Cogentin is used for:
Treating Parkinson disease in combination with other medicines. It is also used to control tremors and stiffness of the muscles due to certain antipsychotic medicines (eg, phenothiazines).
Good medications for panic attacks and anxiety are benzodiazepines, I suffer from both anxiety and panic attacks and take benzos, you must discuss this with your Dr.
You must be careful as they are very addicting , but they do work.
Brand name Generics
I did not find anywhere about this being specifically used for helping with panic attacks, what it is used for is drug-induced extrapyramidal disorders, Acute dystonic reaction and parkinsonism please read the link below please take good care, best wishes,
