Sooo I need Ativan to help me with the crash I get from my Zoloft (it works wonderfully during the day and is a great help but then it wears off or something and all my symptoms come rushing back only worse and I will physically tremble, almost sliced up my leg because of it)
Unfortunately I realized I also need Ativan to help me sleep at night. I was hoping Abilify could act as a replacement, but it can’t. My insomnia is back, as well as the constant waking up to every little thing. Mild PTSD symptoms though, so that’s good, but with the Ativan I had none.
Now the problem is I’m only supposed to take 1 mg a day, and I don’t want to take more than 1 mg a day because benzos and addiction and whatnot. But really I need 2 a day, until I’m stable on the Zoloft. And I really have no idea what to do about night time, I feel sort of hopeless there. Benzos have been the only thing that can get me through it as of yet. (And I’ve tried all manner of sleep aids, natural and unnatural.)
Also I’m mildly concerned my Zoloft is getting less effective? Because it used to wear off after 5, 6 hours but now it wears off in half that time. I’m not sure what to do about this, I guess I’m not on the proper dosage of it yet. (I’m only on 75 mg and from what I’ve seen typical dosage is 100-150.)
Aside from all that though I’m doing quite well so this is really just me griping, haha. I’ve been genuinely happy for the these past few days for the first time in a month, I’m starting to regain interest in actually doing things for fun, and yada yada the list of improvements continues. Anyways anyone have any advice for me?
