Hi there and Welcome to HW
So glad you found us as well
As was posted by Junebug this is a great group of very supportive and giving ppl
Empathy and caring is at your fingertips
You are now no longer alone and I do take ativan have for many yrs I take them when necessary but sometimes when other disease I have come out flaring I do have to take up to 3 a day
Yes you will get a peace of mind and I know many are afraid of meds but I would try it to see how you feel and how your anxiety is when on it
How much are you suppose to take or is it PRN ( when needed)
I also believe that the necessay tools like breathing relaxation and Cognitive behaviour
al Therapy should be tried as well to help you out with your journey
There are many posts on the CBT and other techniques ( probably in back pages you will see number at top) that you can check out for yourself or ask and you will get answers and direction from many good ppl in the same position as you
I hope we see you around alot here and that you become comfortable being in our 'Lil family"
Take care and IMO try the meds keep us posted okay on how it goes ......
YOu will not be buzzed or rendered useless at least not that I have ever heard so now you just have to try and get the med inot you and see how you feel
Stay with us and stay strong
