Dear lybrate-user. Panic disorder is neurotic and purely based on anxiety. Panic disorder and bipolar disorder are not the same and panic disorder never leads to bipolar disorder. Panic disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist
