Doctor changed me from 2x 2mg Xanax for my panic attacks and PTSD. Now he gave me Ativan 1mg but the don't help out with my episodes. I called he says to just take some more but I dont know how much more?
Colleen; If the Doctor just said to take more and you have taken 1mg already I WOULD SAY START WITH TAKING 1/2 TABLET AND IF YOU STILL NEED IT TAKE THE OTHER 1/2 WHICH WOULD BE 2MG TOTAL IF IT WERE TO TAKE MORE THAN THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS LATER TRING TO GET OFF OF THEM. So try to keep it as low as you can where you are not suffering but where in time you will be able to get by with one. What really is happing is the withdrawal of Xanax and the getting used to the Ativan which really is a good switch but for your sake, I would try to keep it at 1.5 tablets for your sake so you don't have major withdrawal problems later. good luck
