Does it ever go away?

Hello,

I was hit by panic attacks about a year and a half ago. I was put on Effexor 75 mg and for a while, I did very well. So I quit the medicine thinking the panic attacks would never come back. I was wrong, a few months after quitting the Effexor, they came back with a revenge, I lost quite a bit of weight, was put back on Effexor 75mg and Taffil for three months. The Dr took me out of Taffil a month ago and two weeks later took me off Effexor. After a month of not taking drugs, I am back having severe panic attacks, feeling anxious, depress. I have been back on Effexor for two days now and I am dealing with the side effects. So my questions are how can I quit effectively these drugs? And do the panic attacks ever go away or it is something that stays with you for the rest of your life? Thank you for your help and your support.

Hi. Welcome. Panic attacks can be managed by a Psychologist specializing in CBT. Yoga and meditation help. Mindfulness.
  Learn the CBT and breathing techniques. You'll see a big difference.
Depending, you may still require medication.
  I do a lot of work with my Pdoc and Therapist. I suffer bipolar ADHD and panic attacks. For me I was fine, up until menopause.
   I did go for a time without medication. Later I suffered a psychotic break which required time in the hospital. So now I just take the treatment plan.
  You can control mental issues to an extent. I've also heard of people going into remission.
I'd also like to recommend a support group. It's thru NAMI. Look online for meetings in your area. Maxy
