Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** am reading your question and will be back with you ASAP.
It isn't illegal anywhere in the United States to prescribe Ativan (lorazepam). However, many practitioners will not write a prescription for it because it does have a potential for addiction and was only ever meant to be used for 2-3 weeks tops. Today prescribers usually write for one of the SSRI drugs that are thought to be a lot safer for long term use.
Lorazepam also has drug reactions with venlafaxine, hydrochlothiazide, and trazodone.
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but please don't shoot the messenger ;-(
Sorry, but there seems to be a payment failure. Once that is corrected, I will be happy to speak to you on the telephone.
