What treatments are available?
Fortunately, most individuals who seek treatment for Panic Disorder and other anxiety disorders see significant improvement and enjoy a better quality of life. A variety of treatment options exist including cognitive-behavioural theraphy, exposure theraphy, anxiety management and medications. One, or a combination of these, may be recommended. It is important to remember that there is no single “right” treatment. What works for one persona may or may not be the best choice for someone else. A course of treatment should be tailored to your individual needs. Ask your doctor to explain why a particular type of treatment is being recommended, what other options are available and what you need to do to fully participate in your recovery.
