Description - Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Panic Disorder by American Psychiatric Association

This guideline summarizes data to inform the psychiatrist of the care of patients with panic disorder. It begins at the point where the psychiatrist has diagnosed an adult patient as suffering from this disorder according to the criteria in DSM-IV (1) and has evaluated the patient for the existence of coexisting mental disorders. It also assumes that the psychiatrist or other physician has evaluated the patient for general medical conditions or other factors that may be causing or exacerbating the panic or that may affect its treatment. The guideline also briefly addresses issues specific to the treatment of panic disorder in children and adolescents. The purpose of this guideline is to assist the psychiatrist in caring for a patient with panic disorder. It should be noted that many patients have conditions that cannot be completely described by the DSM-IV diagnostic category. The psychiatrist caring for a patient with panic disorder should consider, but not be limited to, the treatments recommended in this practice guideline. Psychatrists care for patients with panic disorders in many different settings and serve a variety of functions; the recommendations in this guideline are primarily intended for psychiatrists who provide, or coordinate, the overall care of the patient with panic disorder.
