  • Effectiveness
    Major (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence

    Not at all hard to take

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.

    None (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects

  • Adherence

  • Burden

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
