My psychologist prescribed me lorazepam 0.5 mg that did nothing literally. Then I got prescribed alproazopam (Xanax) I took the required dose and nothing. Should I take more pills than prescribed for me? And if these don't work what will be the next drug?
14191; First you are worrying too much, It is not uncommon for many if the Lorazepam does not work to change to Xanax which is more effective but it could take a few days after you change to notice much effect after the change.. But never increase the dose without the doctor saying it is okay more doe's not mean it is going to work longer or better. And for now, don't worry about what the next step is there are many different medications to help you. But worrying about it well only make your OCD AND ANXIETY WORSE. But again never increase the dose of any prescription or non-prescription medication without the doctor saying it's okay, Just check with your doctor if it is still not doing anything there are many times they use the medication with another one and they both help improve your condition. Have a good day.
