Is it bad to take lorazepam three times to four times per week per episode basically

I’m asking regarding someone else.

To me it seems a bit much but tbh, I really don’t know…

Sorry can’t help you there as I’ve never taken it, maybe contact their pdoc if you’re concerned

Also there’s a family/friends forum

Yea they will probably ask their pdoc next week… I’m just curious now. Thought it was addictive. At that amount, but maybe not.

i used to take lorazepam daily but they got me off it in last psych ward i as in.

Was it difficult to come off? How long were withdrawals if you had them?

yea it was not easy… they tapered it and now i only take it when things get really bad and i need some help.

i don’t remember much anymore how long the withdrawals were but it was ok i think as long as you taper it and use less and less every day.

Thanks LekkerHondje, it is great that you don’t need it every day anymore.

At that rate, taken for long enough there is a good chance you will become dependent on them.
