Panic Disorder is a treatable illness.  The firstline treatment for Panic Disorder is psychotherapy.  Psychotherapy helps the client talk through strategies for understanding and coping with their disorder.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can help a client learn to recognize and change their thought patterns and behaviors.  The therapist will also help the client identify possible triggers for their panic attacks.

Sometimes clients require medication in combination with therapy.  Some of the most common medications used to treat panic disorder are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as Paxil or Zoloft.
