Comment by a reader on Manasamitra Vatakam:
I had my share of worst with going for benzodiazepines , they gave quick instant reliefs. But actually we are embracing the DEVIL in order to escape from the demon.
lorazepam – Whenever i hear the name…not anxiety :)…. my heart will race at 300 bpm.
My immediate concern was not about anxiety but to quite these DRUG!!!. I Know its not real…a fake world…it will built for your ….esteem, confidence, will power…But the moment you step about from this drug its all Gone…Comes the worst nightmare…side effects. (light flashing in eyes , Feels like head is exploding off , Numbs, Dizziness , || anxiety attack was mild considering these)
The amount i suffered with the drug…Finally in-order to withdraw i had to go a roller coster ride for 2 months Nexito, Feliz, Oresta…etc . After finally escaped…. :)
But discovered a TRUE Medicine..im now out of anxiety..YES OUT OF ANXIETY…No Drug , Therapy etc
Thanks to the great saints, Legacy s called Ayurveda

Thanks for sharing your experience. But I suggest readers to consult an Ayurveda doctor directly, rather than self medicating with this (or any other medicine for depression / anxiety). http://ayurmedinfo.com/2012/06/29/manasamitra-vatakam-benefits-dosage-ingredients-and-side-effects/
