... and what are the chances of addiction?
Considered the lowest they make it only gets higher from this number. The chances for addiction are very slim if you take it as its prescribed if it is abused and you take more thats when addiction sets in. Thats also when it becomes a problem for you when you want to DC this med.
For me, that would be a very low dose. However, I have been on it for seven years. I was up to 10 mg a day just to get the effects I use to get off of 2 mg. I think you are safe but please be careful. The statistics say that is has a low addiction rating but I strongly disagree. This is a very hard drug to come off of and most people can't do it by them self. I wish you the best of luck. Take care.
low but no matter how low it is it is highly addictive if used longer than 4 wks and up 1 month you have chance of being physically addicted , trust me i know how bad this drug is and i came off it myself and still doing so its not worth it no matter how great it is try something else please ...

If you find over a period of time that tis dose is no longer working for you, you might want to talk to your doctor about other anxiety medications. With any drug there is potential for addiction. You need to weigh the benifits of the drug and potential of addiction. If the drug is very benificial for you and you stay at the same dose and don't feel the need to take more over a period of time you should be find
