We cannot prescribe a medicine over the internet.

I can give you the name of medicines that may help, but they are not usually available over the counter. Also, a doctor that can examine you can make a better assessment if what would be better for your specific scenario; I can only say what is commonly considered in these types of situations.

The primary medicines that would be used first in this situation would be an SSRI antidepressant, such as Zoloft (sertraline) or Celexa (citalopram). However, these medicines will typically take weeks to build up in your system and become effective. Therefore, if having an acute panic attack, it also may be appropriate to use an anti-anxiety medicine, such as Xanax (alprazolam) or Ativan (lorazepam) for a short period of time. The primary problem with these medicines is that they can worsen depression, particularly if used for a longer period of time. Consequently, if these medicines are used, they should only be used for the shortest possible period of time, usually only a couple of weeks, and by then the SSRI will have been building up in the system.

If you have any further questions that can be answered over the internet, please let me know.
