I've had a prescription for 50pills since February. It is now August, and I still have half left - so I'm not abusing ;)! Lorazepam (sometimes only half a dose) also helps with muscular/arthritis pain. But I wonder whether it will increase my low-level depression (e.g. occasional weepiness, for no apparent reason). It's been a difficult two summers: last summer I tok care of my husband who had cancer. Thank God he recovered. This year, work is the great stressor.
