Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
Medication isn't the only answer for panic attacks and I think that both lifestyle changes and some work with a cognitive psychologist would be helpful.

For self-help, take a look at our Tips column and watch the relaxation breathing video. It can be very helpful and see what simple exercises you can do.
