Somebody can help. I ran out of my ativan that I've been taking on a regular basis for 6 yrs. My new script is due to be picked up this upcoming Thursday. Anyways, I was having severe anxiety after about 15 hrs after my last ativan dose. So I try to call my doctor, Holiday weekend, no luck. So I break down and go to the ER. The doc there gave me Valium enough to last till I get my ativan Thursday. I was so shocked. I said are you sure this will help me after being on Ativan. He assured me it would. Has anyone else done this? Switch to a different benzo for a couple days with no problems? Thanks. Sorry this is a short novel.
