Side Effects
Started at 4mg bid, did well for 2 wks. Noticed some anxiety relief. Was increased to 4 mg AM and 8 mg PM and horrific headaches started. Needed a narcotic to break through pain. Reduced down to starting dose. Still have headaches. Don't know if I can stay in this. The anxiety relief is such a blessing, but the headaches are an every day side effect. Ugh.
