Sounds to me like he didn't do a very good job explaining to you what you would be going through while you waited for the Zoloft <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> kick in. How long were you on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>? You say you started the Zoloft just three weeks ago, is that also when you started the ativan? If it was, then you really shouldn't be feeling much in the way of w/d from it. (But....
How is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> different than Xanax,I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> 1 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> 3 times aday was making it 8 hours between doses now because of my early wake up time or teh med not working as well im taking it like ever 5 to 6 hours''''''Could i be double dosing this way.....i can feel when the pills wears off its like the side of my head starts feeling wierd but im also being more dizzy lately....
I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>, but very rarely. I got a little dizzy and wobbly the first time I took it. After that, I've been fine. I do get very sleepy and the effects (feeling calm and in control) lasts about two to three days. I only take it when I know I'm going to be confronted with something huge (ex: public speech, workshop, or etc). It's not meant to be taken everyday; only when necessary. If you take it as directed, then you won't have any problems.
They are both very addictive along with every other benzodiazepine(valium,klonopin,ativan, librium,xanax) with xanax the one thing that can make it worse is the fact that if you abruptly stop using it you can have a siezure depening on your dose and how long you've been taking it. But in the end <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> and xanax basically rank about the same in my opinion, but you should really contact your prescribing doctor to get their opinion.
These are some very potent medications, and everyone reacts differently <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> them. The biggest reason is because, depending on how long you would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> one of these meds, you will have to deal with rebound insomnia when you stop taking them. The rebound insomnia is often bad enough that it makes the initial insomnia look like a walk in the park. Insomnia meds should be limited to the shortest course possible, to avoid dependency, and the rebound insomnia issues.
my doctor says, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> as a trial sort of thing so that I know it works.. eg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> one on a night I am with someone and see what it does. Thing is, I only want to try it when Im having an attack. my main fear is that it will bring more fear on.
They have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> adjust it slowly though When my Daughterr messed up her doses, we had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the start though. The bluriness went away too!
cali, yes i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> but not for everyday use,they are only good for now and than . if you are having them all the time and nned something everyday . i would ask for klonopin, it worjks great for me . i took it .25 in morning and .25 at night it reaches steady state after two weeks and it really helped me out .
Maria- I think what you're doing is fine but some do switch to Valium because of it's long acting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span>. It's up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> you. Personally,I'd do what you're doing now...and as long as your doctor is aware it's all good. Yes,as long as you're tapering down it's great! It doesn't matter how long it takes;just keep going down. You can ask the doctor about taking it every other day,as well. Sometimes that helps...
Also Lorazepam has such a short 1/2 life so I have these symptoms more often. Do you have any helpful ideas of how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> reduce the anxiety or how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do the taper? Cut out a part of the afternoon dose, or both am and afternoon equally in small doses? I could take 1/4 -1/2 of the bedtime dose and add to the afternoon, but then would I be able to sleep? I am using 25 mg. trazadone for the past 2 weeks to help with that since the med only gives me 3-4 hrs. now.
If I need a little more to get over the hump I will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a very small dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>. It helps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the edge off. I don't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have the same fondness for other drugs so taking ativan or anything to take the edge off doesn't seem to affect me.
How long does anxiety symptoms last without taking the benzoes. I had one for a half hour last night then it when away only to return for an hour. After that it was time for ativan.
today I wake up with that breathing problem that stays all day. How long should it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for lexapro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> really make a difference or is there anything else physical that I should check out??
My doctor just prescribed Paxil to me today and I was wondering how long it will be before I can expect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> feel the results. I was also given some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the edge off and it seems to help. I look forward to any replies.
It took you a long time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> this point, so it makes sense that it will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> awhile <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> feeling good, right? Just think, in a few weeks you will be able to enjoy your precious babies without feeling like you're in a fog...congratulations on quitting. You're doing the BEST thing for yourself and your family.
I told them at the Er that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> worked the best but still got xanax. So I now refuse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> it only after the third time. Now I'm back to square one. I hope ativan worked for u. It did for me and was able to have a sense of relief for a few days with the ativan. I hope u do to. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I thought I was just feeling more panicky.
Please know you are not alone. This Forum has really helped me! I''m on day 9 off FENTANYL & day 3 off Darvocet. I used the Darvocet to help with the Fentanyl WD's. Fentanyl is waaaay stronger than Morphine! Anyway, I'm feeling better today. I woke up with a little bit of a craving for the Darvocet, but what I did was EAT! I lost 19 pounds in 2 months on the Fentanyl. I look bad! But, i don't care. Just make the leap & get started!
5 mg ativan for just in case. My question is how long until the Celexa starts working? If I use the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> too often will it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span> how the Celexa works? How hard are these to come off of?
I too was concerned about the long term but my doc said she had had patients on it for long term with no ill <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span>. Everyone acts differently <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the drugs as far as how their body processes them. It gets out of my system really fast. It has a quicker onset than klonopin and a shorter half life. I didn't notice any ill effects as far as mood goes but again everyone is different.
I was taking 8-16mg per day (alternating). How long does it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for the Sub <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> release from your receptors? I believe there is a half life of 36 hours, but does that mean that after 36 hours you start to detox from it? The reason for stopping it is this. I broke my hip back in June and had to have a total hip replacement. The hospital D/C me on Fentanyl 50 mcg/h because my Sub Dr. recommended it.
hi i take lorapam my doc switched me to klonopin but i have dont it yet till tues are wed so i dont know how it works your doc just wants you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stay on what your on so she have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> switch.....ask her why she wont do it.
If you've been on the lorazepam (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>) for two weeks now, it seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me that the dizziness should have abated by now. Why it hasn't suggests to me the POSSIBILITY of you having an over-sensitive reaction to this particular med. The first side effect of lorazepam listed under CNS (central nervous system) is dizziness, so it's not to be unexpected.
As a professional myself, I was completely disgusted by her reaction. I continued <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span> while figuring out which natural medicine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span>. However, I don't like the side effects that goes with it. The naturopathic doctor prescribed GABA and 5htp for me to take. However, the 5htp seems to aggravate my anxiety if taken at full dose at 100 mg. GABA seems to help but I can't take it at a full dose. I take a third of the capsule and mix it with water.
You can do a general search online for the drug, just type in the name in the search rectangle, and you can find dosage info and advice as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> how much a person should <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> and how often. But whenever you feel the anxiety building, take the medicine, tho. It will make you somewhat sleepy and your mouth will be dry, so drink extra water, and you can drive if that's in the mix, but practice ahead of time so you'll have a handle on how slowed your reaction time is.
hey how long have you been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>? benzos are not meant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be taken for long periods of time due to risk of dependence as well as the fact that your body will become accustomed to it and you will need higher doses to get the same effect. you should not be taking ativan for more than a month, i am not a doctor but i am relaying info my general MD and my psychiatrist have given to me.
One of my dr's said it could be it's happening cause in the mornings, my body is now craving more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ativan</span>. I dont want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> more, I really want off those things now. Can someone give me some insight on this?
A lot of SSRI's have that initial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span>. You have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> give them longer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get any benefit. They all do that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me for about a week. The SNRI's like Effexor are a little less stimulating and provide better relief for anxiety, in my opinion. I am presently on Celexa because of insomnia with Zoloft and sleep issues with Effexor XR. I have taken Klonopin for a few years and it is a Godsend. My present Doc doesn't like benzos so I have gone from 2mgs a day to less than 1mg a day.
