Ativan. I would wake up in the mornings very groggy and couldn't get motivated until around 2pm. Very annoying. my Dr just had me drop back down to 10mg and 1mg of ativan. Big difference. my question is will the 10mg still help wih my nerve pain along witn my anxiety? Has anyone taken 10mg at night and 10mg in the morning? If so please let me know how the morning one makes you feel. I am currently on short term leave from work and need to know how I will do at work. I am a Phlebotomist (sticking needles in pts arms daily) and need to make sure I will be ok. Thank you for any feedback I can get.
