Dosage: As needed
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.

    Very hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is very srongly dependent on havingany alcohol at all in my system. If I have two drinks at 7 pm I cannot take the Kl at bedtime without experiencing this efffect. Problem is dose dependent. I have reduced dose from 2 mg. at bedtime -- originally prescribed for sleep to 1 mg. in the morning and have had not further problems. this is after about ten years of insufficient sleep due to this effect. 1 mg takenas soon as I get up serves to keep me mostly free of anx symptoms during the day. Originally I had teriblenightmares that were reliefved by Kl butthesehave not reocurred.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
