Yes because you are under 18

ur still legally underage.... so yeah

Adrian K
maybe, depending on the side effects because you are under 18. It just depends on the type of medication they prescribe you.

Yes. Yes, they will.

yeah if you are going in for any check up you need a parent signature

I have been having panic attacks since iwas around the age of 13. In USA they let us make our own doctors appointments at the age of 17 and I do not beleive you will need a parents agreement to get them as we dont usually need it here. But it all depends on what the dr thinks. you have to tell him they are interfering with your life. And ask for a referal to a behavioral specialist. As they are the ones who give out meds for panic attacks. Answer all his questions to the tee. And even bring up some concerns you have. I would write down your questions on a piece of paper and bring it to the dr.

If you have any more questions I would be happy to help!

In England, I am Not For Sure BUT, Going to the Dr. IS THE BEST SOLUTION, Reguardless if Premission is required or Not.

THE Answer
No, definitely not.
Edit - ignore the yes answers. They don't know what they're talking about.

I think the age is 16, it depends on what they prescribe (if anything) though I think.

Then there's the whole GP discretion, if they think you're mature and responsible enough then they prescribe you what you need.

No, you don't need your parents permission to visit the doctor or for him to prescribe medication.

In fact you don't even need parent's consent to have an operation so long as the doctor is satisfied that you understand what is happening and why.

have a look here

no u do not need your parents permission - u can go to the doctors and talk in confidence and get prescriptions for this type of thing at 16 without parental consent

You are over the age of 16 so it's no problem at all. You won't necessarily be prescribed anything either, anxiety disorders are usually best resolved with CBT but you may be given medication in the meantime to act as a stop gap as there are long waiting lists.
