  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication makes me sleepy very quickly. After 15 to 30 minutes I feel very tired and find it difficult to stay awake. The effect has lessened somewhat recently but is still pronounced. It also leaves me very groggy in the morning. It does seem to be working. I can't say I notice any significant change but others have commented that they see an improvement in my mood.
Cost: < $25 monthly
