Ask your doctor to switch you to ativan.

What does your Dr have to say about that?

Haven't talked to him about it. Just started thinking about it while researching for my quadriplegic father in law's drugs they are putting him on.

What makes you think a switch to Ativan would help?

Xanax makes me too sleepy. I used to take Ativan along time ago. Some quack switched me and I just never switched back.

Worth a discussion with your prescribing doc.

Why do you think its better then what the dr has you on? You do realize he has vast education and experience.
