Meds and therapy: I have seen patients get a lot better with medication plus therapy. If there is a specific cause in a ptsd situation, a technique called emdr can work very well. Exercise, regular sleep, relaxation exercises, avoiding excess caffeine…all are important, too.

Panic attacks are common anxiety disorders that are easily treated using cognitive behavioral therapy. We can typically eliminate panic attacks around 90% of the time in less than 10 sessions. Ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a good psychologist.
