    Highly effective for stopping the onset of a Grand Mal if taken immediately when you have that 'sense' or 'intuition' that something is a little 'off' so-to-speak. Those with Epilepsy will know exactly what I am referring to. The only noticeable side effect was a slight sluggishness upon awaking from the first sleep after taking it, but other than that I would say it accomplishes what it is supposed to do.

    Dentist prescribed 3 for my last visit. He said to take two (1mg tablets) an hour before coming in. Did so, and I have to say they worked well. Wasn't bothered by the dentist at all this time!
