Panic Disorder - Prognosis

Panic disorder rarely improves without treatment. However, a combination of medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy can reduce symptoms in up to 90 percent of patients. Unfortunately, many people with panic disorder are never diagnosed with the condition and may struggle with their symptoms for years. The disorder may become so bad that they can no longer hold a job or hold on to friends.
