Good Morning Everyone -
 
Could you please share with me why Ativan and AD is a bad mix -  My hubby has suffered from Lyme Disease since 95 and in 2007 was put on Ativan for anxiety and panic attacks.  Any help and all opinions is so appreciated.

Hi Hope,
 
I don't know the answer to your questions . . .but have seen info posted here in the past.    This is a search of this website for Ativan and Alz.   Maybe you can find your answer here.
 
 
I hope this helps.
 
 
Blessings!

Ativan is in the Benzo family not good for AD or any dementia....

IMHO and in studies done NO ativan is NOT a good med for Alzheimer's at all
Benzo's can/ do make ppl worse wih this DD
There are other alternative meds out there
'PLZ check into them
and keep us posted
