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

I am currently on 50mg of Sertraline (Zoloft) daily and it has drastically help with my panic attacks. I do still have break through episodes but nothing close to what I was dealing with on a daily (actually a nightly) basis before the medication. I know that there are people out there that can deal with their panic/anxiety without medications and God I wish I was one of them. It is different for everyone and some are "cured" after being on a medication for a certian amount of time and others remain on the medication forever.
Personally, It was a very hard decision for me to start the medication as I have always been a heathy person and have never really been on any medications before. The worst part for me was that I had to admit that something was wrong to the Dr and hardest of all to myself. but I am glad I did. Although I am not fully "cured" of my attacks I am definately living a better quality of life then I was before the medication.

Stay strong, you CAN deal with all of this!
