  • Adherence

Dosage: 6 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Fasciculatons had gotten so bad that they would keep me awake. I had argued with my health care workers for months about anxiety meds. I wanted Xanax or Ativan and they wanted me on Paxil. I kept buying Xanax on the street, finally they agreed to give me Valium (Diazepam). My Fasciculations got much better. I still have them but it's much much better now.
