lorazepam getting a rep for dependece

Posted by rjlockhart37 on September 5, 2014, at 22:02:33

i've been on ativan many years ago....2mg X 3 daily.....but it was mainly because i had panic attacks in high school around people, thats why the dose was modereate....

but i've read on the's saying it's a "high potency" benzodiapine....

im not trying to be sarcastic, but i always Xanax was the main one for depedence and abuse, it has a short half life and does give a better mood feeling than ativan, ativan just kinda sedates you, relaxed, laid back, calm.....xanax kinda increases the mood and relives anxiety.....

my old pdoc said lorazepam was more dependece causing than xanax.....why?? it doesnt really give a high like xanax does......just a sedation relax feeling


and for clonazepam, thats the most widely used benzo today.....but it made me depressed....i took 2mg and it made just ughhhh....low mood, low anxiety, low energy, but thats for does work vary well for panic attacks.....

comparison between benzos???

not a scholar but understand distress.....
