  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Other)
  • Side effects
    Severe
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is very srongly dependent on havingany alcohol at all in my system. If I have two drinks at 7 pm I cannot take the Kl at bedtime without experiencing this efffect. Problem is dose dependent. I have reduced dose from 2 mg. at bedtime -- originally prescribed for sleep to 1 mg. in the morning and have had not further problems. this is after about ten years of insufficient sleep due to this effect. 1 mg takenas soon as I get up serves to keep me mostly free of anx symptoms during the day. Originally I had teriblenightmares that were reliefved by Kl butthesehave not reocurred.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

Advice & Tips: The perfect medication I have tried so far for Insomnia and Panic Attacks with little or no sode affects and I havebeen on it for a while now. I never became addicted to it like so many doctors fear. I recommend this drug highly as I have tried Xanax which made me feel like a Zombie and Valium which did the same to me as Xanax. If you want to calm down yet still function well use Clonazepam.
