Re: New Ativan User
Sep 28, 2006
Well I would have to say it is a short term fix (for most)......but I intend it to be a long term one for me as my situation is probably abit different to many. I have very high blood pressure when I get too anxious (210/140 has been recorded) and then a panic attack can follow (neally gave my doctor one when she took my BP). I don't want to take SSRI (too scared of the side effects) so I only take Ativan as a last resort.
My doctor doesn't want me to become addicted to them, so I really try only to averge no more than half of a 1 mg a day...sometimes I don't need any for a week.
I find the mental pain or physical pain of anxiety hard enough sometimes but those days when you have both together can be unbearable.:eek:
