> I've just started taking lorazapam for anxiety. I'm worried about accidental overdose. Does anyone know how likily that may happen? How much could I take before I might have to worrie about phycological addiction or overdose?

James here....

In this class of drugs overdose leading to death
is not, in general, possible. This is why they are used instead of other meds for anxiety. As to addiction, I can't say at what dose this happens.
I have been taking 60 1 mg tabs every 4 months for years, generally 1mg/day and I don't go more than 3 days running because it effects my memory.
My doc gave me some guidelines with this med (like how much was too much, and to call if I needed to take more than indicated) please make your conserns known to your doc, too. Remember that I am telling you what I do, which may not work for you. I think talking to your doc will help you with your conserns.
