It works well for anxiety attacks, but I can't tolerate the side effects. The dry-mouth is the worst, but the inside of my mouth is also having some inflammation causing me to bite my tongue often & the inside of my cheeks and lips, a sore throat, and now cavities which suddenly appeared. I need to get off this stuff now.
