No time frame : Panic attacks dont have a time frame. Everyones varies. If your panic attacks are not under control there is help out there. Se a psychiatrist who can help you with medications. There are also counselors who can teach you coping skills. There are books which can provide self help as well. Be proactive and you can live panic free. Good luck.
