Friday, March 26, 2010-Ativan
I am basically living off/functioning by constantly taking ativan and it doesn't even make the pain go away, it makes me a easier person to be with and
makes my anxiety lessen. I am worried because the doctors will only give me 10 ativan a perscription, so I started taking the klonopin. I am worried
that maybe this isn't the best thing to be doing (taking anti-anxiety medication-especially this kind) but I don't feel like I have any other options. I am sort
of worried I will get hooked on it. My legs continue to hurt and the team hasn't offered any solutions to the problem. When they confirmed I had neuropathy, they did not offer any solutions to help with it. I spend my day just trying not to cry infront of people. I don't know how I could go back to work like this.

  1. Ativan was prescribed to me for anxiety. It is working great. My shaking has almost stopped. I can't believe what a different person I am. I wish I would of spoken with my Dr. years ago about my anxiety. The Ativan is working so well I noticed with my anxiety about gone I have a higher tolerance for people, people do not get on my nerves, has this happened to anyone else? I have not had any side effects from the Ativan. I am on 1.5mg's ativan daily. If I do good on this & my anxiety is under control I'll stay at this dose & not go up on it.
