Can alcohol cause panic disorder?

Best answer

Alcohol can trigger the development of panic disorder, as alcohol can trigger panic attacks. Alcohol is a CNS (central nervous system) depressant. So although alcohol may reduce the symptoms of anxiety temporarily after drinking it, the problem occurs when you stop drinking alcohol and you start to experience withdrawal symptoms. When in withdrawal from alcohol, you may experience panic attacks.
