Anxiety: generally Ativan (lorazepam) should not be taken more that 3-4 times per day. You should always talk to your doctor if you are feeling more anxious or need to take more of the medication.

It depends: Honestly,I don't feel comfortable giving you an answer that your prescribing physician may not agree with or feel comfortable with you increasing your dosing to.You really should probably talk to him/her as it is their license on the line and they know and understand your whole background much better than I or my fellow colleagues do.They may help decide you need to increase the frequency of dose
