So my pdoc upped my amount to 1 ml twice a day. This was not a good thing. My anxiety got so bad I was hospitalized for a month. It is 6 months later now and I am living with bad depression every day. It won't go away. I'm sorry for ever letting the doc raise my amount. I want to get off this drug but the doctor won't let me because I am feeling too much depression but none of the anti depressants helped it. Help, I am stuck. How do I get off this ativan. I think that is what is keeping me sick.
