    This didn't help much as far as my anxiety went. When I took my dose in the morning it would make me drowsy , so then the night dose would atleast help me go to sleep. Cannot even be compared to any of the benzos I have tried.

    I have bad panic attacks when leaving home or being anywhere over an hour from home. I'm taking 7.5 twice daily and after two and a half weeks I feel that the fog may finally be lifting. Not any xanax for the last two weeks. I'm hoping it stays. I have not felt like myself for almost two years.

    I have taken for almost 1 year and lately I have stomach discomfort abt 1 hr after taking 10mg. I take 10mg morning, 10mg noon and 5mg evening. The evening dose does not affect me, but I need the 20mg during the day for my anxiety.
