  • take it in the 8pm area each night - because it will make you drowsy

  • Taken for anxiety but I found the 50mg to be heavily sedating. I was down for the count after taking one. They take awhile to take effect so use for chronic and short panic attacks doesn't work great. I found that by the time I felt the sedation my attack was long gone. Would recommend for sleeping problems but not fast acting enough for anxiety.

    Anxiety
  • Can cause some drowsiness for up to 10-12 hours after dose. Effects increase when more is taken. Resistance to side effects occurs upon regular use, but resurfaces when discontinued even for a couple days before taking again.

    Anxiety
  • This has been the only drug that successfully helps me to get to sleep - the only downside is that it gives you a huge 'hangover' the following day and you feel tired all day, especially if its taken late into the evening.

  • Make sure that you are careful about taking if full concentration is needed. It made me drowsy and a little loopy.
