Panic Disorders Due to Lack of Receptors

Interesting article on the causes of Panic disorders. It basically says that people who are prone to panic disorders lack key neuroreceptors. Those who were treated with Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs like Zoloft, Prozac, etc.) develope an increased number of those receptors, even after such treatment stops. So basically, people can take Prozac for anxiety, and after some period be wholely or partly cured, and not need to keep taking the drugs.
