I know they are habit forming/addictive. I have been taking Ativan for over a year. In September I was hospitalized due to a bad drug reaction that left me traumatized and my usage increased. I swear, I never in my life thought I would be in this situation. My dad is an alcoholic and I promised myself I would never get addicted to anything, but the anxiety is really bad and I am non-functional without the Ativan. How much is too much? I have tried almost all the A/Ds and I am so sensitive that only Remeron was tolerated and it is not strong enough to manage my anxiety and I find I still need Ativan. I am not sure what to do. I think I may be one of those forever users, but it breaks my heart to think that, plus it adds to my anxiety. I need to have a new point of view that it is o.k. to take this drug. I want to be around to watch my children grow up, but I don't want them thinking poorly of their mom. Any comments?
