As for actual Panic Attacks, I don't have any immediate suggestions beyond Motherwort tincture being an excellent "acute AHHH!" medicine. I make it each summer and it's perfect for those times of OMG STRESS, by just taking the edge off. Not in a sedating effect, but definitely the same sort of thing as "breathe, count to ten".
Here's something Susun wrote about Instant calm also, for reference:
I've had a few panic-attacks after a recent divorce and I can definitely agree that "breathe, relax" just isn't always helpful/possible in the midst of the panic, but a dropper of Motherwort tincture was jsut enough to push through that "wall" and get to a place I could listen to the rest of the advice and breathe again.
Overall, Oatstraw/Nettle infusion keeps poppign into my mind as well, for a more general "calm&nourish the body" effect over time, less as a "in-the-moment medicine", too.

I happen to really like skullcap tincture. It's awesome for when it feels like you can't breathe. RosemaryGoddess was a member here. Does anyone remember the name of her website? She has some truly wonderful products.
