Brief Answer:
Require hydration and oral anxiety therapy for a short period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can certainly understand your concern.

As per your clinical history, the possibility of Panic attack is high.

It's important to maintain adequate hydration to prevent low blood pressure.

I advise 3-4 liters of plain water over 24 hours.

Additionally, I usually prescribe oral pills of Propranolol for 2 weeks to combat the side effects like tremor and anxiety related chest pain AND oral pills of Escitalopram 2.5 mg once a day for 6 months to improve depression.

It's important to avoid stressful situations that provoke panic attacks.

Driving has to be prohibited until complete recovery.

Oral pills of Lorazepam(as prescribed by your doctor) can be used in presence of aggravated symptoms and lack of sleep.

Overall, it may take 2 weeks for complete recovery.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you
