Taking Ativan

So I take Ativan for my anxiety and have only been taking 3 a day. Once in the morning and twice at night. Well, I took two more than usual and cannot fall asleep and the fn voices are hounding me about an accidental OD and my whole family is not who they say they are and I’m juggling this swollen uvula and am very confused and scared. I don’t know which way is up and just feel dumb for listening to the voices. I need to sleep, I have important appointment tomorrow and can’t be late.

Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine and it makes you hard to think or analyze. Long term use of it can cause dementia.

I finally fell asleep. I won’t be taking the extra two tonight. I slept all day.
