If Panic Attacks You, Get Help

November 24, 1998

Don't panic. Sure, easy for them to say. But if you have panic attacks, mere words may not help.

During a panic attack, the "fight or flight" reaction is triggered at an inappropriate time--a false alarm, the cause of which isn't clear.

If you have panic attacks, don't be shy about getting help. The attacks are real. Treatment for attacks is covered under many health insurance plans. Check whether your plan can help you, and see your doctor or mental health professional for evaluation and treatment.
