My doctor had me on zanax, but was afraid of its addictive properties, and gave me this shit!!! It made my anxiety worse, plus I could not function, blurred vision and felt like a total zombie. I am pretty sure this medication is also prescribed to SCHIPHRENIA Patients, which have a some very horrible side affects that could be irreversible. Will not take this ever again. I do not know why the doc ... Show Full Comment

Seems like more of a placebo if it is being used for anxiety. I really do not feel the "relaxation" it claims to be beneficial for.

Comment:
Makes me VERY groggy and does not help with anxiety, in fact it made me more anxious because it suppressed my breathing. Highly advise against it.
