I have an anxiety disorder which in turn gives me panic attacks. With nocturnal panic attacks, the situation can be more scary, because they happen at a time when it is least convenient to assist (as the night is when most people do their required sleeping :P ). With such a large array of medication that may be prescribed, it can be a scary condition to live with. What I did was seek the help from several different professionals and gathered multiple different opinions of medications, and though a process of elimination chose what to me seemed to be the best option.

For me, Panic Attacks where self induced.  How old is she?  There are some medications available, but she may want to do it naturally!  Different herbal teas for instance!  This society has become a medicated one at best, have her talk to someone and see what is at the root of the issue.

     :sad1: Hi greenmellojello here:
                 I also suffer from anxiety and i have panic attacks...Those are pretty scary and i hate it  :angry7: ...I just wish   sometimes that I would never have an attack again...I also have nocturnal attacks as well, just when your'e trying to go to sleep..you notice ur heart racing and then you start focusing on that and then you can't breathe,it's the scariest feeling and the scariest experience...Im sick of having these attacks  :'(...Their were even times I had to wake up my 14 year old  daughter out of her sleep cause i got really scared, and i needed someone up with me for a little bit till i felt better...I wish and hope for a cure some day, I sure don't want it controlling my life... :-[... :peace: :peace: :peace:

My daughter suffers from panic attacks.  The meds she was prescribed only made things worse, so she controls them now with exercise and relaxation techniques.  She does quite a bit of yoga, it really makes a difference.  My mom also has them, I do believe it's hereditary, although it skipped me.

Well, AGAIN for me, it was ALL self induced!  You said it best, when she says that she  "worries about EVERTHING."  That is it!   I started thinking to myself, "whatever happens, HAPPENS!?"  She has to let things go. 

Today, ALL that worrying did NOTHING!  I lost MANY YEARS from worrying, and it was all for nothing!

I have panic attacks, anxiety attacks and suffer from depression.  I was taking medicine for these and that helped somewhat.  I cannot afford the meds right now, so I don't go anywhere outside of home unless someone is with me.  I worry about something all the time.  Can't figure out how to keep my brain from doing this.  I try and stay busy, but sometimes that doesn't help either.  I will say a prayer for you and your daughter.
