Went on this drug for moderate anxiety and chronic trouble sleeping. For those who understand how debilitating anxiety and insomnia are, you will find the calming effects of this drug a welcome relief. Works miracles on relieving anxiety and helping to fall asleep. Only downside is that if I stop taking it even for one night, I sleep very lightly, have lots of dreams, and wake up often. I recomme ... Show Full Comment

I only take .5mg for anxiety when traveling by plane. It has been a God-send. I take one the night before and one when I get to the airport. I can now travel again and do not get anxious when taking this. Tiny bit of light-headedness but I am still aware of everything.

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. But after reading other reviews I think I am going to try more biofeedback/meditation before I use the meds. Often just knowing the crutch is there makes it easier to use mind control.

I took this medicine for 7 years--with increasing dosages. Ended up in the psych hospital to detox off of it. It was helpful for anxiety and sleep, but with what cost?

Comment:
I take this only a couple times a month, when anxiety is really bad. It works well most of the time, but every once in a while, axiety comes back. Also, DO NOT combine with alcohol. I had a glass of wine about 7 hours after taking one, and I felt seriously intoxicated.
