  • Reduces anxiety quickly. Helps alleviate insomnia. Available in many dosages, and pills are easily broken for half doses.

  • Lorazepam is great for immediate relief of panic attacks. However, I don't believe it is effective as a long term treatment plan. Tolerance develops quickly and the drug has a short half life.

  • Love it! It's pretty effective as a security blanket--I'm always sure to have it with me, but I rarely take it. Just knowing it's there and it's an option for a panic attack is really great.

  • Take the lowest dose possible; less side effects. I use it at night for sleep; if I keep to the lower dose I have no problem with being groggy in the morning

  • Didn't help much for severe episodes of anxiety. Also no side effects so I guess that's a plus. I'm 185lbs taking 1-2mg at a time. Everyone is different and I've heard good things but for me it just didn't cut it. Did help my appetite.

  • Don't be afraid to use it for a few weeks; it didn't help me as much as it could have, because I was afraid to use it every night. In the short-term, it appears to be safe

  • It can be habit forming and wd can be a pain. However when you need relief and have terrible anxiety it can be good. Also the brain fog sucks
