Is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing an effective treatment modality for panic disorder?

Description

Evidence-Based Answer:
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) may improve some measures of symptoms associated with panic disorder, but has inconsistent effects on frequency of panic attacks (SOR: C, based on 2 small RCTs). EMDR may produce long-term results similar to those of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and has slightly faster improvement in symptoms (SOR: C, single small RCT).
