Welcome to Healing Well. Would you mind giving a bit more info re the Ativan, what dose are you on? Do you take any other medication besides the Ativan?
With a bit more info I may be able to respond better to your question.
Hey thanks so much for clarifying your dose. I agree .5mg of Ativan may be enough for your anxiety.
Dan is right, a longer acting benzodiazipine may be in order for you. Or perhaps a low dose of an AD for example Lexapro.
Please check with your physician and keep posting. We are happy to help as much as we can.
Hugs to you
My doctor prescribes ativan for insomnia so I don't doubt that you would feel a bit groggy! I find some other medications such as valium (which have a longer half life) are better for daytime anxiety.
Sorry to hear that you are having a rough time of it at the moment, but keep posting and people will help you out. Some days can actually be normal (for me)
