In brief: Everyone unique

In brief: The One That Works
Fortunately we find ourselves in a time where there are a number of medcations that can effectively treat panic disorder (pd).
Vou ask which agent is best? The best is the one that works for you. Here is a listing of medcations that have been fda approved for pd: fluoxetine, sertraline, paroxetine, venlafaxine, alprazolam, clonazepam, and lorazepam. Other non-fda approved drugs may work as well.
