Unfortunately : Unfortunately this an issue that you, your psychiatrist, and OB will have to discuss and weigh all your options. The medications that are typically used for the treatment of panic attacks are class c drugs, this means that these drugs have not been studied in humans, and have possibly shown some adverse effects in animal studies. A doctor or medical team may decide that the benefits when given these drugs outweigh the potential risk to the fetus, then they are prescribed. Daily panic attacks seem like a justifiable reason to go ahead and begin medical treatment, however your medical team has more information about you and your history and can make a better decision regarding this. Good luck.
