I took Lorazepam for a while. In my case it turned out it wasn't panic attacks after all but a hyperactive adrenal gland. But I'll tell you what. The first time it happened I thought I was either dying of a heart attack or that maybe somebody slipped something in my drink. It's scary for sure.

The problem with that class of drugs (Benzodiazepines) is that eventually you need more and more to reach the same level of affect. They are highly addictive and you can't just stop taking them or you risk serious seizures and severe drops in blood pressure that could be fatal so be careful and follow doctors orders with it.

I got to the point where I was chewing it like candy. So they switched me over to Klonopin. I still take a small maintenance dose of that but it's efffectiveness is not what it once was. I'm actually trying to slowly wean myself off of it. If I'm going to have the feelings anyway then I don't want to be filling my body with some synthetic chemical that isn't really doing much for me.

But I know other people that have been taking the Lorezepam in a small dose for years and it works wonders for them so I guess in part it's an individual thing.

Good luck with it Dark and please keep us posted.

Thanks for sharing smallie, I hope to treat the root of the problem or at worst switch over to a daily use type medication.

I don't get addicted to things, except food. Interestingly enough, I took a Klonopin my boss gave me one day, he is on that stuff and has been for a long time. Like you said it requires more and more and more. Anyways took the Klonopin and I felt like it made things worse. It got my heart racing, and sent me into a near panic attack. I'll never touch Klonopin again.

My doctor when he proscribed Lorazopam told me it was a daily use type medication. I would take one every morning, did that for 6 months. Made me feel great all day lol.

Im going in to see the doc today. They may want to put me on zoloft. I think I may have a form of OCD that is causing this stuff

Lorazepam Side Effects:

Drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, headache, nausea, blurred vision, change in sexual interest/ability, constipation, heartburn, or change in appetite may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

The change in appetite is the one I need lol. Luckily the other side effects never hit me. I just got the good one.

Good for you Rick glad you didn't get them other side effects  ~sweat  I was lucky and didn't get too many of the side effects from my Chemo and radiation treatment. Other than numb feet... loos of appetite..weakness and a few more. I'm still holding my weight at around 191 pounds since I came off the feeding tube about a year ago.

I'm glad to see that folks are sticking with this.

Very slow improvements on my part, but there are improvements. I'm lifting light weights again several days a week. Trying to get around any injuries due to my lack of physical activity for almost three years. We'll see.

Core work, core work, core work.

When I retired, I looked like Tarzan. 6'1'' and 240 lbs. of muscle. Ten years, 6 operations, nursing home stays, broken back, yada, yada. Today, 5'8" and 265lbs. I now look like Jackie Gleason. I am fortunate to afford a personal trainer twice a week. She has me able to walk again. I'm losing weight----slowly. I started at 285 over 2 years ago. I use the trainer because she has a degree in how muscles work together. She concentrated on the muscles I needed to walk and keep my balance. The doctors said I wouldn't be able to walk again and I would die within 3 years. My warranty expired last year and I'm still here. My upper body strength is back to my normal and I've lost 10 inches around my waist. DON'T LET PEOPLE TELL YOU YOU'RE SCREWED AND CAN'T GET BETTER!

I AM screwed. But I'm too hard-headed to give in.
