As I posted last night I've been having trouble getting to see a psychiatrist. I've managed to see a psychologist. She told me to quit Ativan because it's addictive. My friend also told me after a while it doesn't work any more. I went 2 days w/out the Ativan and was miserable. I didn't even go to work today. I gave in and just took a pill and I'm feeling much better. I'm going to call my general doctor and ask him to prescribe a different medication rather than the Ativan (Lorazepam) or the Clonazepam which he prescribed for me. My friend suggested Zoloft, another friend suggested Lexapro. I'll try any med to replace the Ativan. I feel that right now I need to stay on some kind of med so that I can cope with life: not lose my job, take care of myself, start to function and get my life back. I know different meds work in different ways but please tell me about your experience.
