Customer Question

I ha have GAD, along with panic attacks. I'm taking lorazepam 1g 3 times a day. I have been taking it for 4 months. It no longer works unless I double or triple the does. This has been the only medication that has worked for me. It only lasts 1 hour to
an hour and a half. I was wondering if there was something that was more potent and lasted longer.
