Prozac is a very popular medication used to treat panic disorder and OCD. It has also been shown to help with anxiety and major depressive disorder. In this article, we’ll talk about how to obtain Prozac prescription assistance, what it treats, and how to manage panic disorder.
What is Panic Disorder?
This condition is diagnosed in people who have a history of panic attacks (seemingly out-of-the-blue) and have a very real fear of having another panic attack. Approximately 2-3% of Americans will experience panic disorder in a given year. Panic disorder can diminish your quality of life, can make you miss work, avoid situations, people, and places, and make you avoid everything worthwhile.
Managing Panic Disorder
If you’ve ever experienced sudden symptoms of severe anxiety, such as sweating, hyper-ventilating or heavy breathing, intense feelings of dread, and an alarming amount of fear for no reason, you’ve probably experienced a panic attack. The first two things you should remember are that: 1. It’s a panic attack and not a life-threatening ailment, and that 2. You must challenge your thoughts and not fall into a vicious cycle. Challenge your catastraophizing and anxious thoughts, and realize that even the worst case scenario is probably not going to happen. You can handle this, and it will not last forever. Don’t fall into your own thinking trap. You have more power than you realize over this.
Here are a few quotes to help you through your anxiety:
- “You’re not going to die. Here’s the white-hot truth: if you go bankrupt, you’ll still be okay. If you lose the gig, the lover, the house, you’ll still be okay. If you sing off-key, get beat by the competition, have your heart shattered, get fired… it’s not going to kill you. Ask anyone who’s been through it.” – Danielle LaPorte
