koa Posted April 15, 2012 Share Posted April 15, 2012 My doctor prescribed me enough ativan to take a 1mg pill once a day every month... Well first of all I don't really need ativan every day. Secondly, I have found that when I take one milligram as prescribed it has almost no effect on me that I notice. I was prescribed 2 mg ativan pills in the past by a different doctor, but this doctor feels that 1 mg should be enough for me. So, I guess I have to admit that I take the drug differently than prescribed. I don't take it every night, but when I do I tend to take two or three one milligram pills (2-3mg), because this is the dosage at which I feel that the drug is working. What are the risks of disobeying my doctor's orders? Is this considered an abuse? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
