In brief: Depends on severity

Prognosis is limited and based mainly on the individual's ability to recognize their underlying inferiority and decreased sense of self worth.
  with insight and long term therapy, the symptoms can be reduced in both number and intensity. It's a challenging process, for both patient and therapist, to be sure.
