Advice please

So I have had my 15mg of mirtzipine raised to 30mg. It's been a few months and I was still feeling a bit off. I was told by my dr that I could take a second dose of my .5mg of lorazepam. Well that was a few weeks ago and I just had the nerve to finally do it. I guess I give myself more anxiety with the should I or shouldn't I. After taking second dose which I took about 8 hours later I didn't feel too much of a difference. Can anyone offer advice to if just starting a second dose, does it take awhile like a raised med? Any info I appreciate. Thank you.

  • What are the feelings your feeling? You said your feeling off? Maybe I have a solution that doesn't involve the medications your on which brings me to my next question what are you taking them for if you dont mind me asking

  • I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression years ago. I had been on mirtazapine 15mg and raised to 30mg along with .5 mg of lorazepam that had also been raised to twice a day. I had started on the 30mg of mirtzipine a few months ago because I was scared to take second pill during day. They don't make me sleepy nut my own anxiety was givibg me more anxiety about taking it. Anyway i had been having alot of stress, temsion, tightness in my back, neck, shoulders and throat. I took thr second pill and i guesz i was again expecting fast results. I did feel a little of the tension ease. Does it take a week or So? Am I just wishing for quick results like now? Sorry for all the questions but I'm a wimp when it comes to meds😔

  • I'm on 20 mg citalopram and I also take 2.5 mg valium when needed I feel like I'm super at ease when I take the valium calms me right down

  • Valium and xanax are the best remedies when it comes to medications for anxiety but doctors dont like prescribing them as they are addictive
