Do you have anxiety? I'm confused.
I've been on Ativan/Lorazepam for 3 months now, the chest pain may be related to your anxiety, and most likely is.
The drug simply calms you down, and gets you to stop thinking about
your anxiety so much.
Ativan is NOT a muscle relaxant, it is a sedative, and will calm you down so you stop having the chest pain because you're most likely panicking about
it and causing it to happen more.
Ativan is a benzo, in the groups of Klonopin, Xanax, and those kinds of drugs. It simply will calm you down and help you be able to think more clearly in times where you feel a lot of stress.
What dosage are you taking?
I myself take .5 mgs a day, sometimes 1 mg as needed if I'm having an anxious or panicky day and the one pill just won't cut it.
Hope this helps.
