prozac is a big help if it works, sometimes it doesnt, how long has she been on prozac and what dose ?
dont search for causes of her panic disorder, its likely inherited and she shouldnt feel guilty about it, it wont hurt her
CBT is the way most get better along with meds
get her to breathe deep and slow when feeling panicky and to avoid rapid shallow panting, this helps calm people
