    Ativan (Lorazepam)


    I just have a question to anyone who knows something about the drug ativan(lorazepam). I've been taking effexor XR and I've also been prescribed lorazepam for use when needed. I understand the addiction related to this type of medication, and I'm wondering what kind of amount is considered addictive. Of course it varies for each person, but say I was taking 1mg a few times a week. I mean, I can take up to 2mg a day, but I don't. I don't even take it every day, just a couple of times a week, maybe 4 times at most. Should I be worried?

    Be careful with it. Benzos(the family of drugs that Ativan is in) can creep up on you. It is easy to take a "chill pill" when things get stressful. Benzos are only prescribed for very short periods of time. Read the warning pamphlet that comes with the pills. Be very careful.
