> That sounds interesting, what brand name does oxazepam go by? I find I can use xanax but it's short acting and couldn't imagine taking it round the clock without getting really sleepy (not the same feeling I'm having now though from the Parnate, which is quite yukky).

Oxazepam is available as a generic, but I think the patented tradename is Serax, it has about twice the halflife of Xanax (approx. 8hrs instead of approx. 4hs). You would still need to dose 2-3x daily with it for good coverage.
