A type of anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected panic attacks that last minutes or, rarely, hours. Panic attacks begin with intense apprehension, fear or terror and, often, a feeling of impending doom. Symptoms experienced during a panic attack include dyspnea or sensations of being smothered; dizziness, loss of balance or faintness; choking sensations; palpitations or accelerated heart rate; shakiness; sweating; nausea or other form of abdominal distress; depersonalization or derealization; paresthesias; hot flashes or chills; chest discomfort or pain; fear of dying and fear of not being in control of oneself or going crazy. Agoraphobia may also develop. Similar to other anxiety disorders, it may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
A state of extreme acute, intense anxiety and unreasoning fear accompanied by disorganization of personality function.
Obsessive, persistent, intense fear of open places.
Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.

An anticonvulsant used for several types of seizures, including myotonic or atonic seizures, photosensitive epilepsy, and absence seizures, although tolerance may develop. It is seldom effective in generalized tonic-clonic or partial seizures. The mechanism of action appears to involve the enhancement of GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID receptor responses.
A triazolobenzodiazepine compound with antianxiety and sedative-hypnotic actions, that is efficacious in the treatment of PANIC DISORDERS, with or without AGORAPHOBIA, and in generalized ANXIETY DISORDERS. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p238)

Anxiety experienced by an individual upon separation from a person or object of particular significance to the individual.
A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.
Defense mechanisms involving approach and avoidance responses to threatening stimuli. The sensitizing process involves intellectualization in approaching or controlling the stimulus whereas repression involves unconscious denial in avoiding the stimulus.
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.

Substances that contain a fused three-ring moiety and are used in the treatment of depression. These drugs block the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into axon terminals and may block some subtypes of serotonin, adrenergic, and histamine receptors. However the mechanism of their antidepressant effects is not clear because the therapeutic effects usually take weeks to develop and may reflect compensatory changes in the central nervous system.

Mood-stimulating drugs used primarily in the treatment of affective disorders and related conditions. Several MONOAMINE OXIDASE INHIBITORS are useful as antidepressants apparently as a long-term consequence of their modulation of catecholamine levels. The tricyclic compounds useful as antidepressive agents (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, TRICYCLIC) also appear to act through brain catecholamine systems. A third group (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, SECOND-GENERATION) is a diverse group of drugs including some that act specifically on serotonergic systems.

Excess of high activity monoamine oxidase A gene promoter alleles in female patients with panic disorder. (1/507)

A genetic contribution to the pathogenesis of panic disorder has been demonstrated by clinical genetic studies. Molecular genetic studies have focused on candidate genes suggested by the molecular mechanisms implied in the action of drugs utilized for therapy or in challenge tests. One class of drugs effective in the treatment of panic disorder is represented by monoamine oxidase A inhibitors. Therefore, the monoamine oxidase A gene on chromosome X is a prime candidate gene. In the present study we investigated a novel repeat polymorphism in the promoter of the monoamine oxidase A gene for association with panic disorder in two independent samples (German sample, n = 80; Italian sample, n = 129). Two alleles (3 and 4 repeats) were most common and constituted >97% of the observed alleles. Functional characterization in a luciferase assay demonstrated that the longer alleles (3a, 4 and 5) were more active than allele 3. Among females of both the German and the Italian samples of panic disorder patients (combined, n = 209) the longer alleles (3a, 4 and 5) were significantly more frequent than among females of the corresponding control samples (combined, n = 190, chi2 = 10.27, df = 1, P = 0.001). Together with the observation that inhibition of monoamine oxidase A is clinically effective in the treatment of panic disorder these findings suggest that increased monoamine oxidase A activity is a risk factor for panic disorder in female patients.  (+info)

Plasma anti-serotonin and serotonin anti-idiotypic antibodies are elevated in panic disorder. (2/507)

The psychoneuroimmunology of panic disorder is relatively unexplored. Alterations within brain stress systems that secondarily influence the immune system have been documented. A recent report indicated elevations of serotonin (5-HT) and ganglioside antibodies in patients with primary fibromyalgia, a condition with documented associations with panic disorder. In line with our interest in dysregulated 5-HT systems in panic disorder (PD), we wished to assess if antibodies directed at the 5-HT system were elevated in patients with PD in comparison to healthy volunteers. Sixty-three patients with panic disorder and 26 healthy volunteers were diagnosed by the SCID. Employing ELISA, we measured anti-5-HT and 5-HT anti-idiotypic antibodies (which are directed at 5-HT receptors). To include all subjects in one experiment, three different batches were run during the ELISA. Plasma serotonin anti-idiotypic antibodies: there was a significant group effect [patients > controls (p = .007)] and batch effect but no interaction. The mean effect size for the three batches was .76. Following Z-score transformation of each separate batch and then combining all scores, patients demonstrated significantly elevated levels of plasma serotonin anti-idiotypic antibodies. Neither sex nor age as covariates affected the significance of the results. There was a strong correlation between anti-serotonin antibody and serotonin anti-idiotypic antibody measures. Plasma anti-serotonin antibodies: there was a significant diagnosis effect [patients > controls (p = .037)]. Mean effect size for the three batches was .52. Upon Z-score transformation, there was a diagnosis effect with antibody elevations in patients. Covaried for sex and age, the result falls below significance to trend levels. The data raise the possibility that psychoimmune dysfunction, specifically related to the 5-HT system, may be present in PD. Potential interruption of 5-HT neurotransmission through autoimmune mechanisms may be of pathophysiologic significance in certain patients with panic disorder. It remains to be demonstrated if the peripheral autoimmunity is representative of CNS 5-HT neuronal alterations. Replication appears warranted.  (+info)

A cost-effective approach to the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in a Veterans Affairs Medical Center. (3/507)

In light of the tremendous expansion in the number of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors available to the clinician, the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center considered the advantages and disadvantages of fluoxethine, paroxetine, and sertraline, to determine which agent or agents would be carried on the formulary. The committed recommended sertraline as the preferred agent for the treatment of depression, panic disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess the economic outcome of that decision. The study population consisted of patients at the medical center who were receiving selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors during January through March of 1994 and those were receiving these agents between September 1995 and January 1996. The expanded collection period in 1995-96 was due to a relatively new medical center policy to offer 90-day fills on medication to reduce costs. The extended collection period assured a 100% sample of patients receiving these agents. The 1994 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio was 20 mg:55.6 mg, based on average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline of 32.7 and 90.9 mg, respectively. The cost to the medical center for an average daily dose of fluoxetine was $1.86; sertraline cost $1.22 per day. The 1996 fluoxetine to sertraline dosage equivalency ratio (20 mg:51.3 mg) had not changed significantly since 1994, indicating that the dose of 20 mg of fluoxetine remained very close to a 50-mg dose of sertraline. The average daily doses of fluoxetine and sertraline (34.9 mg and 89.7 mg, respectively) were not significantly different than the 1994 doses. Only 33 patients had been prescribed paroxetine (average daily dose, 32.4 mg). On the basis of these values, the average daily cost of fluoxetine to the medical center was $2.01, compared with $1.18 for sertraline and $1.24 for paroxetine. This $0.83 per patient per day drug acquisition cost difference between fluoxetine and sertraline results in a drug cost reduction of $302,674 per year.  (+info)

The effects of clonazepam on quality of life and work productivity in panic disorder. (4/507)

Although panic disorder has been associated with impaired quality of life (QOL) and financial dependence, no prior study has examined whether a clinical intervention will improve these outcomes. This study examines the effects of clinically titrated doses of clonazepam versus placebo on QOL and work productivity (WP) in patients with panic disorder. QOL and WP were measured in conjunction with a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. The Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and Work Productivity and Impairment questionnaire were used to assess QOL and WP, respectively. Baseline assessments were obtained before randomizing patients to receive clinically titrated doses of clonazepam or placebo. Follow-up assessments were obtained after 6 weeks of therapy with the test drug or at premature termination from the study. Improvement on the SF-36 Mental Health Component Summary scale was more than twice as great with clonazepam than with placebo (P = 0.03). Clonazepam patients improved (P < 0.05) on all five measures of mental health-related QOL, and both measures of physical health-related QOL, and both measures of WP. Placebo patients improved on three of five measures of mental health-related QOL, but on no other measures. Patients with marked improvements on clinical measures of panic disorder severity, especially avoidance and fear of the main phobia, showed the greatest gains on the SF-36 Mental Health Component Summary scale. Clinically titrated doses of clonazepam significantly improved mental health-related QOL and WP in panic disorder patients. Lesser improvements were obtained with placebo.  (+info)

Do family physicians treat older patients with mental disorders differently from younger patients? (5/507)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether there are differences between family physicians' beliefs and treatment intentions regarding older patients with mental disorders and younger patients with similar disorders. Such differences might contribute to older adults' lower rates of mental health service use. DESIGN: Mailed survey. SETTING: Primary care practices in and around Kingston, Ont. PARTICIPANTS: Questionnaires were mailed to 294 general practitioners listed in the 42nd Annual Canadian Medical Directory. Of the 285 eligible physicians, 115 (40%) completed and returned questionnaires. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Physicians' ratings of preparedness to identify and treat, likelihood of treating, likelihood of using each of five different treatment methods, likelihood of referral, preferences for six referral options, and treatment effectiveness with respect to hypothetical older and younger patients with panic disorder or dysthymia. RESULTS: Physicians reported being less prepared to identify and treat older patients than younger patients. In addition, physicians reported being significantly less likely to treat and to refer older patients than younger patients. Finally, physicians reported that both psychotherapy alone, and in combination with pharmacotherapy, were less effective for older patients than for younger patients. CONCLUSIONS: In addition to other possible reasons for older adults' low rates of mental health service use, this study suggests that family physicians' beliefs and treatment intentions could be contributing factors. Changes in medical education aimed at replacing inaccurate beliefs with accurate information regarding older patients might be one way to increase rates of use in this underserved age group, because family physicians play a key role in the mental health care of older adults.  (+info)

Theory and technique in psychodynamic treatment of panic disorder. (6/507)

The authors elaborate psychodynamic factors that are relevant to the treatment of panic disorder. They outline psychoanalytic concepts that were employed to develop a psychodynamic approach to panic disorder, including the idea of unconscious mental life and the existence of defense mechanisms, compromise formations, the pleasure principle, and the transference. The authors then describe a panic-focused psychodynamic treatment based on a psychodynamic formulation of panic. Clinical techniques used in this approach, such as working with transference and working through, are described. Finally, a case vignette is employed to illustrate the relevance of these factors to panic disorder and the use of this treatment.(The Journal of Psychotherapy Practice and Research 1999; 8:234-242)  (+info)

Serotonin and drug-induced therapeutic responses in major depression, obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders. (7/507)

The therapeutic effectiveness of antidepressant drugs in major depression was discovered by pure serendipity. It took over 20 years before the neurobiological modifications that could mediate the antidepressive response were put into evidence. Indeed, whereas the immediate biochemical effects of these drugs had been well documented, their antidepressant action generally does not become apparent before 2 to 3 weeks of treatment. The different classes of antidepressant treatments were subsequently shown to enhance serotonin neurotransmission albeit via different pre- and postsynaptic mechanisms. Clinical trials based on this hypothesis led to the development of treatment strategies producing greater efficacy and more rapid onset of antidepressant action; that, is lithium addition and pindolol combination, respectively. It is expected that the better understanding recently obtained of the mechanism of action of certain antidepressant drugs in obsessive-compulsive and panic disorders will also lead to more effective treatment strategies for those disorders.  (+info)

Dose response of adrenocorticotropin and cortisol to the CCK-B agonist pentagastrin. (8/507)

Cholecystokinin (CCK) is an abundant neurotransmitter in brain. Its functional significance in humans is incompletely understood, but it may modulate activity in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. To explore this hypothesis, we examined the effects of varying doses (0 to 0.8 microgram/kg) of the CCK-B agonist pentagastrin on adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) and cortisol release in healthy human subjects. We also examined anxiety, heart rate (HR), and blood pressure (BP) responses. Pentagastrin induced large (up to 520% increase over baseline), significant and very rapid, dose-dependent elevations in ACTH and cortisol levels. Significant elevations in HR and BP were seen at all doses, without clear dose-response relationships. Anxious distress and symptom responses were also somewhat dose dependent; but hormonal responses were more robustly linked to pentagastrin dose than to these subjective measures. The HPA axis response to the CCK-B agonist pentagastrin may be a direct pharmacological effect. Further work is needed to determine the mechanisms and the physiological significance of CCK-mediated modulation of the human neuroendocrine stress axis.  (+info)

Cognitive model of panic disorder have proposed that panic attacks result from the catastrophic misinterpretation of certain bodily sensations. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for panic disorder aims to change these catastrophic cognitions. CBT intervention successfully caused reduction of catastrophic cognitions and symptomatic improvement in the majority of cases. However there are some patients who fail to modify their catastrophic cognitions or rather experience an increase in them during CBT treatment. It is clinically and theoretically important to understand about cognitive sensitization of panic disorder during CBT sessions. The purpose of the present study is 1) to clarify the baseline characteristics of panic patients who would experience sensitization of their catastrophic cognitions through the CBT treatment, and 2) to examine the course of symptomatic changes for them. Of ninety-five outpatients with panic disorder started the group CBT program for treatment of panic disorder, seventy

This is one-half the dose used in our previous study of PD patients, where the dose may have been too high to provide evidence of hypersensitivity to the agent. Responses of anxiety and nervousness were statistically indistinguishable by analysis of variance in the two groups, replicating our previous findings. Panic attack symptom score (PASS) ratings were significantly higher in the PD group, compared with a trend ...
A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think youre losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.. Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes, and the problem goes away, perhaps when a stressful situation ends. But if youve had recurrent, unexpected panic attacks and spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder.. Although panic attacks themselves arent life-threatening, they can be frightening and significantly affect your quality of life. But treatment can be very effective.. Panic attacks typically begin suddenly, without warning. They can strike at any time - when youre driving a car, at the mall, sound asleep or in the middle of a business meeting.

In this study we administered double-breath inhalation of 35% CO2 and 65% oxygen (O2) to panic disorder patients, social phobics, and normal controls. At baseline, panic disorder patients were characterized by higher pulse, anxiety score, and evidence of hyperventilation. Panic patients and social phobics panicked more often to 35% CO2 than to room air; normal controls did not have a higher rate of panic to CO2 than to room air. However, we did not find significant group differences in anxiety level, physiological measures, or biochemical measures in ...
Panic Disorder is relatively common, with a lifetime prevalence of 3.5 % (Kessler, et al 1994) and characterized by a typically chronic course (Marzol & Pollack, 2000). Affected individuals tend to be high utilizers of general health care services, frequently receiving extensive and unrevealing medical work-ups (Katon, 1997); while the panic disorder itself often goes unrecognized (Sartorious, et al 1993). Panic disorder has a significant negative impact on work, family, and social life (Rubin, et al 2000), and is associated with increased rates of negative life events and diminished overall quality of life (Cramer, et al 2005). Research indicates that the quality of life and well-being of patients with panic disorder is similarly or more impaired than that of patients with serious medical illnesses, such as type II diabetes (Rubin, et al 2000).. Treatment of panic disorder is focused on the reduction of panic attacks, avoidance behavior, and anticipatory anxiety, as well as the resolution of ...
Press Release issued Jan 11, 2018: Symptoms include trembling, nausea, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, numbness, and others. Panic disorders may last for 5-10 minutes, but it can linger for hours. If it is left untreated, panic disorders progress to agoraphobia. Panic disorders diagnosed in patients who experience spontaneous attacks and preoccupied with the anxiety of a recurring panic disorder. Panic disorders usually appear in adolescents and rarely observed in childrens. Treatment includes psychological therapy, medicinal treatment, anxiety management therapies, and others. In medical treatment, antidepressants and benzodiazepines are used when symptoms are severe.
Hyperthyroid, on the other hand, is directly linked to panic attacks. In fact, panic attacks are often considered a symptom of this type of thyroid disease, and in rare cases its considered a warning sign of possibly an undiagnosed thyroid problem.. Now, before you decide to diagnose yourself with a thyroid issue, you should know that panic attacks from hyperthyroid are identical to panic attacks simply from anxiety, and both appear to come for no reason. Dont self-diagnose yourself with a thyroid issue simply because its hard to believe that you have panic attacks. Thats what panic attacks are, and nearly everyone believes they have a thyroid problem first only to find out that they simply have panic attacks. Remember, testing for hyperthyroid is easy and can take place in any doctors office.. But hyperthyroid also does genuinely appear to cause an increase in anxiety, possibly with panic attacks. Why this occurs is very complex. In some cases, it may simply be a physical reaction to the ...

BIOCHEMICAL/PHYSIOLOGICAL CAUSES. It is extremely difficult to study the brain and the underlying causes of psychiatric illness; and understanding the chemistry of the brain is the key to unlocking the mystery of panic disorder. The amygdala is the part of the brain that causes fear and the response to stress . It has been implicated as a vital part of anxiety disorders. Sodium lactate, a chemical that the body produces when muscles are fatigued, and carbon dioxide are known to induce panic attacks. These substances are thought to inhibit the release of neurotransmitters in the brain, which leads to the panic attacks. One hypothesis is that sodium lactate stimulates the amygdala and causes panic attacks. Another hypothesis is that patients with panic disorder have a hypersensitive internal suffocation alarm. This means that the patients brain sends the body false signals that not enough oxygen is being received, causing the affected person to increase his or her breathing rate. Panic disorder ...

Panic attacks are the core symptom of panic disorder. These attacks are recurrent, abrupt in onset and random. The panic attack can manifest itself as intense fear, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, chest pain, palpitations, sweating, trembling, and dizziness and these symptoms can vary in intensity and duration, and can last for several minutes up to hours.. A panic disorder can continue for many years, but if treated successfully, panic attacks do not return at any time and can even never return again. Many people become housebound for decades due to the fear of never knowing when their panic attacks can reoccur.. Some people feel healed since they feel better and because they no longer feel uncomfortable in places they used to avoid. And they may not have had a panic attack for months, even years. If they had an accompanying depression, which is not unusual, the depression may have disappeared.. But, still, that period of remission does not constitute cure, especially if the underlying ...

Panic disorder (PD) is a serious DSM-IV axis I disorder affecting up to 3% of the adult population each year. It is associated with a large burden of disease and extensive economic costs. This study aims to examine the effects and feasibility of the Dont Panic course, a preventive cognitive behavioural intervention in sub-threshold and mild PD. It also compares the effectiveness of two modifications of the course (8 vs. 12 sessions). The method used was a quasi-experimental two-group pre-post design with a baseline measurement (T0) and two follow-up measurements. Follow-ups were at the end of the intervention (T1) and six months later (T2). Primary outcome measure was the Panic Disorder Severity Scale-Self Report. A total of 114 participants suffering from panic attacks (mean age 42 years; 78% female) entered the study. The course participants showed a significant effect on the outcome measures at follow-up. Large effect sizes were found on panic symptoms, on symptoms of agoraphobia and on mental
Panic attacks sufferers know very well their condition during the attacks. The pain and fear they have to pass through is indeed not easy to explain. This can just be felt by the sufferer. Thus it becomes very necessary for a panic sufferer to take up a panic attack program for the sake of his or her better health. The attacks occur due to variety of reasons. There is no solitary reason for a person to get an attack. They occur, on a major ground, due to mental stress and tension and the attacks caused due to this reason are very dangerous. Another reason for getting panic attacks can be alcohol. There are many cases wherein an alcoholic is suffering from sever panic attack problems. They are also hereditary in an individual. The hereditary panic attacks generally depend upon the attacks that the earlier generation had. Thus while choosing the right panic attack program there are many things that are to be taken into consideration, out of which the cause is the chief one ...

You can learn to be assertive and be able to stop worrying about not having control of your own life. You can control your thoughts and learn to improve your self-esteem.. When you learn to cope with anxiety and panic disorders, they become much less worrying.

Worrying about having a panic attack can create a vicious cycle of creating that same anxiety.. When you are able to cope by instituting a variety of techniques such as relaxation and positive self-talk, the actual panic attack event has much less impact on your life. ...
Panic Disorder - About 6 million American adults ages 18 and older have panic disorder in a given year. The median age of onset is 24 years old. About one in three people with panic disorder develop agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a condition in which the individual becomes afraid of being in any place or situation where escape might be difficult or help unavailable in the event of a panic attack. Panic attacks are intense anxiety states of panic, fear, or dread that can come upon a person instantly, with or without a trigger from surroundings. Some panic attacks are accompanied with phobias. Panic attacks are accompanied by such symptoms as shortness of breath, racing heartbeat, and a fear of dying or going crazy. No one really knows the terror of panic unless they have the disorder.

In some, but not all cases of agoraphobia, panic disorder is the primary cause. You can blame this, in large part, on a little part of your brain called the amygdala.. The amygdala stores memories of events based on the intensity of the emotional reaction to a given event. If a particular place becomes associated with the intense physical and emotional responses associated with fear, the amygdala will regularly trigger fear and even panic attacks when you are in that particular place again. This causes you to believe that the two are linked. You may start to notice the association and avoid that place, hoping it will decrease your future panic attacks.. Unfortunately, if you have a panic disorder, it means that you are just as likely to experience an attack in one place as in another. So while you may start to avoid one place because it seems to trigger panic attacks, youll eventually have one somewhere else and feel like you have to avoid that too.. Over time, more and more places become ...
I am currently 22 years old and have been suffering with panic disorder/agoraphobia for just over 2 full years now. My biggest fear has pretty much been of being bipolar. I saw my GP about a year ago and he mentioned something about me showing bipolar tendencies (I was having a panic attack at the time, and my partner said I misunderstood). Anyhow, naturally I saw my psychiatrist following that visit and asked him about the possibility of me being bipolar, he asked a few questions and decided I wasnt showing any symptoms whatsoever and told me not to worry about it. I had a nurse tell me the same thing. I realize that people with panic disorder have an awful, awful habit of obsessing about physical or mental illnesses, yet I still cant seem to trust that there is nothing else wrong with me aside from my much debilitating panic disorder. I seem to worry about it most when I cannot sleep. I have been experiencing some extremely restless nights filled with anxiety, hyper arousal/ hyper vigilance, ...
People tend to fear the unknown, which is why learning everything you can about panic disorder can reduce or even eliminate your fear of attacks, as well as lowering your overall tendency toward anxiety states.. Many people find that their anxieties are significantly reduced by learning all about panic disorder, what causes it, how many people suffer from it, and how to treat it. In particular, learning that attacks are not physically harmful and will not cause a person to go crazy, die, faint, or lose control can be helpful in changing faulty beliefs. Knowledge is power, and developing knowledge about panic disorder will increase your power over it.. Identify Your Panic Attack Triggers. Learning about yourself - specifically, what tends to exacerbate your attacks - can also be beneficial. Keep a journal of your attacks and note things such as whether or not you were drinking coffee, thinking negatively, sleep-deprived, or responding to a stressful event. Did you drink alcohol the night before? ...
Panic disorder (PD) is defined by recurrent, unexpected panic attacks (PA), wherein at least one PA must be followed by at least one month of persistent concern about having more attacks, worry about the consequences of the attacks, or maladaptive behavior related to the attacks [1]. PD is common in the general population with a lifetime prevalence of 1.6% to 2.2% [2] and is associated with high rate of relapse, psychiatric/medical comorbidity, significant impairment of quality of life and relevant social costs [3].. Pharmacological treatment of panic disorder emerged in 1959, when Donald F. Klein established the beneficial effects of the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine [4]. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have been used in the treatment of patients with panic disorder since the 1980s, followed by the dual reuptake inhibitor venlafaxine in the subsequent decade [4]. Several medications have been used effectively in the treatment of PD, including SSRI, ...
Anxiety versus Panic. The terms anxiety attack and panic attack are often used interchangeably to mean the same thing. In this sense, the difference is purely a matter of semantics. But from a clinical perspective, panic and anxiety are defined by different features.. The differences between panic and anxiety are best described in terms of the intensity of the symptoms and length of time the predominant symptoms occur.. Panic Attack. During a panic attack, the symptoms are sudden and extremely intense. These symptoms usually occur out of the blue, peak within 10 minutes and then subside. However, some attacks may last longer or may occur in succession, making it difficult to determine when one attack ends and another begins.. Anxiety. Anxiety, on the other hand, generally intensifies over a period of time and is highly correlated to excessive worry. The symptoms of anxiety are very similar to the symptoms of panic attacks and may include:. Another important distinction is that, unlike a panic ...

Panic disorder is characterized by sudden, unexpected attacks of intense fear and anticipatory anxiety. Panic attacks include symptoms such as palpitations, dyspnoea, dizziness, trembling, gastrointestinal discomfort and fear of dying. Therefore, patients with panic disorder often assume physical illnesses may underly their symptoms. They frequently consult psychiatrists and psychologists, but also general practitioners, cardiologists, neurologists and other medical specialists.
Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something bad is going to happen. The maximum degree of symptoms occurs within minutes. Typically they last for about 30 minutes but the duration can vary from seconds to hours. There may be a fear of losing control or chest pain. Panic attacks themselves are not dangerous physically. Panic attacks can occur due to number of disorders including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, drug use disorder, depression, and medical problems. They can either be triggered or occur unexpectedly. Risk factors include smoking and psychological stress. Diagnosis should involve ruling out other conditions that can produce similar symptoms including hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, heart disease, lung disease, and drug use. Treatment of panic attacks should be directed at the underlying cause. In those with frequent attacks, ...
The butterflies in the tummy before an interview, the pounding heart and clammy hands before an exam or important presentation - we all know what fear and anxiety feel like. And its perfectly normal to feel this way. These physiological changes are part of our bodys fight or flight response and help us respond to some danger, threat, or challenging situation. However, a panic attack is a different ball game.. During a panic attack, you get deluged by an overwhelming wave of fear that is debilitating and paralyzing in its intensity. Another characteristic of a panic attack is that it can strike unexpectedly, out of the blue. And there may be no obvious reason for an attack - it can even occur while youre asleep. Some people develop a condition called panic disorder where they frequently experience panic attacks. Heres a look at some signs which could indicate that youre having a panic attack. ...
Panic Disorder: A type of anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected panic attacks that last minutes or, rarely, hours.

A huge part of panic involves the fear of doing something crazy in front of other people. You fear youll literally lose your mind right there and show yourself as a total nutjob in front of strangers or in front of people who know and love you and count on you to stay sane.. A panic attack will not cause you to literally lose your mind. It just wont. That doesnt happen. You feel a bit crazy and shattered while youre having one, but you are not going to go running through the streets stark naked jabbering in tongues or something.. People just dont literally go crazy from panic attacks. Its never been documented. If you need mental help, thats fine. Get it. But you wont start out sane one day, then literally go crazy because of a panic attack.. Another fear many panic attack sufferers have is of fainting. Rarely, VERY rarely, does a panic attack sufferer faint, unless there was something else going on (i.e., an illness, dehydration, etc.). And when we say very, we mean it.. But ...

Hello, I am a 28 year old male with severe anxiety and panic disorder. I have anxiety since i was 12 years old but it was not severe until now. In December, my anxiety led me to be cautious about my health and went brisk walking vigorously everyday for a week until it landed me a severe panic attack. I went to A&E twice with severe headache and chest / rib pains due to severe daily panic attacks that would not stop for 2 weeks and lasted hours. Heart rate 150, blood pressure 150/80 and my heart rate dropped to 110 when they reassured me nothing was wrong with my heart and obs were normal at home and my BP was 140/80 because everytime I use that machine it sends me in a panic (heart rate 130 on machine) but I did get a reading of 120/80 in October prior to these panic attacks at home when i felt confident in myself and seemed okay. They gave me a beta blocker which made all the symptoms go away and i took it for 7 days as prescribed. I felt fit and healthy in January until march the anxiety was

Objective: This study aims to evaluate the differential predictive values of age, age of onset and duration of illness on paroxetine and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) outcome in late-life panic disorder with agoraphobia. Method: Patients 60 years and older with a confirmed diagnosis of panic disorder with agoraphobia (n = 49) were randomly assigned to paroxetine (40 mg/day) treatment, individual CBT or a waiting-list control condition. Multiple regression analyses were conducted per treatment arm with post-treatment avoidance behaviour and agoraphobic cognitions as the dependent variables. Results: Higher age at onset and shorter duration of illness were predictors of superior outcomes following CBT, although these variables did not influence the treatment effects of paroxetine. Conclusions: In late-life agoraphobic panic disorder, chronological age has no impact on treatment modality outcome. In older patients with a late disease onset or shorter duration of illness, CBT is to be ...

Because the management of panic disorder often requires the use of average daily doses of alprazolam above 4 mg, the risk of dependence among panic disorder patients may be higher than that among those treated for less severe anxiety. Experience in randomized placebo-controlled discontinuation studies of patients with panic disorder showed a high rate of rebound and withdrawal symptoms in patients treated with alprazolam compared to placebo-treated patients.. Relapse or return of illness was defined as a return of symptoms characteristic of panic disorder (primarily panic attacks) to levels approximately equal to those seen at baseline before active treatment was initiated. Rebound refers to a return of symptoms of panic disorder to a level substantially greater in frequency, or more severe in intensity than seen at baseline. Withdrawal symptoms were identified as those which were generally not characteristic of panic disorder and which occurred for the first time more frequently during ...
Anxiety disorders are the most common group of mental illnesses, with lifetime prevalence estimates ranging between 10-30% (Kessler et al 2007). They are an economic burden on society and the sixth largest cause of disability globally (Baxter et al 2014; Fineberg et al 2013). Suffering from an anxiety disorder is distressing, with affected individuals reporting adverse effects on quality of life comparable to sufferers of major depressive disorder, and in excess of the population norm (Mendlowicz and Stein 2000). Panic disorder with agoraphobia is especially prevalent and one of the most handicapping anxiety disorders.. Although the efficacy of psychological treatment for panic disorder with agoraphobia has been the subject of a great deal of research (Sanchez-Meca, Rosa-Alcazar, Marin-Martinez & Gomez-Conesa, 2010), studies comparing cognitive-behavioral therapy and exposure in vivo have regularly been underpowered to detect small to moderate differences.. Therefore, the primary purpose of the ...

Most people who have had a hiatal hernia for an extended period of time experience panic attacks.. These panic attacks have many factors besides characteristic personality traits.

Anxiety disorders represent the most prevalent psychiatric disorders. In addition, a considerable burden is associated with them, not only for individual sufferers, but also for the health care system. However, many patients who might benefit from treatment are not diagnosed or treated. This may partly be due to lack of awareness of the anxiety disorders by primary care practitioners and by the sufferers themselves. In addition, the stigma still associated with psychiatric disorders and lack of confidence in psychiatric treatments are factors leading to no/under recognition and treatment, or the use of unnecessary or inappropriate treatments. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of recommendations for the pharmacological treatment of two common anxiety disorders, in particular obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and panic disorder (PD). The first-line treatments of OCD include medium-high doses of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and clomipramine, a tricyclic (TCA) ...

Background: Galanin (GAL) is a neuropeptide, which is expressed primarily in limbic nuclei in the brain and mediates miscellaneous physiological processes and behaviors. in animal studies, both the application of GAL and antagonism of its receptors have been shown to affect anxiety-like and depression-related behavior. In humans, intravenous administration of the neuropeptide galanin has been reported to have fast antidepressant efficacy. Furthermore, GAL is involved in hypothalamic-hypophysiotropic signalling and cosecreted with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH), possibly acting as a mediator of estrogen action. Methods: In this study six single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the gene coding for GAL were analyzed for possible associations with diagnosis and severity of symptoms in 121 male and female patients suffering from panic disorder (PD). Results: Our results suggest an association between genetic variations in the GAL-gene and severity of PD-symptoms in female ...

Certain adverse clinical events, some life-threatening, are a direct consequence of physical dependence to alprazolam. These include a spectrum of withdrawal symptoms; the most important is seizure (see DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE). Even after relatively short-term use at doses of less than or equal to 4 mg/day, there is some risk of dependence.

Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor of the adrenal gland. It often presents with the classic triad of headache, palpitations and generalized sweating. Although not described as a typical symptom of pheochromocytoma, anxiety is the fourth most common symptom reported by patients suffering of pheochromocytoma. We report the case of a 64 year old man who had severe anxiety and panic disorder as presenting symptoms of pheochromocytoma. After 13 years of psychiatric follow-up, the patient was diagnosed with malignant pheochromocytoma. After surgical resection of his pheochromocytoma and his hepatic metastases, the major panic attacks completely disappeared, the anxiety symptoms improved significantly and the psychiatric medications were stopped except for a very low maintenance dose of venlafaxine. We found in our cohort of 160 patients with pheochromocytoma 2 others cases of apparently benign tumors with severe anxiety that resolved after pheochromocytoma resection. These cases highlight that ...

Agoraphobia is the fear of being in public places with no easy escape. People suffering from this phobia might become anxious when in a room full of people or in an elevator where it would be hard to escape without embarrassment. In extreme cases, patients can become too frightened to leave their home, making it necessary to receive an agoraphobia evaluation and treatment. Agoraphobia can sometimes become debilitating because it is accompanied by panic attacks. After phobia therapy with a therapist experienced in agoraphobia, patients might find that their fear is reduced.. ...

Researchers are developing a new therapy for panic attacks by turning the current treatment for one of the most uncomfortable symptoms - hyperventilation - on its head.. Instead of urging sufferers to take long, deep breaths when they feel they cant breathe, as many were taught for years, researchers from Southern Methodist University say a more effective strategy is to take slower, shallow breaths.. In the throes of a panic attack, sufferers experience symptoms like heart racing, profuse sweating and feelings of suffocation. They may think they are having a heart attack or believe they will faint or die. Its unclear if hyperventilation is a cause or a consequence of panic attacks.. Some 10% to 15% of the U.S. population experience occasional panic attacks, usually during a stressful situation, but about 2% develop panic disorder, in which people become so anxious about having attacks that they begin avoiding situations for fear for having one, according to anxiety expert David Barlow, a ...
Panic Disorder is characterized by uncued panic attacks triggered by a false alarm. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for Panic Disorder usually begins with psycho-education about the disorder. Psycho-education assists therapy participants and their family members to better understand the disorder. This increased understanding serves an important therapeutic purpose. You may recall that two specific cognitive distortions result in an inaccurate appraisal of risk. This inaccurate appraisal of risk subsequently leads to an increase in anxiety symptoms. These are: 1) the overestimation of threat and 2) the underestimation of coping abilities. Psycho-education allows for a more accurate appraisal of risk and an improvement in coping skills. This combination serves to limit or eliminate panic attacks.. Psycho-education teaches therapy participants that the physical sensations of the fight-or-flight response are harmless. Therefore, persons-in-recovery learn to interpret the physical sensations that occur ...

Social anxiety disorders can take the form of agoraphobia, which is the fear of open places or large crowds, or generalized anxiety disorder where a person is tense and anxious at all times. These types of anxiety disorders are specifically related to people and especially strangers; rarely do they occur when someone is safe in their own home or in a familiar place.. Panic attacks are also classified as a type of anxiety disorder. This feeling of panic can come on at any time or anywhere; some even experience them when in their own bed! They can also be triggered by certain uncomfortable events or circumstances, such as being in a crowded room or when needing to do some public speaking. Panic anxiety disorder can be experienced by children, or can develop in adults for what seems like absolutely no reason at all.. If you think that you are suffering from any of these types of anxiety disorders or have any other concerns regarding your mental or emotional health, its always advised that you ...
