    Can’t tell (for insomnia)

    Slight (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have no bad side effects from the drug itself, however since I have been on it for so long, I can not go without it. By not getting my refill in time on a Friday, I had to go without it all weekend and went through living hell until Sunday night when I finally got hold of my doctor. At this time, I do not know if I could stop taking this medication without help from possibly some other drug. If I do not take the afternoon tablet, I experience a tightness in my chest, feel anxious and get upset easily, which in turn just makes the first 2 symptoms worse...
