Comment:
I have been on 3mg per day for 4 months, and at first my PTSD was helped. But in the past month, I've had HORRIBLE weird feelings, shortness of breath, out-of-body sensations. I will never take this drug again! It did give me decreased hunger, but that just made me even more weak and the side-effects were more potent.

Presbribed after vehicle accident caused severe whiplash with many odd symptons. Very difficult to sleep. Took 4 MG at night together with Ambien CR and Lyrica. Helped me sleep much better.

Excellent I take at day break and at night. I take 750 mg in the am and 750 mg at night. It controls my explosive nature, and allows me to concentrate. Its not perfect but with out GABA "over the counter", at times I'm a basket case. Cheers

Comment:
My Psychiatrist has me on a very low dose for bipolar symptoms and it has effectively controlled my mood. But I felt like I was on "Speed" at first and had to take it in the morning rather than at night as prescribed. I find it helps me control my weight also. I only take 3 mg per day.
