The first thing you should do when you think you've had a panic attack is get a good thorough doctor check everything physiological that can cause this -- thyroid, blood sugar, etc.  If your doc didn't do this, ask why.  If your doc just gave you a drug, ask why he or she did this before ruling out something physiological and before sending you to therapy to see if you can work this out without resorting to medication given this is new for you and getting on it quickly might make it go away forever.  If you keep on in this way of thinking it can become chronic.  You're not dying -- panic attacks don't kill.
