    Initially started when diagnosed with lung cancer and starting chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Worked well for preventing nausea and vomiting during treatments but now it has been 7 months I've been on it and am trying to stop taking it.

    I was prescibed Adivan for GAD. After suffering for my entire 51 years with GAD the Adivan settled me down with no side effects. I have also started Lamical which in combination has settled down my mood swings. Both are very effective in my case and the mental health MD I am seeing has nailed it in my case.
