No homeopath is qualified to make such a statement, nor to make ANY psychiatric diagnosis. Ansd there is NO good evidence that ANY homeopathic remedy helps ANY psychiatric condition except purely acting as a placebo. What your daughter needs first of all is a completent expert diagnosis, before deciding on treatment --- she should see a good local psychiatrist for a proper assessment, and a discussion of treatment options, which may well include using specific drugs otherwise also used to treat depression, and psychotherapy of the CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) format, to help her gain control of the panic symptoms
