How long are the effects of 1 MG Ativan?

- ativan, anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder
I took 1 mg of Ativan Sunday at noon after taking 2 mg of Ativan the night before for an anxiety attack. I am going to be seeing my girlfriend for the first time in a month on Wednesday but no sexual happenings will probably occur till Thursday. I am concerned about possible impotence but I am thinking that the Ativan and its possible side effects will be out of my system by then.
Is that a correct assumption or should I be worried at all? Please help me out. Thank you
Thanks for any help.

Hello rob2145. You will be fine. The Ativan (fast acting Benzodiazepine) has a 1 to 2 hour time to peak upon taking the drug. It has a half life from 6 to 12 hours. Regards pledge
