Hi Roslynn :+)

Nice to see you. Xanax was the to-go emergency med. You are spot on, I think. Emsam does something, guess it is working. I certainly would consider it for med sensitive types.

I'm wondering about the point at which it decreases being stimulating and more,...

Valium is feeling more like klonopin--depressive. It's always something, it seems

Kind regards, and hope the swimming was fun,

> I was reading your post and it seems like you need an emergency "go-to" drug for times of extreme panic, etc. I hope your doctor will help you find something that works.
