Any light?

I see my psychologist every other week, and currently we are discussing placing me back on medication. I recently had a couple of panic attacks which were each completely different from each other. I have two questions, are there people who truely get better after taking medication and going to therapy, and are there people who need medication for life? Each time I stop using medication I regret it, but I also don't want the constantly have the crutch. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?

I have heard of both happening. Some people can resolve their problems with just therapy. Some people can resolve them with therapy, but also need medication for the rest of their lives. I've also heard of quite a few people who only were only able to learn new behaviors through therapy once they had medication to help them, but were eventually able to stop taking medication once they knew new ways of thinking and managing their symptoms.

A lot depends on the nature of the problem, the skill of the therapist, and the goals and behaviors of the patient.
