  • 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

  • Very helpful- just be aware of the withdrawal symptoms, and cautious about drinking. Doctors give that warning all the time, but with Benzos alcohol REALLY affects you differently.

  • Side effects are minimal. I heard there could be withdrawals but I never felt that. I only use it when I can't shut my brain off at night. I also used it when I was going through chemotherapy as it also works for battling nausea.
