    Meprobamate helped me tremendously because I had insomnia, anxiety and tension headaches. It cured all of them, and in one pill.

    I have been on this medication for 45 years and now I am having a hard time getting it. What is the sudden supply problem? Also it is not covered by any drug plans any longer. Why is that? Is this medication so dangerous that it is being withdrawn from the public? If it is so dangerous, why have I been able to take it, without side effects, for so many years?

    I have been on this medication for years. It is the only one that works for my anxiety.The only drawback is that the Mfg. "Wallace" is the only one that really is effective and I have a very difficult time getting it. The last refill was from a different Mfg. and it does not work.
