Mary, my husband was never on this particular drug but on one of the other drugs they gave him I was questioning the side effects so we talked to the neurologists NP and she had us take him off for a month, which we did, but when he went back on the drug we gave him just one a day instead of two and that has worked great. You almost need to try it out and see what happens then go from there but listen to your instincts also. Blessings ✝️

It had no side effects on my hubby nor did it make a difference so we got him off. Adavan seemed to calm him down best.

Pat50 Why was it prescribed? For my husband, it was for anger and aggression.. I hope you see this.

My husband has been taking it for a couple of months now. No side effects that we've observed, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference.
