Generica Posted March 31, 2009 Share Posted March 31, 2009 In the past I've been given valium for my anxiety and panic attacks, PRN only, 5-10mg. Recently my gp prescribed me ativan instead. It does nothing for anxiety or panic at 1mg, I don't even feel like I've 'taken' anything. Taking 2mg however sends me into a half asleep stupor, I'm useless, which defeats the purpose of taking something so that I can cope in the world. Valium seems to solve the panic/anxiety while letting me function, even at up to 20mg which I've been given while hospitalized. Ativan seems a bit of a weird med for me. I thought all benzos would have been roughly the same in their effect? A case of YMMV perhaps? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
