    Started on this med. in 1968. I still take this med. I took it @ first for many years 30 md erery day. I was able to finish college. Great life. Strong. I started taking 10 mg every day.

    This med has been used by me for many years to relieve anxiety and occasionally to get a good nights sleep. I use it sparingly far anxiety attacks. My usage is about 50 tablets per year, but it really helps when I have problems. I do not suffer from depression or alcohol abuse. Using.
