Reviews for Lorazepam

"I have taken Ativan off and on for about 5 years. I take 2 mg a couple of hours before bed. (6ish). I have nightmares from past abuse (severe adolescent abuse, smothered by a family a member, neglected). I'm 36 yr old female who had been diagnosed with BPD and PTSD. I only take Ativan. It helps. Tolerance does build up every few weeks I cut my doses, taper, and readjust. This medicine works for me and my mental health."

"Excellent for dealing with anxiety induced panic attacks, helped regulate mood swings, and really helped with sleep. However, tolerance builds up quickly and addiction is a serious concern. As such, it helped only as a short term solution to bridge the gap into a more stable regiment of medication."
