Panic disorder is often accompanied by other serious problems, such as depression, drug abuse, or alcoholism. These conditions need to be treated separately. Symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness or hopelessness, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, low energy, and difficulty concentrating.
Most people with depression can be effectively treated with antidepressant medications, certain types of psychotherapy, or a combination of the two.
