    I have taken many Anxiety medications, But Ativan worked the best for me, Like any medication it effects people differently, But I was on Xanax for a while, And it made me too high to do anything, Ativan still made me a little loopy, But I could function.

    I used to be on Xanax to prevent panic attacks but it affected me so much I couldn't even be in control of a car, so they put me on this to "relax with a lesser imparing effect" and....
