Ativan and advil

Common Questions and Answers about Ativan and advil


Avatar f tn I read a little on Ativan and it says it does cause withdrawls with some symptoms including insomnia and anxiety. Going through withdrawals is a long process and is really draining but can be done. Like I said I haven't had any experiancwith Ativan in particular but someone will come along and hopefully be able to give you some more help then I can.
Avatar f tn The doc reluctantly gave me Ativan, three of them and I reluctantly took them from her because I'd rather take nothing but I'm not sleeping much lately. I tried one last night...was going full tilt for hours last evening cleaning non-stop til nearly 12:30am then took one, crawled into bed and read for another hour or so. Today .. I'm wasted. My eyes have dark lines coming down under them and I'm just wasted. Maybe from wearing myself out .. but my energy has been on hyperdrive a bit.
1855076 tn?1337118903 I've always had high anxiety and have used Ativan on and off for a lot of years. Five years ago I was given it to help with sleep. Then it was prescribed 1 mg. 3 times a day. I haven't used it in quite a while for sleep or anxiety. I've been using Valerian root with mixed results. I definitely feel like I need something for anxiety. I'm under a lot of stress right now with kids, ex-husband, and my dad who hasn't been well since January. Any ideas on all-natural things for anxiety?
Avatar f tn -Could the alcohol relapsed me, into my opiate mind or something? To night I too 4 ativans at night, and 3 Advil PM, and 3 Benadryls. I got geal drowsy and if i close my eyes I would see weird things. So its not working, I just don't understand how I feel fine just taking only one, but at night I wake my self up with jerks, and anxiety.
Avatar m tn My doctor is not the best communicator of all my questions. How do i get away from Ativan, yet feel okay? and how do i know if zoloft is working or best for me or is there something else?
Avatar n tn Thanks for your replies. I talked to my doctor and she asked me to try taking up to 2mg of Ativan and a couple of tablets of benadryl for sleep last night. At first, I thought it didn't work, which made me even more anxious. But I woke up almost 7 hours later without knowing I slept. Lately, I have been getting this jolt/twitch/falling sensation right before I could sense I was about to fall asleep, which wakes me up. It sacres and worries me (didn't help with my insomnia anxiety).....
5562701 tn?1369975008 and they always put me on pain meds and Ativan,then hydrate me and send me home on Ativan. Guess what?now its the Ativan! So,I took my very last Ativan on sunday ,this is Thursday night(actually its 12:12am) so its Friday morning. Last night I laid on the bathroom floor vomiting and screaming in pain till 3am,then fell asleep till 6 am. I had a lil diarrhea today but no vomiting. of course,i had mostly ice chips all day. Im not sure I can stand another night like last night.
Avatar n tn I have advised the Doctor about the Zoloft, Ativan and Flurazapam and he didnot say anything. Now he is on vacation and I am wondering if there is any concern with these drugs and the needle biopsy. I know it takes time to get off Zoloft and then another 3 or 4 weeks for it to start working again, so I am really not eager to quit, but I don't need any other problems either. Do I have anything to be concerned about?
Avatar n tn Vomiting, shaking horribly, fever, cramping, diarrhea, just basically like the Stomach Flu and a really bad case of it. If you have a med like Xanax or Ativan take 1 at the same time you take the half of your usual dosage of meds. They should help calm you. You will loose sleep for days, but each day you will become stronger. Don't be alone during this time. By the way...I also have unexplained bruises all over my body. I even became almost jaudiced. Please seek help.
Avatar n tn I am a recovering drug addict so tylenol and Advil are my only options. Take tylenol then 2 hours later take Advil, have you tried the migraine meds OTC? I cant take them due to all the caffeine. I wish you the best, and remember Panic and Anxiety are REAL!!!!!!
Avatar n tn 2months ago I awakened during the night with chest pressure, sob, palpatations,weakness and nausea I had taken 1 advil cold and sinus nightime before going to sleep and thought that maybe somehting in the med was causing these problems the symptoms continued all through the night and the next morning I went to an emergancy room at that time I was hainvg multiple unifocal pvc's and couplets at times more than 15per min, That was the begining of the situation..
Avatar n tn I went two weeks without getting this prescription filled, I was improving dramatically everyday, then sundenly one sunday I had a panick attack and it lasted three days. during those three days I tried ativan and it didn't really work. My underlying cause of anxiety was that I live by myself far away from my family AND I was concerned I had a serious issue due to my heart (I was born with a heart murmur) I didn't have insurance either.
Avatar n tn At first I spotted for two weeks the first two months I took Yaz then I had no period at all. Yes it helped my cramps and back aches. But I'll gladly take some advil instead, and I'd rather have a period instead of not fitting into my clothes, I go to the gym 3 times a week, so after reading your info I understand the weighted gain. I also have noticed the anxiety more and more with each month.Good luck girls. Not the pill for everyone!
Avatar f tn Prescribed. So I wake up feel crappy- take advil and melotoniam and sleep again. Day 3 and 4 I will stop and stat awake. Hope it helps. Thank you my friends.
Avatar n tn The doctor gave me a week off from work. He up my Prozac and gave Ativan. Ativan can be taken three times a day, when you feel anxiety coming on. This is like a magic pill, I feel so relax. I only take it one pill a day. The strange thing when I went back to work, two other people I work with went home for the same thing. Where we work is really hot and stressful. We deal with the public and its crazy there. I feel better knowing there are other people out there.
Avatar n tn Im 25, and i have experience that im really sensitive to light, I though it was allergies, but took severall shoots and didn't work, today i took Advil Cold & Sinus and seems that relif my sensation on my eyes. Has any one experience this before?
Avatar f tn I want to wake up just once and be thankful and appreciative for what I have, and not sit and think about what I don't and feel like I have no purpose anymore. It's not that I think I had purpose while taking pills, I just didn't care if I did or I didnt. No going back now, but I am scared I'm never gonna get back to normal.
1211508 tn?1343083205 Hi. My I have a fever from the flu and can't talk to my Dr til Monday since it's the weekend. I'm taking a benzo (klonopin). Can you take benzos, such as Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin WITH Tylenol or Advil???
563659 tn?1310521517 hey roughly about 18000mg of wellbutrin , 8000mg or more of trazodone and 1200mg of celexa and who knows how much ativan sittin around in here should make for on really effing fun cocktail ... chase that there bit down with some 18 year old glennfiddich & lemonade and ill bet ya i wont have a hangover ! oops must add 2 advil just to make sure ... scotch hangovers can be a real B!
Avatar f tn Oh **** I had prayed I would have slept til morning. Took 3 Tylenol pms and 2 ativan and still pretty much tossed and turned with small periods of sleep (where I would talk and scream all night scaring my boyfriend). Anyway got out of bed at 1030. Ok watched a movie with him. Was antsy and crabby and started with the sneezing and running nose. Was bad but not terrible. (when comparing the w/d u go to after being off for 3 days).
Avatar n tn same symptoms, but no anxiety, I also have big knots and a sore shoulder, I think the rib cage pulls causing the cartilage on sternum to become tender, and it can't ge better until your back is strenthened alot with special stretches.
Avatar n tn Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4.
1697690 tn?1329127238 I have been using a lot lately, maybe 400mg of oxycontin and then add in the heroin and it just is killing me. I am so miserable lately. I didnt really notice it til a few weeks ago, but i know i am not hte person i once was. I am so depressed all day, i dont want to do anything, i isolate from all the people who care about me, my thoughts are so impulsive, i am literally self destructing and bringing everything down around me.
503727 tn?1210442710 that helped a little, I was able to go to the store again, but I would still get nervous, but I had my ativan handy i would be in an asle and pop an ativan with nothing to drink I felt like a druggy.. but it will pass, just stop waiting for it to happen, I know thats easier said than done trust me, but it will pass i promise... try to find one thing that makes you feel safe.. like say to yourself if i take a shower i will be fine that will help..
Avatar n tn Your TSH is way off and there is a big connection between mental health and wonky thyroids.I am bi polar and there is lots of documentation on thyroid and bi polar.Just google thyroid mental health anxiety and you will be amazed at the reasearch you can print up and take to your doc.
Avatar f tn But if i were you, I would have a talk with your doctor and ask him to prescribe you 10 ONLY 10 valium, or ativan in a very low dose to keep in your purse. Only having the ten pills will help you to learn to deal with your anxiety attacks and know when its actually serious enough to have to take something for it. It sounds crazy, but that's the only thing that helped me.
544292 tn?1268886268 So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Avatar f tn He told him to take Advil and wait it out. Our whole family became sunburned while out waterskiing and as our sunburns started to feel better on day three, his was getting worse. There has to be something else going on here to make all of you have this intense pain. Wish there was a doctor out there who could figure this out.
Avatar f tn We have been with the pain management doctor for just over a year now, but we are constantly fighting my husband's tolerance. My husband is a big guy and he has always been able to drink and take the strongest medication with no effect on his body what so ever.
