I'm 54. Have been taking this for 20 years now. The first prescription was for 25mg twice a day. I slept for the whole day and complained. They changed my dosage to 10mg.

My daughter has been on this medication since she was 4--almost a year. It works well as she gets quick relief of the itching and the anxiety of having an itch that won't go away. However, I've noticed recently that she's started stuttering. As her allergies (environmental and food,) are mostly seasonal, we didn't notice the stuttering during the winter months.
