How can panic attacks be treated?

Hi, I was in the hospital in a coma for 9days but altogether I was there for a month. Ever since I got home from being in rehab after the hospital, I keep having panic attacks like any minute I am going to quit breathing. The reason I was in the hospital was because I had a COPD attack and they had life support on me. I have been to doctors and all of them keep prescribing me anti-depressants and nothing is working. I was having trouble swallowing so today I was in the hospital as outpatient to get my throat stretched but that has not helped either. I am having a panic attack right now as I am typing this. Can you please help me?

Hi, just the other day I had a serious panic attack. I went into the emergency and they said it was nothing. Before the panic attack ocurred I had drank a Nos energy drink. I am wondering if that was part of the cause because when it happened I was browsing the internet doing absolutely nothing and it came out of nowhere. So I thought maybe alittle jog outside would help, I jogged for literally 15 seconds before I started breathing very heavily, I a an athletic person this doesnt usually happen to me, but what I am really concerned about right now if that just a moment ago I was doing wonderful ready to sleep nothing affecting me, but as I was laying there I started to shake randomly and my heart started beating really fast on its own, and i m scared to lay down now.

Hi, I m a drummer and had shortness of breath, sweating and tachycardia while I was playing. I was brought to the ER and after ruling out a heart attack I was told I had a panic attack. Since that Time I ve had a lot of anxiety. Shortness of breath, rapid heart beat, muscle tension, etc. Tonight I was at a rehaersal and while playing my heart started to palpitate, I had some pain in my left front shoulder area and my palms were sweating. It passed in about a minute or two, but I was very concerned. I ve had a lot of changes in my personal life very recently. I went through a divorce, sold my house, I m out of work and I don t have any health insurance. Could what I m experiencing be all anxiety related?
