qi gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises ; meditation. Don't isolate - spend time with friends and stay active.

Exposure therapy: There is a lot of validation for treatments that involve gradually increased exposure to the symptoms of panic coupled with relaxation training. Ssri meds are often prescribed for anxiety as well as for depression, but you can also learn how to manage, decrease, ; sometimes completely eliminate the problem by working with a therapist who specializes in exposure-based therapy for panic.
