I was given Ativan intravenously at the ER when I went there for chest pain. Is this common?

1stTime; Really it is to get you to calm down and get the blood pressure and heart where they can get a correct reading. It really depends on the doctor But it is very common and just this amount well settles you down fast and have really no ill effects. Glad you are doing better and you may have to see your doctor next week and see what they sent over to your regular doctor so they can help you so you don't end up back at THE E.R. ROOM. PS ALSO SLOWS DOWN HEAVY BREATHING WHEN WE START TO PANIC OR AS I SAID GET THE HEART IN THE RIGHT RHYTHM. HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.
