FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: ATIVAN

User Comments:


For Insomnia “I used to take sublingual ativan for sudden anxiety and panic attacks and it worked well and quickly. I did find it calming, and so I didn’t ever use it for insomnia per se, I did sometimes take it in the evening to relax and it did a fine job of that.”

For Anxiety “Prescribed by G.P. for anxiety 4mg. A day approximately 10 years ago, along with Zopiclone for 15 mg. for insomnia. I started to abuse both about 2 years ago. Sitting in a Treatment Centre for Drug Addicts, while I type this. Do not take Ativan or Zopiclone, easy to become addicted to both. Went through Hell detoxing and it took 19 days to get off the Ativan. There are better medications out there for you.”

For Anxiety “I was prescribed ativan I mg every 4 to 6 hours approximately 6 years ago. This was given to me by my primary care physician as I was randomly shaking and feeling sick without provocation. I am so confused by this drug. You see the withdrawals are the same as the symptoms it was prescribed for. I fear I am addicted to it. I work everyday and am a functional person, could I be addicted to this med? I try to wean off but it doesn’t work. I feel dizzy sick and shaky every time I try. This is an awful feeling. I wish I never needed it.”

For Anxiety “OK OK Ativan does work, especially when you’re having a full on attack in the psychiatrict unit. But just like everything else it does become addicting. Beware”

For Anxiety “Be careful with this sneaky drug at first it works great but very quickly I mean within days it is highly addictive before you know it you’ll be using it daily and withdrawal syndrome associated with benzo’s is horrible. Use with caution”
