Ativan (Lorazepam) 0.5mg
Taken twice a day, morning and evening.
This is used to relieve anxiety.
Why I took it:
My PCP prescribed it after we discussed my issues with depression, my anxiety attacks, and my new needle phobia.
Why I no longer take it:
Ativan is supposed to give you immediate results. It takes effect immediately, no long period waiting for it to kick in, but it did nothing for me. There was no difference from an hour before taking it to an hour after taking it. I was prescribed Valium to replace it.
How long I took it:
Almost a month.
