Like the nice woman above me said, no it is not addicting. I was actually taking vistiral this past week in the hospital. I research and ask about all the medication they try an give to me, and I was having anxiety and they told me to take a vistirol instead of my PRN xanax. I was told by numerous doctors and nurses that it's a non habit forming anxiety pill. It was in no way any help to my anxiety, just because it made me sleepy doesn't mean it stopped my pulse from going up to 121, so i'm kinda pissed they were trying to do a mind over matter stunt on me, thinking they were going to trick me into thinking it was reducing my anxiety and I knew it wasn't. I think it's just more of a sedative that makes you sleepy, but very harmless... non habit forming.. and they just totally suck
