It is one of the weaker meds for anxiety. Xanax is better IMO

I'm just using it as needed. I get some pretty bad anxiety attacks, so if I feel one coming on I take one. I also was told I could dissolve it under my tounge for faster results?

That stuff is good for panic attacks, but you should only use it for a short period of time.

You can search the net and find countless horror stories.

Ask your doctor about Vistaril. Its not addictive and it works for some people.

Try to find something natural that helps. Sometimes a cold beer works wonders :)

Take it sparingly...

Try some over the counter Herbs like Valerian Root, or Eccanacia?

It is a Pharmacy Chemical it will erase your memory, it builds up in your system, and some people have been reported to experience extreme depression, suicidal thoughts, or murderous rages, either when on the chemical, or when withdrawing from it.

Just be careful...?

Bullshit. If someone is experiencing anxiety telling them that it doesn't exist is heartless.

I've only experienced it once in my life and it fucking sucked. I had 3 weeks of misery and bad dreams, and life sucked. I was going to go to my doctor and ask for some meds.

Fortunately I did get through it without anything, but to say it doesn't exist, FUCK YOU and your flowers.

Except of course when it is not in the mind, but purely somatic

Lorazepam (or any benzodiazepines) are perhaps not perfect. But they do improve quality of life for many people.

A few years ago I had some hormone problems which caused me to have several panic attacks each day. I tried my best to control my mind, but nothing helped.

Only Valium would make the panic attacks stop, but I didn't care for the drugged up feeling.

Good news is that I got my hormone levels correct and the panic attacks went away.

It really depends on what is causing anxiety/panic. General everyday anxiety CAN be controlled without meds. I think the term for this is Generalized Anxiety.

I would seriously avoid that as it is quite addictive. What's worse, anxious or bat-shit crazy?

Re: Anybody have expierence with Lorazepam?
oh god yes a subject i know real well.. im on some percs and tabs right now drinking a few beers...so yeah youll feel better that is the high. people claim oh yeah it takes it away, thats because you get a buzz, of course xanax is better specially the 2 mg poles. but you can get fat on xanax. when i take it this is how it goes.. it hits you in about 10 or 15 minutes lasts about 30 minutes.. then you go eat everything in the house lol!!!

oh yeah by the way i only do pharms for fun, but your lors diazs and barbs are all basically the same. if your using as you should yes it will help but remember that is because you are getting high!!!

now once you realize your addicted to them and if you drink with them you will black the hell out.. this is the best advice youll get on here about this post,

My panic and anxiety attacks completely stopped when I got a divorce. I'm not even kidding lol!

You have to remove the stress from your life.

As for controlling it... Cognitive therapy and Xanax were the only things that worked for me.

Medication is iffy, just don't take too much.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4260552


Seen this many times... it is common to the entire class of meds called Benzodiazepines (partial list of class = Librium, Valium/Diazepam, Xanax/Alprazolam, Ativan/Lorazepam, Alepam/Oxazepam, Prasepine/Centrax/Prazepam, Tranxene/Clorazepate, Halcion/Triazolam, Versed/Midazolam)

Versed is the mother of all Benzo's - insanely fast acting, and very short lived...6 hours of valium stupor packed into 10-15 minutes of catatonia. It is used by paramedics to temporarily paralyze a person for airway intubation and other traumatic procedures in rescue work. It causes near-total short term amnesia... when a person who's been in an accident says they can't recall what they were doing, or what happened leading up to the crash, believe them if they were given this shit!

If that doesn't tell you how damaging long-term use of benzo's is, I don't know how to explain it.

Just .5 MG. I don't need a high MG dosage. The .5 MG knocks the edge off the anxiety attack. Also, the .5 MG shouldn't do much withdrawl damage if/when I decide to get off it.

I think what you posted is worst case scenario. People that are taking 3 MG or 4 MG a day could get this kind of withdrawal. I don't think .5 MG or 1 MG will do much of anything in a withdrawal.

Re: Anybody have expierence with Lorazepam?
Let me just suggest another natural anxiety helper for those who are (rightly) cautious about benzos. Passionflower- you can get it at GNC. It works really well, and doesn't give you that benzo groggy aftereffect. Be really careful with the benzos if you are at all disposed to depression or any issue on the bipolar scale. They can do you much harm if you are.
