Good morning everyone.

I am in need of some desperate advice. I have been dealing with some health issues for several months. I finally cracked under the pressure last week. In a previous post I told how Effexor didn't work for me and I am now on Lexapro.

It has helped a bit so far with my constant worry but I still feel like I am a wreck on the inside. I was shaking a crying all day and just thinking the worst outcomes of my illness. I try to tell myself over and over to stop doing that but it of course is not working.

My family doc prescribed by Lorazepam 1 mg. He said I can take it up to 3 times a day. I took one yesterday morning and I felt pretty good until about 8 p.m. Is that when it would start wearing off?

I have this terrible problem of waking up at 5 am every morning in a panic. I am not having an anxiety attack, I just can't stop worrying about my unresolved medical issues. Is it okay to take a Lorazpam in the a.m. every time I wake up like that? I don't want to be addicted to it.

Today is only my 8th day of Lexapro. Is is normal to need to take something like Lorazepam to help you get by?

Thanks for any help. I feel so scared and hopeless right now. I just don't know what to think or do anymore.
