Stay away from this medication and all other benzodiazapenes. While you are on it, it works great at first. What they don't tell you is that this drug causes major withdrawal for a large number of patients when you decide to go off of it. You have to taper off it like you are on heroine. It took me about 2 years of excruciating withdrawal effects to get off the dosage I was on. It even says on ... Show Full Comment

However, I have to take Risperdal too, and when mixed together w/ Risperidone it makes me have bed wetting problems. And also, the Risperidone makes this drug a little bit less effective. When I was taking it with Paxil only, I felt like a new man! It calmed me down sooooo much, wow! I do like ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
VERY helpful med for me. Helps my panic, and calms me down significantly. Helps me to sleep at night too. My only concern is that most doctors are completely paranoid about prescribing it, and if something happens and I have to find a new doctor (I move, she goes to another practice, etc.)I' afraid I'll have to go through benzo withdrawls...scary from what I've read...they can actua ...
