100mg seems like a typical starting dose. I doubt you'll get much side effect. Just avoid googling those patient forums which are crazy. hi
I'm still taking benzos, lowish dose of clonazepam, and it does nothing because I've been on too long. Same with all benzos.Your body gets used to them.
The psych I saw here put me on 3gm of the anti psychotic Quetiapine and it is actually helping a little. Side effects are constipation and feeling dizzy, I faint if I stand up too fast. I guess I can reduce the quetiapine once new AD kicks in.
Don't bother with meditation when you don't feel like it. I can't do that or yoga right now. My only job is to keep breathing
