Treatments for agoraphobia usually include medication and psychotherapy. In the majority number of cases of this disorder, people are either cured or learn to keep themselves under control.

Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medicine is usually prescribed to people with agoraphobia or panic symptoms.

-Antidepressant drugs include: fluoxetine (prozac), paroxetine (paxil), and sertraline (zoloft).

-psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are two types of therapies in which agoraphobia is treated with.

Based on these types of therapies and medications, they are proven to be helpful. My sister suffering from agoraphobia has been able to do many things that she was not able to do before. She is obviously still working on things and going to therapy, but so far it has helped her a great deal. Things that she was not able to do before like go into a food or clothing store she is able to do by herself now. Going to school to take her placement test for college was a huge problem because she was not able to physically bring herself inside somewhere that was unknown to her is slowly starting to be fixed.

So in this case it is proven that therapy is a great way to fix disorders especially like this one.
