Not long enough, for me anyway. Have you considered a longer acting benzo like valium or klonopin(clonazepam) I think it's good that you were started on a short acting benzo. I don't think people should be prescribed long acting benzo's straight away. If you don't think it's working well enough ask for one that works all day. Other wise you have to keep popping ativan maybe 3 times a day compared to once with another drug. good luck it can be difficult to find one that works well for you.
