Panic Attack Treatment: Discover Some Of The Panic Attack Treatments Available.
Usually, the first person that most people would call if they were looking for a panic attack treatment would be their family doctor. I certainly did after encountering my first panic episode. However, back in the far distant days of 1985, much less was known about panic than is known today and there were far fewer medications available. Today, there are several for your physician to choose from and finding the right one for the individual usually comes down to a little trial and error.
Azapirones may be one of the choices. It is found in many antidepressants and is used for the calming effect it has upon the nervous system.
Benzodiazepines may be another of your doctor’s choices. These deal more directly with the panic producing anxiety and are more widely used as a panic attack treatment. However, it should be pointed out that this category of drug is highly addictive and should only be taken under very strict medical supervision.
Personally, I never warmed to the idea of taking medication. I’m not in any way implying that taking medication is wrong. I’m just saying that it was, and still is for that matter, my preference not to do so even for something as minor as a headache.
There are all sorts of ways to control panic without taking prescription drugs. Some I’ve tried, other’s I’ve heard good things about from fellow sufferers. There are way too many to list here and I wouldn’t want you to be swayed by my negative comments if I had found that something didn’t work for me. An Internet search with the words “natural panic attack treatment” should bring forth some of the things that are available.
Now controlling panic attacks and totally eradicating them from your life are two entirely different things. As I said above, I tried some natural ways of controlling my panic attacks and, yes, I did witness for myself a vast improvement. However, there were still days when I was landed back in the pit of despair following another “out-of-the-blue” panic episode. To my mind, this just wasn’t good enough. What I wanted was a totally natural treatment that would eliminate the panic attacks from my life completely and permanently. And, albeit after many years of searching, I found it.
