I was prescribed 10mg 4 times per day due to an allergic reaction to Sulfa Meds. After 4 straight days of constant itching, this was a godsend!!! In just one night I feel so much better. I also suffer from anxiety and have been prescribed vallium in the past to treat it. This drug works on my anxiety really well too, without falling into the benzo family. I wish I had known about this before!

Comment:
After 3 yrs I had a very bad reaction to the Fentenyl patch. Tongue/throat swollen and hives inside, severe itching on head, hands and feet and a deep red rash. So, the VA emergency room Dr. gave me this pill to help with all my problems until I could either go to my Dr. at the clinic or get an appointment at the VA's Pain Clinic.
