    Ativan (lorazepam) appreciation

    Discussion started by fr8lover - Nov 13, 2003

    and as per 12oz rules, this isnt about recreational use of it.

    I get panic/anxiety attacks pretty regularly. just think of a total feeling of hopelessness and loss, with no justification or reasoning behind it. its just there. you get that "rollercoaster" feeling in your stomach and chest and every good thought you try to force into your mind gets turned bad, "nothing is going to go right."

    i just take 2 or 3 .5 mg pills and 15 minutes later, the worry might still be there, but for the most part you feel a shitload better.

    anyone else take these or other anti-anxiety mediacations? i lost all faith in ssri's and other anti-depressants after i took pretty much every type available and they only had negative effects on me. this is the only med i keep to "take as needed," and it works like a charm.

    I dunnnnoooo. I get those feelings like that often but I resist going to a doctor. I guess I'm just stubborn and will be stuck with feeling shitty but it seems like everyone takes ant-depressants lately....making everyone zombied out.
    Could the reason for this widespread depression be that there's *something* lacking in our present society? :confused:
    Edit: I've been getting panic attacks since I was around 12.

    Benzos are horribly addictive and withdrawl is worse than heroin withdrawl. Have fun.

    Yeah, I'm bi-polar which makes for lot's of fun anxiety attacks. I went to the hospital one time for anxiety and ended up having a panic attack right in the lobby. They gave me some ativan and that mellowed me out right quick. Those pills work great but they're supposed to be addictive as all hell. I never have my doc prescribe me more than I need.

    Prozac is fun and Zyprexa rocks.

    Us depressed types get all the best pills

    Go read the horror stories from people taking these daily for a year or more. I was on klonopin for about 9 months and never took more than the prescribed dose, but tapering still took 2-1/2 months and I still had joint pain and muscle spasms for another month after that.

    I'm not insulting your prescription or attempting to damage your ego, just telling you the truth. Calm the hell down.

    i am calm. sorry about the caps lock.

    i take the ativan when i get a panic/anxiety attack, which is usually once every few weeks or so. i dont take them every day and probably wouldnt.

    i take them so little that the nice mellow mood they put me in is nice, but every day like that would probably get old.
