My husband used to have problems with panic attacks. Panic attacks are not caused by a deficiency of drugs. If your brain is low in certain neurotransmitters it can contribute to panic attacks. There are many natural substances that can be taken to "feed" your brain. One that helped my husband is 5-HTP. It can be bought in a vitamin shop. My son is autistic and my doctor recommended it for him too at a dose of two 100mg pills 4 times a day. If can start with trying it at bedtime or when you start to feel anxious. Also google deep breathing. When you become fearful and anxious if you pay attention, you will see that you are breathing very shallow. Slowing down your breathing you can bring a shift in your consciousness. I know this sounds too simple but it can make a big difference.
