anti anxiety - allows me to go out in public and interact like other people
occasionally too uninhibited - but not overly, as in when using alcohol
have taken this for several years at low doses, with breaks from 1 day to 3 months, to avoid a serious physical dependance.
allows me to function in public without panic or anxiety, but occasionally does interfere with sleep when having a break.
bad to mix with alcohol, VERY bad...

dizziness, migraine pain, sleepiness
This med caused dizziness & sleepiness. Along with that was the migraine pain which couldn't be relieved either. Because the dizziness & passing out was usually an indication of it effecting my blood pressure, I was taken off of it immediately.
