Thanks for your post hun
I have worked and owned a home where at the beginning YES ativan was pushed to much by the doc ......it became noticeable that the residents in my Retirement home and Nursing Homes I worked in that ATIVAN would and could cause more combative and aggressive behaviour
After seeing this for more that 30 odd yrs it became more of a ongoing battle with docs and proving the theory BUT theory was proved and many ( not all ) ..but majority were taken off ATIVAN and put on another med ..........
Depends on the person .....IMHO.Just my half cents worth.
