This medication is great for sudden panic attacks, it works in minutes. I get anxious on airplanes and in large crowds and this drug eases my mind. Although, be careful as it is very addictive.

I have heard from many people I know that Ativan is a miracle drug for people with anxiety problems. I, on the other hand, can't stand it. I may be the exception to the rule, but all it did for me was make me feel like I drank a 6 pack of beer.

I took it for the first time when I went out with friends. I was feeling extremely nervous and anxious. I did start to loosen up, but then I just fealt really drunk. When my husband and I left, I was driving. It started to effect me so bad I had to pull over and let him drive.

There weren't any other bad side effects. So I guess if you're ok with feeling drunk, then it might be good for you. I want to add that Ativan does not do that to my friend who also takes it. It works fine for her.

Oh yes, and my doctor highly stressed the fact that Ativan is a highly abused and addictive drug. Yet another reason I don't feel so great about taking it again.

When I was initially diagnosed with a chronic illness (severe pan-ulcerative colitis) after its dramatic sudden onset, I spent several months in a few different hospitals while struggling to get the disease under control. At times I became very depressed at my bleak outlook and even experienced a panic attack or 2 after some awful encounters I had in one hospital in particular. At certain times I was given Ativan to calm me down, & to relax me when I was extremely worked up and distraught. I was given the drug intravenously and it worked amazingly. Within minutes I was at ease and experiencing a drug-like high. I was also given the drug while I was being transferred to different hospitals in order to mildly sedate me for my comfort.

The drug definitely does what it's supposed to do (and does it well), but I would imagine that it could be become EXTREMELY addictive if taken on a regular basis. It's not something to take unless you REALLY need it.
