Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Extremely effective for relief of severe anxiety and it has given me back functioning after years of truly disabling suffering. It should always be used on an as-needed or short term basis to avoid tolerance and addiction.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: I developed anxiety attacks, as many do after a Total Thyroidectomy. I suffered for a year with inadequate thyroid treatment and all the awful things that come with it. Then developed panic/anxiety attacks. They would last 6 or 7 hours at a time. I would barely feel better and then I got another. Ativan helped in 15 minutes. I've been taking it for two months and it has given me back the small part left of my post-thyroid life. Thanks to my thyroidectomy, I will never be well again. But at least I don't have panic attacks.

For Anxiety: I have been in many situations but once my company went bankrupt and the bills started piling up I began to have such severe anxiety attacks that I have lost my vision. Had numbing in my lips and trouble sleeping. I take 0.5 mg when I notice my anxiety coming on. Take 1 mg before I go to bed, helps me relax enough to sleep naturally without being tired the next day. I started taking some supplements and exercising and noticed that I need less and less throughout the day.

For Anxiety: I was prescribed 1mg lorazepam about 3 months ago. This medicine is really not helping me that much. I have severe anxiety and depression and was taking Xanax for 6 years. But doctors want to put you on something less addictive. With the lorazepam I take 3 1mg pills a day, my anxiety goes down 1/4 of the way.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Good medicine, use daily up to 3 mg/day. On it for 15 years. Have ADD and DID, so take also to calm down with all that's going in my head. Keeps me sane so why not and I need it to make my days okay.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Hello, I'm a 38 year old female that had a seizure for the first time 3 weeks ago. I ended up in the hospital for 10 days. EEG did not show anything. I noticed that when I would think about my ill father, and upcoming responsibilities that I'm going to have to deal with, my foot starts cramping up, then leads up my leg until it makes my whole body do weird movements, and my hands and feet feel like they are spiraling and crushing in my skin (hallucinating feeling). I breath deep, fast, panicky. sometimes I pass out at the end and become incoherent, and sometimes the cramping just releases in an instant and I remember everything. Ativan is the only thing that prevents this from happening.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Sedation: Just not strong enough, Klonopin or Xanax or really any other benzodiazepines, works better.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Going through a heart breaking split with the love of my life after seven years. Hows does this happen? Well, when a man (me) is 20 years older than his love, it's inevitable. She is 31, beautiful and feels her clock ticking. I have already raised my kids. You get the picture. The gut wrenching part is that we love each other. That said, you can imagine the wild ride I've been on emotionally. This medicine saved me. I'm sleeping, eating some what and my head doesn't race so much with the thoughts of her someday in a new family. I can function, and the tears for the most part have stopped. 0.5 mg 3 x a day as needed. Right now I take it 2 to 3 times a day but feel I can probably get down to just twice daily. This medicine has saved me.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: 1mg during a panic attack is good with minor dopiness felt. 0.5mg if panic is on-setting and to keep it at bay.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Panic Disorder: I been having these episodes of panic since 19; after a breakup with my baby's father, I woke up 1 day couldn't breath and went to hospital. Thought I was dying or having a heart attack. They didn't know what was wrong with me after all kinds of test I've was going back and forth 5 x a day finally they figured I had Anxiety disorder/panic attacks! I have taken Bio-feedback, relaxation techniques, therapy and medications until I found out that Ativan 3 x 1mg/day or I will be a regular in the E.R. Xanax works but not as long or as Well.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Ativan has been great for me and my anxiety. I have been using it for over 10 years but don't take it everyday just when needed. I may go a month and not need it. I really don't know what I would have done without it.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: Love it. My doctor just tried to switch me to Buspar, but I just read all the reviews and found not one good thing. I don't even plan to try it. I have been taking 1 mg of Ativan as needed for panic attacks for a year and will stick with it.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Nausea/Vomiting: This medication did not work at all to control my nausea. It made me intensely sleepy, but I was still nauseated.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Insomnia: Ativan is a great medicine and glad my psychiatrist prescribed me 1 mg 2 times a day. Though I use that as well as Klonopin but Ativan gets me to sleep sometimes and Klonopin keeps me asleep. Overall I believe its a God send.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: I've been taking Ativan for over a year and a half. It's a wonderful quick cure for anxiety. I recently have been going through some rough times and my anxiety has been through the roof. But thanks to my wonderful doctoring staff, I have been handling it very well.

Ativan (lorazepam) for Anxiety: I developed anxiety very fast and didn't know what it was until one day when my heart was beating out of my chest and I started worrying about my life changes. Went to ER twice in a month thought I was going to have a heart attack. I am 25 and I never knew anxiety can be this bad. I started taking Ativan and it's been 4 months now. I started with 2 a day and now I'm taking one a day. It's a great pill not many side effects, a bit disoriented sometimes but I can sleep better and eat more. I am planning on staying on it until my life gets back on track and once everything settles down I will get off of it. Anxiety is a hard thing to deal with on your own. Only if you have it you understand.

Review by can't breathe:

For Anxiety: I thought I was having a heart attack in 2004, went to the ER and learned it was a panic attack. My life is stressful 24/7, but I could not believe I had this! The Doctor gave me a Valium and sent me home. I went to my Doctor and told him what was up, he immediately put me on Xanax. I was cured! It also helped greatly with my depression and short temper I had had for years. I was fine for 4 years, then I moved to being okay.

Review by lrodzjr:

For Anxiety: I took 1mg of Lorazepam for about a year to help me with anxiety. I also take Cymbalta for depression/anxiety. My doctor directed me to take two 1mg lorazepams twice a day. The medication did help slightly but quickly wore off and I found my self taking three pills between 8 am to 5 pm just to make it through my work day. My doctor increased the dosage to 2mg twice a day and I still did not feel any better. He then switched me to 2mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) twice a day. My life has changed dramatically. I am one of the most social people at work and off now. Side effects; I have little to no libido, trouble maintaining an erection, and extremely delayed ejaculation. But I value the quality of my renewed life over my sex life.
