  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Insomnia)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It was a miracle drug for panic attacks, but withdrawal sets in after a time and the dose has to increase to continue to be effective. The risk was too high for permanent addiction so my doctor switched me to Alprazolam, which should be easier to get off of at some point in the future.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Insomnia)
  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for Anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Increased dosage per MD I found out it has nothing to do with the crying spells. I changed from Gabapentin to Wellbutrin and the crying is nearly gone, also pain is better, sometimes gone.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

Sep 12, 2009 (Started Apr 15, 2008)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Insomnia)
  • Effectiveness
    None (for Anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was switched from lorazepam to klonopin. I want to get off of it because I think it makes me worse. I took lorazepam for eight years, and xanax for three before that. It is extremely hard to get off the drugs without making things worse, but I am concerned that it makes me cry all the time. It helped with insomnia at first, but not any more. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't be on any of these.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: Withdrawal from this drug is 100% worse than the original symptoms. I had to go back on it, then finally my doctor switched to alprazolam and maybe it will be easier to get off of in the future.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Other)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Be careful not to build up a tolerance -- it really is something, in my opinion, to be used "as needed" rather than a daily supplement for SSRIs or used recreationally. I have had friends who developed a dependency, and it's hard to watch.
Cost: < $25 monthly
