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
