I have really bad anxiety and along w/breathing techniques that my Dr. perscribed I feel I'm finally getting control of my life again. I feel so normal, I forgot what it was like. I only take 0.5 mg / day when needed, which is about 5days/week.

Comment:
I started taking Lorazepam a month ago and have not noticed any difference in my nervousness. I did have some side effects when I first started the drug. I was like a Zombie in a foggy movie, I couldn't think either. So I went from taking .5mg twice a day to only .5mg at bedtime that helped with the side effects.

Comment:
I have been on this medication for 2 years, after I had the worst anxiety attack in my life. Since I have been on it I can drive without having a panic attack in traffic, I now don't have to worry about having to pull over to the side of the road anymore or wish for a police car to be near me. I do wonder what the long term ramifications are for using it for many years.
