YOu dont mention for how long she has been experiencing these anxiety attacks. Usually, after a proper assessment and diagnosis, with anxiety disorder or one of its varieties, a psychiatrist would prescribe one of a number of antidepressant meds for the longer term benefits, and maybe for a couple of weeks a tranquillizer to help control the symptoms when they occur.
The psychiatrist can then comment on whatever such treatment she has started, and modify it if necessary, as well as to consider offering CBT style counselling ( a talking method of treatment ) to give her more control over such symptoms herself.
