Treatment of spontaneous panic attacks with chlomipramine.

Recurrent spontaneous panic attacks are psychophysiological symptoms present in panic disorder and agoraphobia with panic attacks. Effective pharmacological treatment for panic attacks is essential to any treatment plan for these conditions. The authors administered chlomipramine to 20 patients who had panic disorder or agoraphobia with panic attacks, and after 8 weeks of treatment 75% of the patients with each diagnosis were asymptomatic. These results support the claim that chlomipramine is highly effective in preventing recurrence of panic attacks.
