I just started taking Ativan and I’m not sure if it works for me…?

3 Comments

I just started taking Ativan. The first time I took it, I took .5 mg and felt no different so today I took 1 mg and still didn’t notice much of a difference in my anxiety. Did anyone else have this problem with Ativan? Is this normal when just starting Ativan? Is it just not working for me or do you think my doctor will recommend increasing my dosage?

Answer:

You should not be feeling buzzed or sleepy. the best result is just that your emotions are less intense and anxious and that you feel a bit more confident and not so stressed out. If you are waiting for a physical high or something, you shouldnt be getting that. But I gotta say that with a whole milligram, you should have noticed something positive. Please do not increase it more without your doc’s OK.

I have heard of people such as you who are less than thrilled with the ativan, but they have good results with Paxil during the day, every day, and a bit of ativan at bedtime.

Good luck hun.

*edit* TossThat is very right.

Took 3 mg. klonopin for 1 month at bedtime. Can I subsitute ativan to taper off?

1 Comment

Did not take Klonopin long but did get severe withdrawal symptoms when stopped cold turkey. I ran out of klonopin but have alot of ativan left. I did not abuse ativan and seldom took them. However, took way too many klonopin. I currently experience loud ringing in my ears cannot fall asleep. My anxiety level is high. Can someone let me know about substituting ativan to get off of klonopin?

Answer:

klonopin and ativan are similar medicines and you can substitute one for one; if you need help you should talk with your psychiatrist or family doctor for a weaning schedule…..good luck

Answer:

Can I Drink Alcohol While Taking Ativan?
Both alcohol and AtivanĀ® (lorazepam) are central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants), which means they both can slow down brain activity. When combined, they can increase your risk for serious reactions. This is why, according to the Ativan prescribing information, drinking alcohol while on Ativan is not recommended. Additionally, for many people with mental illness, it is usually recommended that alcohol be avoided.

Ativan and Alcohol Side Effects
Drinking alcohol while taking Ativan may increase your risk of certain Ativan side effects, such as:

Drowsiness
Dizziness
Problems with coordination
Unusual behavior
Memory problems.

It may also slow both the heart and breathing, which can cause you to pass out, have difficulty breathing, or even lead to death.

You may also be more sensitive to the effects of alcohol if you are taking Ativan. You may not be able to safely drink as much alcohol as you were used to drinking in the past.

Ativan is approved to treat anxiety. Generally, it is best for people with mental illnesses to avoid drinking alcohol. Alcohol may worsen mental illness and is often a form of “self-medication.” Additionally, people with an alcohol abuse problem may be more likely to abuse Ativan.

Should I b worried about mixing Ativan and Zyprexa?

1 Comment

I was told by a doctor who wasent my psychiatrist, to take them a few hours apart, but I read that there bad to mix together. I took Ativan yesterday, over 24 hours ago. And I want to take my zyprexa tonight, its a daily med. Ive only taken Ativan twice.

Answer:

It’s definitely safe if it’s been 24 hours. If you’re wondering about taking them closer together, no one can answer that better than a pharmacist! They are SO smart, kind, and helpful.
You can look up “Pharmacies” in the Yellow Pages, and call a 24-hour pharmacy now. Good luck to you. :)

If I took an Ativan before i smoked weed, would anything bad happen?

2 Comments

Would anything bad happen, and would my slight, sometimes severe, anxieties be gone?

Answer:

Probably not.. Weed is weed. Theres nothing that can really stop the effects from happening. If your new to marijuana, give it a few times. I was the same way my first time. I would be paranoid when I smoked it.
If you get really paranoid you might want to try to smoke a bit less and just get a nice buzz.

will 1mg of ativan show up in my urine if i took it 4 days ago?

2 Comments

I took 1 ativan which isn’t prescribed to me 4 days ago. it was 1mg. I had no idea that that was something they test for in drug tests. My mom gave it to me for some anxiety i was having (she has a script for it). I’ve never taken it before so since it was a once time thing does anyone know if it will show up in my pee test that i has to take today?

Answer:

You will be fine. Even if the drug is not out of your system it is unlikely that levels would be detected unless the cutoff is very low.

I take clonazepam and lorazepam by prescription and have taken many tests before being hospitalized. I have rarely surpassed the 200 ng/ml level that is common for clinical tests. The cutoff is typically higher for employment and parole/probation tests.
