Panic disorder is a serious health problem in the United States. It is estimated that 1.7 percent of the adult American population has panic disorder. It typically strikes in young adulthood; roughly half of all people who have panic disorder develop the condition before age 24, though some sources say that the majority of young people affected for the first time are between the ages of 25 to 30. Women are twice as likely as men to develop panic disorder. [1]
