I went to my primary care dr to discuss my anxiety
, he is aware that i am a recovered opiate addict, and i told him i went to rehab for 30 days. Im almost 6 months clean and the anxiety is through the roof. I am in therapy and trying to process all of the reasons why i used/abused, etc,,,, Well he started me on .5 Ativan twice a day, i called up and told him its not working, he told me to go up to 1. twice a day. DOes this drug need to get in your system for it to start working?
