I recently developed terrible flight anxiety and have panic attacks on planes. I was prescribed 1mg Ativan but find it wears off in 2 hours or so and I still do get occasional feelings of panic during the time I have taken it. I will be going on a 15 hr flight soon and am very worried and am wondering if I can take this Ativan continuously for the duration of the flight as I feel it wearing off.
You should talk to your doctor about this there are medications that last longer than Ativan which should work better most the time you would not want to take the Ativan every 2 hours or it well catch up with you.
Definitely talk to your doc. There are benzos out there that last longer in your system than Ativan.
