The young man was 20 years old when they were diagnosed with anxiety and give the ativan for use of insomnia as well. What are the affects of taking this medicine for a period of this length?
This medication is a benzodiazipine in the family of Valium so if he were to go off of it he would have to have the doctor taper it off slowly But at the sametime there really are no long studies other than us that have taken it for years and if its still working I would not mess with it. This one is one of the weakest of the class of drug and as long as he is taking it right there should be no problem. Chuck1957
