This is a bit late since the OP, but I'll post for the sake of anyone who reads this.
Medication can help for many cases, especially if you had tried therapy and various therapeutic techniques that would not help to keep the anxiety at bay long enough. If you 'manifest' other issues after completing for one, you might have to ask yourself and your therapist if there can be something underlying as to why that pattern seems to happen. Not to be Freudian, but many of our actions and reactions to certain situations can be drawn from something within the past (trauma, neglect - even if it was emotional, attachment problems that may result in failed relationships, etc.). Nobody can determine that other than you and your therapist and see if any events seem to trigger or start off the new 'manifestation' of the problem to start with.
Often times anxiety and other disorders are genetic by nature but can be set off through life events and stress. Sometimes people who go to therapy would need medication while others can handle with therapy alone. I would not recommend on saying to take medicines for the rest of your life unless it is severe and diagnosed by a psychiatrist. In my true opinion, have that as your last resort and see what things you use. I will warn that it takes trial-and-error and you should ask questions for side effects from the medications.
