Like other anxiety disorders, panic disorder can be treated.

Most people find significant improvement with professional care. Treatment success varies among people. Some may respond to treatment after a few months, while other people may need more than a year. Treatment can be complicated if a person has more than one anxiety disorder or suffers from depression or substance abuse, which is why it must be tailored to the individual.

Although treatment is individualized, several standard approaches have proved effective. Therapists will use therapy, medication, or a combination of the two.
