OK, from the sound of it your dad saw a GP ? I don't recognize the meds you mention. Urbanol is primarily an antidepressant. Drugs used to treat depression are also often useful in managing panic disorder, even though Urbanol might not be my first choice among the many that are available. Nexiam I know only as a trade name for the drug Esomeprazole, and is used to treat stomach ulcers and severe indigestion. I don't see what it would have to do with treating panic disorder. And Serped I don't know and don't readily find relevant infor about on the web.
I think as you are all concerned, it should be aranged for your dad to see a good local Psychiatrist, for a full assessment, and then a discussion of treatment options and their benefits and effecits. Generally a well-chosen antidepressant can indeed help, as can some specific forms of talking therapy called CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ).
