I seem to recall reading a couple of individual testimonials of it helping, either alone or in combo with an antidepressant. I'm not aware of any clinical trials testing its effectiveness for SAD, but haven't searched medline for articles.

I think that's the case. In absence of statistal info on its effectiveness, one reason to not typically try it might be its shorter half-life compared to clonazepam (Klonopin)
