    I got more Ativan today

    but my doctor told me to take it only if I can't fall asleep after 30 minutes. Why should I wait? I know I will need it. I just want to feel good again

    A Bearable World

    I was put on Ativan in April this year, and found it to be very helpful,, I notice it helps out with these bad PMS symptoms I get,and when I get anxiety attacks from facing crowds that I have to deal with while shopping. Also,when my ex husband gets under my skin,it helps alot...

    Hell

    I am glad that most people got a positive effect from this drug, but for me it made me ten times more nuts. I was given Ativan at the ER after having an intense panic attack from taking Zoloft. I took this drug for about three days and had non stop panic attacks, I honestly...

    Fear Of Dentist

    I have always been afraid of the dentist since I was young. Just the sound of the drill just sends chills down my spine. Sometimes it feels as thought it will drive me up the wall. When I was in my late twenties there was a dentist who had the answer to my problem of avoiding...

    Very Strange.

    I was recently prescribed Lorazepam (generic of Ativan), and when I learned it was a benzodiazepine, I was nervous to take it. My doctor gave them to me for anxiety. For about three years now I've been having anxiety attacks, so I decided to finally get help about it. Like I...

    Today...

    This has been helping me a lot. ****. I don't want to go off of it. Eventually, I'll have to. And then what? If I'm on benzodiazepines for an extended period of time, I'll become dependent, and that's why I didn't want to take them in the first place.

    Maybe Addiction Is Ok?

    I wonder about Ativan...I've been on it for five years--first started when I spent a week on the psych floor of a hospital after I had one too many bad reactions to antidepressants. It calmed me down and had me back to normal within two days. I think I started taking 5 a day, now...

    I Do Now

    As of today, I start Ativan instead of Klonopin. I switched because it is covered on my insurance. but i still have to pay for it. I guess because the formulary was 2013! Hopefully in January I won't have to pay for it. I wonder what it will feel like..

    Anxiety

    Ativan is the best drug I've tried for anxiety. It helps you relax so much. If you struggle with anxiety I suggest you ask your physician to give you a scrip for it.
