In brief: Possibly.
I prefer other anti-anxiety meds for my patients, but it could be fine .
.. If it's been rx'd by a md expert in mental health; if it is being taken exactly as directed; if it doesn't make you too drowsy or less effective in your activities; if it proves useful; if you are seeking additional ways to prevent and manage excessive stress. Work this through with your mental health specialist.
