    I take this in conjunction with lexapro. I only use lorazepam as needed for panic attacks. It takes a full 2 hours to work, but it has never failed to reduce the symptoms of anxiety. Do not take with sleeping pills, alcohol, or NSAIDs. Read all drug interactions before taking any medication. Do not depend on your doctor to tell you everything.

    I was given a 2 week cycle to take for bad anxiety. U wasn't warned about how badly alcohol would react with the drug. I had one single measure of jack Daniels and coke and the next thing I know is that I am laying in my bed with the paramedics by my side sticking pads on me 24 hours after I had the one drink..... I had gone home from the pub as the alcohol reacted extremely badly with the dru ... Show Full Comment
