My insurance does cover this and I am so greatful because I have used it off and on for over thirty years. I had a problem with panic attacks and found I could take one tablet and be relaxed within 30 minutes. I was able to take one even if I was driving when I had an attack. No side effects what so ever! Sometimes the old standards are the best.

I've had anxiety for years (PTSD) and I just got prescribed this med a month ago. It is by far the best working antianxiety drug I have ever taken.

She tried a number of others such as Zanax, Valium, Paxil etc. but they made me feel awful-to the point I developed agoraphobia and wou ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Meprobamate helped me tremendously because I had insomnia, anxiety and tension headaches. It cured all of them, and in one pill. I brought it up to my Clinician and he exclaimed, "I totally forgot about that one!" The pharmaceutical companies continuously come up with new "better" drugs but they leave something like Meprobamate in the old world. It works, but use caution when o ... Show Full Comment
