    It is commonly prescribed for anxiety. .25mg is, I believe, the smallest dose it is available in; but everyone has a different tolerance for that class of medication.

    It will calm you down, and make you feel more relaxed. You should be cautious of drowsiness, dizziness, and decrease in coordination until you get used to it.

    That's a child's dose. It may help a teen relax a bit, but not much. Same with sleep, taking it right before bed time will make you sleep better. As for an adult, the adult dose normally starts at 1/2 mg. (so double your dose) But most adults start at 1mg and go up to around 4mg
