brokenchina Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 Hey everyone, A few days ago my psychiatrist talked about putting me on lorazepam. She said it'll be taken "as needed", so not daily, just when I'm having a really hard time with anxiety. I'm not sure of the dosage yet as I haven't seen the prescription, but I'm kind of worried about it. I'm nearly 17 years old and my mother says I was on lorazepam when I was maybe 10 or 11 (though I don't really remember it...) I've heard about all the addictive/tolerance properties and how potent it is, etc., and in my untreated anxiety I can't help but feel pretty worried about it... As a quick background, I was diagnosed with bipolar over the summer and was put on Wellbutrin and Abilify while in the hospital. So I couldn't be on anything for my anxiety and the Wellbutrin--as it's know to--made it worse. So now I'm having to go back on a stronger medicine for my anxiety now that I'm just taking lithium for the bipolar symptoms and the Wellbutrin was stopped a couple of weeks ago. (And the Abilify about a month ago.) So, yeah, essentially I'm just feeling worried about it. I've read about it and stuff but haven't really heard more anecdotal things about it so I was wondering if you guys could tell me about your experiences with it? Like I said, I've been on it before but I was, like, 10, so I don't remember any of it. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
