  • I take it McKay...every day! Well mines the generic version...Lorazapam. If it's giving you more anxiety...tell your doctor to give you Proponal or something else. Ativan gives my sister more anxiety too so she takes proponol. That works for her, I've tried that and that gives me more Ativan works best for me.
