Advice & Tips: The impact of this daily (1 mg. capsule three times daily) treatment is quite helpful and I have no issues with side effects. However an added benefit is that it works well w/my blood pressure level, as it , prevents it from elevating and assists my blood pressure from rising to an excessive, life threatening level. As well I also meditate and spend time reading or relaxing as an additional benefit for both the panic disorder, ie; anxiety elevation level and blood pressure elevation.

Dosage: 3 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication after taking it as prescribed for a while (till it builds up in your system) has really helped me control my panic attacks. I have found while taking this medication that I do not have them very often and when I do have them they are not as severe. I do not believe there is a "miracle" cure for Panic Disorders, but I really think that this one has come really close for me. I don't suffer from them like I used to. It used to be every day, I couldn't even walk out of the house without having on, now I can go into the city and be okay. I do still get them once in a while in a VERY small crowded windowless room, but that is VERY seldom.
