Panic Attack Treatments in Dallas

Emergency Care for Panic & Anxiety Attack Patients

A panic attack is an intense fear response that can trigger without any apparent reason or warning. Although there might not be any real danger that causes a panic or anxiety attack, the symptoms of a panic attack can become dangerous when severe and untreated.

Advance ER in Dallas has the equipment, staff, and experience needed to treat severe panic attacks that could warrant a medical emergency or crisis. We’re always open and offer the same care for the same cost as busy hospital emergency rooms. If you or someone you know is having a panic attack or showing panic disorder symptoms, then please know that we are here and ready to help*. You will see an ER doctor immediately upon arrival!

Call (214) 494-8222 if you’d like more information about how our Dallas ERs can treat a panic attack.

(* Important note: If you believe that you are having a heart attack, not a panic attack, then call 911 right now.)

Panic Attack Symptoms

Panic attack symptoms can occur abruptly, often without any external triggers like loud noises or upsetting visuals. People who have been diagnosed with panic disorder suffer from frequent panic attacks. However, panic attacks can affect anyone.

Panic attack symptoms usually include:

  • Immobilizing fear
  • Rapid pulse
  • Profuse sweating
  • Full-body shakes (not seizures)
  • Labored breathing
  • Chills or hot flashes
  • Nausea
  • Chest pain
  • Sudden headache
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness
  • Detachment from reality

Panic attack symptoms often fade in less than 10 minutes, leaving you exhausted and confused about what happened. Typically, a panic attack is more frustrating than it is dangerous. If you have underlying health conditions, though, a panic attack could become a health concern. For example, if you already suffer from a condition that impairs your breathing or oxygen intake, then the labored breathing caused by a panic attack could be a serious problem.

When to Go to the ER for a Panic Attack

Advance ER in Dallas is here to help anyone who needs urgent medical attention from an ER without the typical wait and disorganization of a larger hospital ER. We can help you if you are having a panic attack in any situation. But does every panic attack require medical attention?

We recommend that you always seek urgent or emergency medical attention for a panic attack because its symptoms are highly similar to other more serious health problems. For example, what might seem like a panic attack could be a heart attack. It is safer to assume that a panic attack could be worse than it seems and come to Advance ER as soon as its symptoms begin.

We highly advise you to seek emergency care for panic attack symptoms, especially if you:

  • Have an underlying health condition that could make symptoms worse.
  • Have a history of heart attacks or heart problems in your family.
  • Have had many panic attacks in the past.
  • Experience panic attack symptoms for longer than 10 minutes.
  • Severely disassociate or de-realize while having a panic attack.
  • Are pregnant.

Emergency Treatments for Panic Attacks

When you arrive at one of our Dallas ERs with panic attack symptoms, we will need to evaluate them to determine the cause. Our doctors and medical staff will want to complete diagnostic tests to ensure that the panic attack is not a symptom of a more dangerous underlying condition like a heart complication. At the same time, we will determine which treatments can be used initially to reduce the severity of the symptoms.

In some situations, certain medications might be used to lower your heart rate if it is unsafely high. In other cases, panic attacks can be treated with stabilization methods like administering an IV and monitoring your vital signs. Some patients start to feel relief just from the presence of our medical team. Knowing that you are in good, caring hands during a panic attack can make a major and immediate difference, so don’t hesitate to come to Advance ER if you’re having an anxiety attack.

If you can, make a quick list of useful information to give our medical team when you arrive:

  • Your symptoms and when they started
  • Pre-existing health conditions or complications
  • Any known panic attack triggers
  • Medications and prescriptions that you take
