Yep its addictive, for me. I wasn't having that much trouble sleeping when I started it, was supposed to be more for social anxiety. At first it did definitely help. After 7 months or so I tried to go off, maybe too quickly, maybe not, and got this bad rebound insomnia. I eventually had no choice but to up my dose again. It was either that or become dependent on two sleep aids not one. So now I am finally down to .375 mg per day. Yes I split the pills that small in order to come down slow. I'm about ready to taper down another 0.125 mg. I am pretty confident I will get off it this time, but I can't say 100% until about 3 weeks after I completely stop. So not something to start lightly.

Having said that, I also believe it still has some mild effect on social anxiety. And has helped me more than it hurt.
