Panic Disorder is typically treated with medication, mindfullness, and therapy. SSRIs, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhbitors, work by blocking the reabsorption of serotonin in the brain, leading to an increase in the overall amount of serotonin between neurons. These medications take 4-6 weeks to show full effects, and are often paired with benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines increase the activity of GABA receptors, which then inhibit the part of the brain that senses danger called the limbic system. Benzodiazepines are often not used long term due to their effects on memory and the quick tolerance that develops. Other medications used for Panic Disorder include MAO-Inhibitors, SNRIs, mood stabilizers, and dopamine antagonists. Therapy focuses on visualization or real-life exposure to triggers as well as mindfulness and meditation to decrease the overactivity of the nervous system.
