Anyone?

Let me know if anyone has taken Ativan so I'm not alone I'm constantly scared about all the things I've read about it and wish I never went on its only been about a month on but when I don't take it I get more anxiety my doctor said I wasn't withdrawing and that I needed 1mg more he only gave me 12 of them but now I'm almost done and don't know what to do cause he's not giving me anymore and I don't even want to take more someone help

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 anxiety....so Ativan works best for me.
