In brief: Benzodiazepines/CBT

If you are hyperventilating due to anxiety, it leads me to think you suffer from panic episodes.
Many panic episodes are not triggered by a situation or thought, and in such cases, people usually respond well to treatment with fast-acting benzodiazepines such as alprazolam. If panic is brought about by a situation or thought(s), then cbt may help in lieu of (or addition to) medication.
