OFF MEDS 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
Dear all,
I have not logged in for a good 5-6 years, have been on meds since then, it was a tough ride, have been tapering off the meds for the last few months. Now for 3 weeks have been totally meds free. Some of the anxiety is back but am coping , no panic attacks ( I hope it stays that way) - I'm wondering if there are any other survivors out there completely off meds , and for how long ?
If yes, how does it feel ? and how are you coping ?

Cheers !

PS : Have been an anxiety and PA sufferer for 22 years.

Good luck! I am not off meds, but wish I could be. Back when I was taking Paxil, I tapered down to zero for a while but then the panic returned. I am now on Lexapro. I hope you are able to stay off. That would be awesome!

Re:OFF MEDS 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
Congratulations on your being meds-free. I have been completely off meds for 4-5 years now. I weaned off ever so slightly and very slowly during a three to four-month period to lessen impact. I seldom experience anxiety, and if so, to a much lesser degree. I expect I always will but it is easily controlled using other methods including diet, relaxation, exercise, etc. I'm confident that I will not be returning to medications as a remedy to anxiety. As a note, therapy and support (including this forum) has been the key to my success. I wish you continued success. Please continue to let us know how you're doing by sharing your experiences and success . . . hugs
