... should not be taking with ativan but my doc said it was alright to take. I am kind of worried, should I call my doc? I am on ativan for anxiety and she also gave me some lexapro but i havent started taking that and might not. I am not a fan of medicine. I am having swallowing issues and they are trying to rule out LPR or thyroid which i also read if you have hyperactive thyroid not to take which might be what i have. Can anyone help me? I am a bit freaked out!
