It is GREAT for anxiety! NOTE:I wanted to sing "VOLARE" and had a strong urge to catch gypsies for about a week after taking it for the first time.

I have a panic attack and sometimes convulse before taking an IV drip at the Emergency Room. I am on Anxiety meds but the doctor god bless him gave me one dormicum 7.5mg tablet and gave me about 20 minutes then i was "ready"and the needle and injection was administered and I was just grand and i do agree that this drug belongs in a clinic / hospital and not for home use its quite potent even more so than Xanax and klonopin.

I've had this administered intravenously before both of my major surgeries. The first time, though my mom was with me in the pre-anesthesia area, I was terrified as I'd never received any sort of anesthesia before. It made me giddy, floaty, and very giggly. I remember my mom and I laughing a lot before I was taken into pre-op. She later told me the things I was saying, and we laughed again. For my second surgery, no one's allowed in the pre-anesthesia area for neurosurgery that isn't a surgeon, neurologist, anesthesiologist, nurse anesthestician or anesthestician assistant. I was terrified knowing that my brain was set to be forever altered, and I wasn't crying very long when the nurse aesthetician came to my bed and put a higher dose of Versed than I'd had previously. I remember feeling profoundly calm and relaxed, and nothing else after that. I can't imagine this outside of a hospital setting, nor would I want to. I know it's used in the ER to brings epileptics out of status, and when I've had it for that, it calms me down and stops the seizure immediately. For pre-surgical terror, it's an absolute Godsend.

Well, they make it sound like it's this super powerful drug. That has not been my experience with it. It's very mild and has a slight calming effect at 20MG. I think the IV would be potent but the syrup should be considered for home use for persons with uncontrolled anxiety.
