I have been on 12mg per 24 hours for about 40 years of Lorazepam. Your dosing is exceedingly small. I assume it is prescribed for panic attacks. Benzos were invented in eastern Europe in the mid 1960's. Before their invention, docs used anti-histamines to treat anxiety. Vistaril is one of those anti-histamines. It is RX only. 25mg. once a day may work for you. Otc Benadryl liquid may work also. Kenison P. Ray, of Houma,La.
I too have gone through being put on benzo's to help with my panic attacks. After being on them off and on for years I believed that maybe I couldn't be without them. I knew that being on such a med was not helpful for me coming from a very highly addictive family. Alot of drug addicts and alcholism in my family. So after talking to my doctors about this concern they put me on Hydroxyzine(vistaril) and it has really helped but do be ready for your attacks to increase while going off the benzo's... you should be able to take the Hydroxyzine while taking the lower dose of Lorazapam but check with your doctor first. It might be a bumpy road but it can be done and Hydroxyzine may be the way for you.
