i was prescribed .05-1 mg every six hours as needed 2/6/11; i am having hallucinations that are not unpleasant; they are lucid, and i know i am hallucinating, i can interact with the scenes played out. it actually seems to be quite soothing but then i have random hallucinations (for example, i SAW the dog inside, but then my husband brought him in) and i am doubting my grasp of this reality. what is going on?

Hallucinations are listed as an infrequent side effect of ativan. This means one in 100 to one in 1000 occurences in post marketing studies. So while it is not common, it can happen. I agree, you need to let the doctor know asap.
I would hate for you to lose the dog, lol. Not trying to make light of this situation but relax and let the doctor know soon.
