He recommended the use of alprazolam for the treatment between generalized anxiety disorders and panic disorders alone. At that time panic disorder was thought be a rare illness which was only known to be treated with tricyclic antidepressants only, benzodiazepines are known to be an unproductive means of treatment. Nonetheless Dr. Sheehan has known that patients with panic disorder are common among patients in his database, thereby assuming that it is already a prevalent illness. And he also noted that patients respond well to the treatment of benzodiazepines. He then recommended to Upjohn that alprazolam be marketed as for panic disorder so that patients of a wide variety of this illness will now consider this drug as treatment. And they became successful with this decision. Alprazolam profited millions when the Food and Drug Administration approved its release.
