Sorry the plaq hasn't worked out. It has been a Godsend to me. I know when I have allergic reactions to meds or intolerance to them, anxiety and depression and stomach upset are awful. I'm sorry it didn't work. For some reason, I'm able to tolerate this medicine but not most others, maybe because it is broken down more by the kidneys. I used to take xanax but switched to Klonopin because it works better. Its just as addicting, it's a benzodiazapine, but I don't get the depression and anxiety hangover like I do with xanax, works for my restless leg syndrome, and is a mild antiseizure med. Actually, it perks me up more the next day more than anything. I hope they can find a treatment that works for you and is not horribly strong, like killing flies with a sledge hammer.
