    Lorazepam for Anxiety disorders; Depression

    I only took Lorazepam for a few days and today only occasionally because I am better off now. The dosage varies well with viélen very strong. Where other 1mg achievements had to be achieved, I had to In my case take 2 mg to get a little calmer. When sleeping I rarely took them but under 3 mg I did not feel anything. When I took another 1mg pill after an hour, I was incredibly relaxing and finally fell asleep a few minutes later. For me and my doctor Lorazepam is next to Diazepam the best Medikamnet in anxiety disorders of all kinds and every depressive who is in a crisis for a few hours back to normal life brings back. SORRY and caution makes lorazepam and diazepam (even in small amounts) after a few weeks ahhängig. Although not as bad as one would take it already years, but still is easy to get away (just at high Dosiuerung) of these Medikamnete realtiv difficult and should therefore be gradually phased out. Despite these dangers, you can safely take these days, I’m glad that I have received this that they have not brought back to reality.

    Lorazepam for Grief coping; Depression

    My experiences with Lorazepam are very good, with one exception. I have no side effects. The only point is that there is a certain tolerance to the drug during long-term treatment, so that the dose must be increased.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Lorazepam for Anxiety and panic attacks; Depression

    Diagnosis: (severe) depression, anxiety and panic attacks 1st trial: Sertraline. Initially massive anxiety increase. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: anxiety, agitation, depersonalization / derealization, loss of libido, cocaine pain. Abandoned after a short time. 2nd trial: venlaflaxin. Very effective against panic attacks. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: same as with sertraline. Ingestion to date (225mg / day) 3. Simultaneous treatment with Lyrica. Very effective against internal states of tension, general anxiety and agitation. No influence on the depression. Side effects: fatigue, hunger (weight gain) and slight increase in depressive inertia. 4. Following treatment with quetiapine (Seroquel). Something calming, but no effect on depression or anxiety disorder. Side effects: Massive hunger attacks and severe tiredness. After about 8 weeks again discontinued. 5. Timely treatment with lithium. Strong antisuizidal, otherwise no influence. Side effects: tremor, weight gain and acne. Taking until today. 6. On top of that, Bupoprion (Etronil). Initially highly effective against depression. After a few weeks of action disappeared. No effect on anxiety disorder. Side effects: tremor, dry mouth and sleep disorders. Unplanned treatment success against nicotine addiction. 7. On the whole cocktail again on top: Lamotrigine. Strong effect against depression. No effect on anxiety disorders. Side effects: none. 8. For 7 days try with Methylphenidad (Ritalin). No effect, various side effects. 9. Discontinuation of Lyrica and Wellbutrin without visible consequences. 10th attempt with Nortrilen. Drug very effective against depression. Side effect: Dry mouth, hunger, sleep problems and high blood pressure. Libido can not be assessed due to concomitant use of venlaflaxin. Right now I do not care about the side effects of Nortrilen. After 2 years and various attempts, the first antidepressant, which is really antidepressant. After 2 years of immeasurable suffering, I am finally on the way to recovery. For a long time I hesitated to take an old antidepressant. With all my medicine cocktail, I simply lacked the belief that something could actually work. However, I can highly recommend it for resistance to therapy today. However, the whole chemistry does not replace psychotherapy, which is necessary for longer-term recovery. Some years ago, I could not imagine why anyone could commit suicide. I was taught in a painful way a better one. Hold on, even if it does not look like it at all. It’s actually over.

    Lorazepam for Depression

    Seroquel: The only relatively unpleasant side effect: Increased appetite = strong, rapid weight gain, which, however, has declined again after discontinuation. Therefore later change back to Venlafaxin.

    Lorazepam for Depression

    It helps me very well (anxiety disorder). I have the problem that I can not calm down and certainly not come to other thoughts when the fear is only there. I then had lorazepam prescribed about a month ago and take 2.5 mg, but only when needed and I’m completely satisfied and the thought that I have something that brings me back to the ground quickly is reassuring! Quickly after taking my body feels heavy and I realize that I’m not moving so fast. Before a visit to the dentist, where wisdom teeth were pulled me, I had previously discussed with my family doctor as I can dose the lorazepam or may. Then I took 2.5 mg the night before, slept well and took 5 mg 2 hours before the dentist appointment (that’s how it was discussed with the doctors). I took a companion with me, which turned out to be incredibly smart. I had to carry the stairs into the practice high and from the intervention (local prayers) and generally the whole day I know NOTHING anymore. Conclusion: Lorazepam yes, but with great caution.

    Side effects: Memory gaps; Fatigue

    Lorazepam for Depression

    Citalopram: Although taking this drug often caused sleepless nights (extreme reality-related nightmares), my condition improved noticeably. Although I was often irritable, but also happy and relaxed. Side effects: – strong mood swings – at night nightmares and panic attacks Mirtazapine: The use of this drug brought 11 days of ever-increasing drive and listlessness, as well as a persistent urge to suicide and self-injury. Side effects: – persistent fatigue – nausea / bloating – extreme worsening of the condition – aggressiveness / anger Laif900: This drug is herbal and I tolerate it very well, as it has no side effects. Anyway, I could not find any. Opipramol: This drug is intended for the night. Every half an hour before going to bed, I have to take 50mg of Opipramol. I realize that I am not convinced by this drug because I can not sleep well or sleep well. Side effects: – agitation – nausea Lorazepam: I should take this drug in case of internal restlessness. Half an hour after taking it, I am completely calm and relaxed. I could not find any side effects yet.

    Lorazepam for Anxiety disorders; Depression

    My Doc took me away from Citalopram and now I’m taking Trevilor for 1 week. For me, the initial side effects were hell !! Restlessness, panic attacks, perspiration, trembling, cramps, nausea, stomach ache, no appetite, restless legs, anxiety attacks, complete insomnia, etc .. Say all that is to be fought once came with power instead of disappearing !! The Doc thinks that unfortunately comes in the early days. To bridge this I get now Lorazepam for about 4 weeks, because it is cautioned because of the high addictiveness. I dread before the dose increase, because from Monday I should 75mg ret. Now I take another 2 * 37.5. And it should be further increased. But I try it for now.

    Side effects: Panic attacks; Unrest

    Lorazepam for Borderline; Depression

    Side effects, early onset, fatigue, fatigue occasionally eye cramps, weight gain, heartburn. I have never read the leaflets because I probably would not have taken the medicine. Among the antidepressants, after being still prescribed Tavor 2.5, because of the panic attacks. But the panic attacks are not side effects of the antidepressant drugs, because they had long before. In a wanted by me deposition of antidepressants, came suicidal thoughts, try. And to remedy the annoying heartburn, then added the drug Ulnor 20 mg. The dose has never been lowered. Sertraline 100mg, previously Zoloft. Mirtazapine 45mg, previously Remergil. Lorazepam = Tavor 2.5mg.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue

My liver values have been slightly elevated since taking the medication and must be constantly monitored.
