Dear Luv,
Have you tried all the anti-anxiety/anti-depressants. Paxil, Lexapro, Celexa, Zoloft? The ativan is very addictive. I would love to be on it 24/7 but know I can't be. My dr gives me clonazapam sparingly and I get a lecture about addiction with each script. I also had an addiction to pain pills which I kicked last month because I ran out & could not get more. My grandmother was addicted to ativan from her early 60's until she died in her early 90's. My point is, if you need it everyday to get thru the day, it's not a good sign. Will your dr. continue giving you scripts for it or will he/she cut you off? It becomes a crutch that enables you to not have to deal with the issues that stress you out. I know how bad panic attacks can be and I do take the clonazapam when I'm having one so I know they have their good qualities. My concern for you is that you're taking them everyday and will find it very difficult to stop.
I hope you can find an alternative to the daily doses of ativan.
Been there & done that! Best wishes!
