    I am taking 10 mg. tablet every evening to relieve colon problems. I would waken in the early morning with severe pain in my lower abdomen and could not go to the bath room. The meds have relaxed the colon and I no longer have a problem.

    I have been taking 20mg of this drug at night to help me sleep and also for restless legs. As far as both of the above conditions it has worked well. I have been taking this drug for about 2 months now, but am concerned about the weight I am putting on. I am very active in my job at work and weight has never been an issue, so now I can't seem to stop gaining weight.

    I have had both Panic disorder and IBS. Dr prescribed this drug in attempt to ease IBS symptoms. Chose to discontinue due to increased heart palpitations.
