The reason for why one starts having panic attacks is often unknown, and fortunately one need not find a reason to be able to have successful treatment, both with medications and psychological help such as CBT. I'm not sure I would pick Venlor as the best available treatment for panic attacks, and there are many alternatives. I hope you have been assessed by a psychiatrist, who has recommended treatment alternatives, rather than only by a GP
