Had a lot of stress and was un able too sleep. After ten days it seemed to work for me.however, gained some weight, had periods of blurred vision and dry mouth.No longer have the cold sweats or anxiousness.I recommend taking it before you go to bed.I would like to add that I quit smoking during this time period.

Began taking 6 yrs ago for eating disorder and anxiety and it helped somewhat. Now taking again with Serequel for major panic disorder. Not working like it did before with the calming effect. It just helps keep the panic attacks to be not so frequent, but does not seem to help with their severity.
