Her doctor changed her to 0.5mg Ativan 2x/day. Is this the correct dosage ? She is anxious, dizzy, vomiting, etc... . I believe the doctor did his math wrong. What do you think ?
The reduction in the Ativan may be due to her age. I don't know her age, but it is believed that seniors need to be on lower dosages of medications that can make them dizzy, and can make them prone to falls or mental acuity issues. Please talk to her doctor. Perhaps he will be amenable to lowering the dosage only once a day for the time being. Then when she has adjusted to that, lower it another dose, until she adjusts. If your doctor is not willing to do this, perhaps get another opinion from a new doctor.
