Why?: It is much healthier to treat anxiety without pharmaceuticals. Physical activity like walking or jogging, hobbies like knitting, reading, meditating, yoga, watching a movie, cleaning the house and generally staying busy will take your mind off the upcoming trip. You should not drive or drink alcohol when you take Ativan (lorazepam) - save it for the flight!
