Thanks Dave! With the amount of time I've spent anxiety and panic attacks. Most people will try ANYTHING to stop it. But yes buyer beware and always consult your doctor before adding other medications or supplements to your routine. Anxiety medications such as benzodiazepines are a high risk for abuse and are dangerous enough as it is and withdrawals are serious. Seizures being apart of that can happen unexpected and cause harm to you or other people. Someone I know was in a near fatal car wreck from the seizure while driving. If you have been on a high dose and stop suddenly that can happen, you need to talk to your doctor before you just stop.
