Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is known as a first line treatment for panic attacks, proving to be effective for about 77% of patients. CBT therapists encourage patients suffering from panic attacks to confront their feared situations and sensations under safe conditions.
In addition, clinicians assist patients in methods to overcome their fears of panic attacks by refocusing thoughts and using guided imagery. Lifestyle changes, like dieting, breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation and exercise, can also play a role in managing symptoms.
