I take Ativan/Lorazepam. I take 1 .5 mgs pill in the morning and one later in the evening.
Here's how it works for me. When I'm feeling anxious I take one, and then it just calms me down, but not in a really drugged way at all. You might feel a little bit tired, but a normal kind of tired. It just slows your nervous system, and slows your mind a bit from the normal 100 thoughts per second (jk LOL but that's what it's like for me when I'm panicy) to like just a relaxed feeling.
For me personally, it doesn't make me feel crappy, but the problem is is that apparently your body can get used to it very quickly.
I've been taking it for about
two months now, two pills equal to 1 mg a day.
At first I was pretty drowsy on it, but it only two a couple days to get used to.
