Hi. I'm new to the benzo area as I've been very hesitant to take a benzo because of the risk of tolerance and dependence. I went to see my doctor today because of the return of panic attacks. I asked her about increasing my Lexapro back to 20mg like before and she said no because it would make me manicy. So, instead she gave me Ativan .5mg three times a day. I took my first Ativan around 1 or 1:15. Now I'm feeling very upset, and I'm not sure if it's the ativan messing with my head (Klonopin did), or "leftovers" from the event of the day. I really don't like the idea of taking benzos in the first place.
