  • I too have panic attacks... I have major problems because of hormonal imbalances that cause them... maybe speak to her doctor about putting her on zoloft.. its a very gentle drug and I have been on it for a little over a year and only had 1 panic attack since then.

  • Like the other said, there might be some good medications out there for her. But definitely have her speak with a good psychologist first, before making any life altering decisions.
