Yes if: This is the way your doctor has prescribed you your treatment, like Paxil (paroxetine) to be taken on a daily basis and Lorazepam 0.5 mg once a day as needed for anxiety. To the opposite, if u take medications on ur own, u are self-medications yourself and, this at ur own risk. The best for u is to get back to ur prescribing doc, tell her/him ur symptoms & ask 4 clarification or readjustment of ur treatment.

Yes, no problem: Paxil (paroxetine) may reduce your anxiety so that you'll be able to cut back on the lorazepam in the future.
