Panic disorder can be terrifying and debilitating for people who have the disorder. People with panic disorders often develop a preoccupation with, and a consuming fear about, the potential for panic attacks to occur. An estimated 2 to 3 percent of Americans experience a panic disorder in any given year, and it’s twice as common for women to experience the disorder than men.

Panic disorder can have a significant impact on a person’s functionality and lead to missed school or work, and complete avoidance of many situations.
