I was given 5mg and told to take as needed for anxiety but I can't find any info on it being used this way. I was taking xanax for when I would start to feel anxious but it made me sleepy so my doc suggested this. I only need it once a week or so. I also spoke to her about how I was taking lamotrigine for bipolar and I'm wondering if she mixed up what I was trying to change. It was my first time seeing her as my usual doc wasn't available.
needinghelp; Yes this is used for Bipolar and Schizophrenia and has also helped many with on an as needed basis it comes in like a film and you have to dissolve it under or in the mouth do not break it or cut it in any way you must take the whole thing. What does concern me is most the time this is an everyday medication to work the best. And if the Xanax was making you tired this could to at least for the first few times you take it. It may work pretty good with the condition you say you have so I think it is worth a try. As you know not much we can do but try them and many people it looks like have a pretty good success with it. Just remember always almost the first time or two you use it that it well make you more foggy and sleepy more than likely and then it gets better so if possible try it at home. If you would like to type the name in the search bar on the top of your profile and the drug well come up and you can read some just remember not all things they list happen to very many people so don't let it scare you off.
