Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder characterised by sudden, intense panic attacks. These attacks come unexpectedly and can often seem to happen for no particular reason.

You might have panic attacks if you:

  • Suddenly feeling really scared
  • Thinking you’re losing control or going crazy
  • Feeling shaky, sweaty, or having trouble breathing
  • Avoiding places or things that might bring on another attack
  • Always worrying about having another one
  • Take a prescribed medication
  • Practise deep breathing or meditation
