    Constant muscles twitching and cramping, especially while trying to sleep. Little bit ringing in esrs. Bad constipation. Frequent headaches. Some incontinence. Severe drowsiness and some dizziness. Terrible panic upon waking up. Tonight will b my 3rd night on 1 mg, and wish i hadnt already taken it tonight. This will b the last, i cant stand it. No sleep is the worst.

    I have not been able to sleep due to domestic abuse, current and past. My doctor put me on this med again recently because I stopped. F day one, I finally slept most of the night not worrying that something is about to happen. Psychotherapy is wonderful, especially while I'm awake, but when I sleep, I can't practice the techniques, so far no major side effect

I would wake up screaming and in a full blown panic attack that would take hours to calm down from. I eventually stopped sleeping. My dr. prescribed this as a last resort when everything else had failed. I really wished we would have started here. Since I have been taking ... Show Full Comment
