Free floating anxiety

I would be interested to know how to beat free floating anxiety where you can go from feeling fine to an acute anxiety state for no apparent reason. This lasts for minutes or up to an hour or so and then wears off, again for no apparent reason. My friend is going through this at the moment. I understand how she feels as I have had this in the past caused by discontinuation of Olanzapine but I do not know what has caused it for my friend.
All I can do is stay with her and talk her through her anxiety state and convince her that the physical symptoms, will pass, she is not sick and it is all caused by anxiety. We have been doing this for over a week. The medication seems to be making things worse or at least is not helping even after 4 weeks.
