so.....ive been taking 2 mg of Ativan for YEARS at night. My pdoc had allowed me to start taking 2 mg (spread out and not all at obe time) during the day. I was taking it as needed. When i did take it it made me very sleepy. So i havent taken it during the day, even though i had anxiety. This same pdoc had previously had me on 2,400 mg of gabapentin EVERY DAY AND had me on the 2 mg of ativan at night. Last WEEK I called my pdoc to ask whether i could take a smaller dose of the gabapentin during the day instead of the Ativan. I never heard back from her until. TONIGHT. I told her that i had been to my primary dr today for other reasons and that she had given me an rx for 600 of the gabapentin once a day in place of the ativan. My pdoc got REALLLY nasty with me and said “you cant go between providers like this and you can have one or the other. I will need to have a face to face with you to discuss what you want to do”. So, guys, im not really sure what to do because i am VERY AFRAID of benzo withdrawals. Im only taking 2 mg at night. I am very upset and worries. What should i do? I would like to ditch this psych dr. I am reading about Ativan. I should never have been on it for more than a few months. I have been on it for YEARS!!!!!!i am really scared. And tomorrow is my birthday.
So I went to the ER last night, and I really wish I had not gone. They didn’t even do anything for me and give me a CAT scan. They thought I couldn’t breathe and wanted to make sure I was not the throwing a blood clot are having a stroke or whatever. So I sat there for hours and hours even after I told them what my problem was and that I needed help. The only thing that they did do for me...
my something is this:i bought a bed frame for a bigger bed for my new room. I also bought the bedspread and sheets. I still need to buy a mattress but I don’t have money to buy everything at once. I’m in no particular rush. I’m happy to buy things as I can afford them. It’s kinda nice. Your turn !!
