I was prescribed ativan. 5 mg three times a day to help stabilize my anxiety
and mood. I honestly feel fine all month except right before my period which is now. The anxiety and sadness is just too much to handle, so the ativan was prescribed. Except I'm anxious thinking about becoming addicted to it or the side effects from it to effectively do my job. I called the pharmacist and he said I could start with.25 2 times a day. What are your thoughts?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: The anxiety started in march, and got worse and worse and worse utility may when I started having panic
attacks and feelings of doom and crying uncontrollably. I was started on effexor. And went into an intensive outpatient program for anxiety and depression.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: I was previously on effexor and Trazodone for 8 years prior to getting pregnant. Then went completely off effexor and down to 25mg trazodone. Was completely fine during all pregnancy and at 9 months most partum it all went down hill
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Psychologist about your situation and then connect you two.
