Overall:5 out of 5
Low adverse Reactions3 out of 5
Healing Power:4 out of 5
No dependency problems:4 out of 5
Cost-Benefit:5 out of 5
Sex: M
Age: 31
Location: Indiana
Time Taken: Off and on for 5 years years

Reason: Anxiety, Insomnia, Occasional Hives Date: 30 December 2009
Side Effects
Dry mouth, occasionally groggy in the morning (the benefit for me outweigh's the side effects experienced).

Additional Thoughts
For mild anxiety and mild insomnia, this medication (an antihistmaine) is great in comparison with more potent anti-anxiety medications that are controlled substances. It's not addiciting either. For severe anxiety for me (where you can feel hot flashes running up and down your neck/arms with each adrenaline rush), it doesn't have enough kick to get rid of it.
