Customer Question

Hi. I am a 19 year old female. I suffer from very bad anxiety. I had an anxiety attack tonight and STL have not been able to calm down. I took .5 milligrams of lorazepam to calm down, but it's not working. Can I take another one? What will happen? I am also experiencing numbness in my whole body. Everywhere I touch I can feel it, it just feels numb. When should I worry about this? How will I know if it's just the anxiety causing this numbness? Thank you for responding.
