I take .5mg of ativan on an as needed basis. It calms me down, but not everytime. The problem for me is that if I take any more than .5mg at a time, it will just make me sleepy. It won't control my anxiety and allow me to be active at the same time.
I need my anxiety stopped, and I don't want to take a nap everytime that I need to take an ativan. I think I will be talking to my doc about valium. I have tried that and it doesn't make me tired and calms me down right away.
If we love without hope, can we stop without misery?
