Advice & Tips: This can be a "life saver" of needed for major anxiety. I have never had problems with "addiction or tolerance buildup", but know people who have. If you have addiction problems, try something milder. In the beginning I took this as prescribed and now that I know how it works in my body and I am in a better place mentally, I take it as needed. Currently take 1/2 of .05 tablet at night.
