> Possibly. Do you have any other symptoms at the moment apart from anxiety? Why was the Ativan prescribed? How bad was your anxiety before the benzo was first prescribed? Why were the APs prescribed?

ANSWER: I prescibed ativan b/c of my anxiety. The doctor loaded drugs for every symptom. I still remember him saying we will just try everything until something works. UGH. The anger I feel. My anxiety was not really bad but they wanted to make me feel better. My anxiety while on the drugs and coming off them are 10 times worse then pre-benzo.

I was prescibed the AP's b/c of hearing voices but come to know the other drugs I was on were causing this. I only heard voices once or twice. I don't know the other reasons I was on the AP. They sadi do you want to try it and I said yes. I asked about side effects and they said there were none. Then I remember signing a paper. I didn't even question it. The drugs made me like a zombie. I feel so betrayed.

Answer: I want to see a doctor to check a physical and find someone I like and trust.

I have found nothing that really helps and that is why I feel so lost.

ANSWER: I will have to contact Larry. How come you quit school? Will you go back? I hope so. You are a great person for med advice.
