Anxiety Depression Treatment

Choosing a Panic Attack Drug


When a drug is effective, it prevents or greatly reduces the number of panic attacks. A drug may have to be taken for a long time, because panic attacks often return once the drug is discontinued. When it comes to needing a panic attack drug, it probably means you have been dealing with panic attacks for quite some time, while more than likely doing everything you can to prevent them until you are finally faced with the last resort; using a panic attack drug.

What are the different types of panic attack medications available?

  • BETA BLOCKERS
  • TRICYCLIC ANTIDEPRESSANTS
  • BENZODIAZEPINES
  • MONOAMINE OXIDASE INHIBITORS (MAOIs)
  • SELECTIVE SEROTONIN REUPTAKE INHIBITORS (SSRIs)

How to Choose the right panic attack Medication?

There are so many different kinds of panic attack medication to choose from, the challenge of choosing the right one for you can get overwhelming. So seeking a physician's advice can help greatly on your quest. Before you do see a doctor, it is important to do your homework on each panic attack drug your doctor may suggest.

Although a doctor can offer the most qualified advice, your body is the one in question and because of that you need to know the side effects and other pertinent information that comes along with the panic attack drug you choose to use. By finding a list of qualified medications to start, you can easily complete a bit of research on each drug which will give you a good idea of what to expect in regard to side effects and long term solutions.

Unfortunately panic attack medication is often used as long term solutions and actually, in many cases, by distorting the symptoms of the anxiety disorder and introducing new symptoms by way of side effects they can actually make the condition worse and prevent recovery.
