:confused: so question....does the ativan help with dizziness for most people? or just with anxiety??? i've been given the xanax for the vertigo related anxiety, but it does nothing for my dizzies. if it helps with both more than xanax, i would definitely like to switch and see. please let me know :)
[QUOTE=missy7777;3117445]For me, Ativan works on both dizziness and anxiety. The only side effect from this (for me) is that it makes me a little sleepy. That is why I only take 1/4 or 1/2 of a 0.5mg tablet. It takes the dizziness away and the anxiety but I don't feel like I have to go to sleep - I can continue working.

Ativan has been a lifesaver for my real bad blips when I can't just lay in bed all day long (I have 4 children!)

thank you for that info!:) i only take half .25mg xanax at night right now, and sometimes when i'm having a stressful day. but it does nothing for dizzies. it makes me a little groggy feeling, and almost like a hangover in the morning-but that might just be the vertigo--yuck! anyone else? it definitely is worth a shot?
