Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder. It can cause panic attacks and an overwhelming feeling that you have a loss of control, even when there is no real danger.
Out-of-the-blue panic attacks can severely impact your life and the lives of those around you. It is important to seek treatment if your panic attacks occur more than “once in a while,” or are dangerous to your health.
Treatments typically include medication, therapy, or a combination of both.
Anti-anxiety medications may be prescribed by your doctor. It is imperative to take your medication as intended. Do not skip doses or let your medicine run out.
Therapy is also beneficial for patients with anxiety. We strongly believe that you should feel empowered, respected, and heard– that’s where healing begins. When your plate is so full of work, school, family, kids, marriage, and more, it’s only human nature to need to talk through some of it in a safe, non-judgemental space. Laying everything out in the open with the guidance of a trained professional allows us to understand and improve upon the ways we think and act.
