  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Uncontrollable worrying)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Anxious mood)
  • side effects
    Moderate (Drowsiness, Apathy, Confusion, Loss of balance)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I only take this medication when I feel out of control, rage, intemse anxiety, heavy worry and paranoia. For me, it causes a bit of confusion, loss of balance, drowsiness/sleepiness and some apathy. It definitely takes the edge off of any rage, anxiety, heavy worry and paranoia I experience. The bit of apathy thrown in, I feel, is necessary for me. That is what really calms me down. I go from worrying so much, that the apathy balances me out to a healthy calm.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Fasciculations)

  • side effects
    Mild (Exhaustion, Frustration, Fatigue)

  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This drug often causes fatigue but it does well to help with the neuopathy, anxiety, and PTSD. I have now been on it for so long it has become second nature to take it. I take 30+medications per day, so I am not going to get the all list here. I also suffer from severe degenerative arthritis of the spine along with narrowing and neuopathy of the spine. Just to many things to list.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Frustration, Exhaustion, Fatigue
