Re: Panic Disorder - No longer able to get medication

Hi,
Google norepinephrine antagonist for help in answering your questions. I had two panic attacks in November (visits to the ER) of last year. I was not in any threatening situation and had no logical reason to feel fear or severe anxiety. This had never happened to me before. I have been on fluoxetene and olanzapine to stop the attacks. The main thing to remember is that your brain (pituitary gland) signals the adrenal glands to make norepinophrine that triggers the panic attack and all the symptoms. As long as you can block the norepinophrine, you will not experience a full blown panic attack.
