In a panic attack the patient is already ready to write a will, but first of all, he will look into his medicine chest. Sometimes the only feeling that all the life-saving drugs are at hand makes it easier.
Preparations for panic attacks are of several types: plant (light), vegetable with the addition of chemistry and only chemical, which without a prescription can not be obtained. Each category has its pros and cons. The choice of the agent is best entrusted to the doctor; self-medication can aggravate the problem.
To cure a panic disorder in most cases, it is necessary to take antidepressants. Despite their name, they help not only to get rid of depression but also help to reduce anxiety and recover from panic attacks. Antidepressants, unlike tranquilizers, do not cause dependence. Side effects of antidepressants rarely appear, as a rule, are not expressed and are present only in the first days of treatment. To minimize the side effects of antidepressants, a gradual increase in their dose is used. For the effect of treatment to be more persistent, antidepressants must be taken within a few months, gradually reducing their dose.
