Re: Do the meds docs prescribe take anxiety/ panic attacks away forever?

I am not sure the meds would ever be like a cure for anyone because our bodies tend to build up a tolerance for them and we need more and more.The lonegst I have ever been on medication for anxiety was 2 years (paxil and klonopin) they both did the job though I didnt experiance much anxiety at all for that whole 2 years.I had to deal with feeling sleepy pretty often,but overall I guess it was better then feeling anxiety ridden day in and out.

No I dont believe they are a cure I think it would be tons better to learn to condition our minds to push the anxiety away before it can over run us.
