  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: When going off this med, follow your doctor's recommendations regarding tapering off. Don't just quit! Even with tapering off from a low dose, the increased anxiety I felt in the first week of decreasing my dosage was, uh, challenging. In fact, I didn't think I'd be able to get off the med entirely. It took 4 weeks of gradual decreases to get off.

Advice & Tips: Its quite easy for me to take b/c I have a 7-day medcase that I refill every Sunday (for the following week) I actually found a med case that held ALL my prescriptions & multi-supplements & every day is a different color. It still has the least bad side effects but I wish I could go back to x4 daily, but dr's are too paranoid about taking a benzodiazepine & a stimulant (Ritalin) d/t possible heart problems. I have been fine. Without this Rx, I would be living a panic attack 24/7/365
