  • 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

  • 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

  • Use as needed after panic attack to sleep, use minimal dose (0.25-0.5mg only) and helps sleep, try not to use during day as it makes me very drowsy
