I take ativan and I am able to function very well
I would say what Harry says is correct and they do have SUBLINGUAL ativan which is like Nitro it goes under tongue and into bloodstream right quick
I find the regular ativan work quicker if I let it melt as well
I dont think this will hurt you at all and I really believe it will help you to get calmed down
I believe alot of SSRI's need something in a benzo until they start to fully work
Good luck and keep us posted
Please do go by your docs RX .......if you find it is working ( sure you will ) you I believe will have some better times with the A/P it wont be as stressful IMO and the a/p rate will go down
Are you able to take during the day as well or what is your RX dosage I can take up to 3 per day 1 mg and I weigh about
100 pounds and like I said I still function very well .......It helps with my OCD and when I am alone with "Stinking Thinking"
