I have been on this medication for 2 years, after I had the worst anxiety attack in my life. Since I have been on it I can drive without having a panic attack in traffic, I now don't have to worry about having to pull over to the side of the road anymore or wish for a police car to be near me. I do wonder what the long term ramifications are for using it for many years.

Comment:
I take it only as needed for anxiety/panic. Reading other's reviews it seems that regular use causes most problems. I use once/week at most and no problems - all benefits for me.
