Probably safe: But I suggest you consider starting CBT therapy to learn skills to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety. What you'll gain can serve you for a lifetime and you'll notice you need the Ativan (lorazepam) less and less - maybe not at all. It can take patience, but it's worth it. Mindfulness Meditation is also great for helping w/ anxiety.
