... i do this or would it be better if I take ativan as soon as I feel the anxiety starting?
You usually take the medication when you feel an anxiety attack coming on. That way if you do have one you will be fine and if you don't that's okay as well. As long as you take the medication as prescribe you'll be fine. Hope this helps. Hope the Ativan helps with your Anxiety Attacks. Good luck to you!
I'm not trying to sound like a jerk but I can't believe I'm answering this question. You need to take the Ativan as soon as you feel an attack coming on. Ativan takes the longest out of any benzodiazepine to feel the full affects of the medication anyways, so why wait? Ativan does have the longest half life out of any benzos, so it's a no brainer to take the meds asap.
