I was prescribed adivan to sleep/occasional anxiety and I've been taking it only as needed.I just read on here that if you miss a dose to take it as soon as possible.I've been only taking it a couple of times a week.Do I take it everyday?
Just when needed the directions for dosage are written for like that for all or most all medication here regardless. Althought if you have been taking a benzodiazepine every day you risk getting withdrawal symptoms including seizures if you abruptly stop taking the medication.
No, don't take everyday if u dont have to. Build up tolerance & coming off is awful... & dangerous. I had to keep having so it increased as I was tolerant,& I just wanted off. During taper awful anxiety.Didn't get Rx filled in time when I ran out & had grand mal seizures. Prob ok if u Dr just using on e in a whilemol
