    They have meds from the anti seizure areas they use in anxiety. You can discuss this with your doctor. Valid question.

    I don't do any meds, but I always an reading books on how to deal with it and the best thing I have learned is the more i avoid the thing that triggers my panic and anxiety the more I'm telling my subconscious and my disorder that I should be afraid and that it's correct for me to freak out. So I slowly started doing things that I couldn't and before I do i use only positive talk to myself, like I'm going to enjoy this, what ever happens I'll deal with it, I'm safe. I never ever say I'm not going to panic the mind doesn't really know how to deal with that for what ever reason it's like telling your self to panic. And I talk to my self like I'm taking to my best friend if I was next to them and they were going through it. I just keep reassuring all is well and when I'm done I tell myself see your OK to keep reinforcing that I'm OK
