I believe the 'addictive' worries on Ativan, according to my doc, is that when you don't feel 1 is working anymore, you take
2. What happens is it becomes less effective
-term use, so you need to take more, then your body reacts negatively if it doesn't get it, thus, the addiction.
I am addicted to Ativan.There, I said it. Yeah me! Oh...bad me, still addicted.
My prescription is 1-2 tabs, 2x's daily 'as needed'.
