I've been taking the ativan about a week and it does ok but still there's this edge there and it doesn't seem to work very long. I've read that Valium was better & lasted longer.
Hello minecraft70. Welcome to the site. I would simply explain to your doctor that you feel, believe that the Valium might be a better choice. Ativan works very quickly, great for high stress full moments, panic attacks, moments of high stress. Valium works long term, long term relief over say a 16 hour period whereas Ativan, after being taken, within a few hours the effect will have worn off and the body will be asking for another pill. Both drugs are from the benzodiazepine family and can become extremely addictive and having said that, more diificult to stop taking when it is time todo so. Plus and minus to taking both these benzodiazepines. Regards, pledge
