just an update, uped the dosage to 1 mg and still felt great (granted this was just hangin around the house watching TV and going out to dinner). Have a very minor (10-20 min.) speaking event tomorrow, going to try the Loraz in 1mg about an hour or two before that as a trial run.... usually wouldnt need anything before such a small event but want to see how it works anyway. As far as my anxiety... I dont get sweaty or anything, more just pulse quickens a bit and I speed up the talking, fogetting some stuff and kind of rushing. I need something that will calm me and slow me down a bit, which is exactly what this stuff is suppose to do.
