I've never heard of alcohol being used to treat any panic disorders, but then I have a limited knowledge of the subject.

Lithium (or more likely a compound of it) is often used to treat psychological disorders e.g. manic-depressive cycles. Could be wrong though.

Many with panic disorder resort to alcohol because it's a quick, temporary fix for their problems, but in the long run, the cons outweigh the pros and the potential for addiction is greatly increased.

As for what can treat panic disorder... any antianxiety agent. Xanax and Klonopin are common ones. Then you have the SSRIs that have some beneficial effect -- Prozac, Zoloft, etc.

Certainly not...
They feel like it was a medicine to overcome panic disorders... but as the day passes there is a possibility of getting addicted to alcohol.

Alcohol's chemistry calms the brain. Similar results are obtained by using drugs like xanax and benzodiapenes/barbiturates. However the duration and intensity of the drugs are different. As far as symptoms go, you can maybe claim that panics are relieved by the drugs but as far as treatment of the causes of panic attacks, I'm not sure one exists.
