Pain In Back If Head Day After Taking Ativan
Brief random pains in the back if head? I have allergies, am taking ativan and toprol (metoprolol) xl.
I"ve been on ativan (lorazepam) 2mg for 10 yrs. I am experiencing major hair loss. If I stop taking it, will my hair grow back or is the hair loss irreversible?
Ativan (lorazepam) & hair loss?: Hair loss has been associated with Ativan (lorazepam) use, but the frequency is unknown. I'd be wondering about additional possible causes in your case -- like ongoing anxiety & stress that may have made your doctor prescribe Ativan (lorazepam) in the first place? Have you resolved these issues? How about your diet? Are you getting necessary nutrients? Has your thyroid function been checked recently? See your doctor. ...Read more
Well its day 7 from my switch to ativan from klonopin (clonazepam) only thing I sweat easy and a little anxiety not bad and swimmy headed butholding strong normal?
Possibly: Without knowledge of the dosing and frequency of the Ativan as it compares to prior use of Klonopin (clonazepam) as well as other (or lack thereof) health conditions, it's difficult to comment on whether or not the symptoms are consistent with mild benzodiazepine withdrawal, an underlying mental health condition and/or something else altogether. Safe switching from Klonopin (clonazepam) to Ativan requires doctor guidance. ...Read more

I slept off and on last night, yesterday I had a horrible anxiety attack that lasted all day. Took. 5 ativan (lorazepam) at 730 8pm and another at 3am. Could that be why I'm so tired? Heads full and heavy. Dizzy
High anxiety: Ativan (lorazepam) 1 mg last night, especially if not used to it, could be be part of your fatigue. But main cause is likely lack of restful sleep and stress from severe anxiety. Do let prescribing doctor know about bad night/anxiety. There are more effective medications to block anxiety attacks. Consider therapy for relaxation strategies and insight. Hope this helps. ...Read more

So would it make sense to come off ativan and go on skelaxin (metaxalone)? I don't feel anxiety in my head. I feel insane tension in my body
I understand your distress.
Ativan helps with anxiety and tension.
“Insane tension in the body” indicates insufficient dose of Ativan, (lorazepam) lack of resolution of stresses of relationship, marriage, separation, work and finances or new stressors in life at this time.
Skelaxin can cause nervousness or irritability.

The side effects of lexapro (escitalopram) are safe right? I'm not in any danger? Is it okay to take. 5 mg of ativan while on it? My head has funny pressure it sucks
Generally, yes: Lexapro (escitalopram) often has early side effects which should disappear over the next few weeks. If any of the symptoms you are feeling in your head become severe, call your doc. The Ativan. 5mg is fine, assuming that your doc prescribed it and knows that you are taking it. ...Read more
Feeling kinda swimmy headed I don't know i'f it's because the change from my klonopin (clonazepam) I been on for years to ativan or vertigo? Just dizzy withdrawa?
K withdrawal effects:
you should not stop taking Klonopin (clonazepam) abruptly. Because Klonopin (clonazepam) can cause dependency issues. You can reduce the symptoms you feel during withdrawal by slowly tapering off of Klonopin (clonazepam) over time.
Possible symptoms of Klonopin (clonazepam) withdrawal:
tremors or uncontro. ...Read more

Costochondritis for a month. Have had heart, lungs and blood clots ruled out. On Motrin and ativan (lorazepam).Been having weird head pains for a week is it the meds?

It should not: Ativan is lorazepam. It is a variant of valium. It is a calming agent and muscle relaxant. Eye pressure may be due to glaucoma that can be made worse with certain medications. However, I am not aware of Ativan being one of those medications. You need to consult your eye specialist. ...Read more
Can I take same methionine for my depression like my psychiatrist suggested if I'm already taking inositol, ativan, and minocin (minocycline) for my skin?
Yes, alt tx: These are alternative 'natural' remedies for depression. My experience is that they are only marginally effective alone and require multiple combinations of natural compounds to equal a standard antidepressant. The cost of all the 'natural' ingredients is often more than most meds and I wouldn't necessarily assume that they are any safer as there is no fda regulation of these 'supplements'. ...Read more
My dr recently switched me from ativan to klonopin (clonazepam) for anxiety. I have to take a red eye this week and would prefer to use ativan (more sedating). How long do I have to wait after taking the klonopin (clonazepam) before that would be ok?
Would 1 mg of ativan be about equal to 1 mg of klonopin (clonazepam). Keeping in mind the klonopin (clonazepam) is lowered by 600mg of tegretol by about 30%?

I think someone is mind controlling me so I can't sleep or is this a symptom of med withdrawal like geodon, (ziprasidone) trazodone, ativan. Mind control?
Mind Control: It is possibly a withdrawal symptom but not necessarily. Please contact your prescribing doctor immediately to learn what is causing your thinking to be distorted. I wish you the best. ...Read more

Ok so I'm on my second day back on clonazepam 2mg I switched from ativan (lorazepam) 6mg snd pulse is low it's 65 should I be worried?
Treating Anxiety: These drugs are so similar there will be no discernible difference. The side effects will be exactly the same. And, remember these drugs are not curing or preventing anxiety. You need a fully different approach to do that. These drugs are sedatives. They do not prevent or cure anxiety. ...Read more

It is safe: As long as not doing this regularly. But you should not drive or participate in any potentially dangerous activities while taking Ativan (lorazepam).

I took. 5 mg of klonopin (clonazepam) at 8am and it didn't seem to agree with me, how long do I have to wait to go back to the 1 mg Ativan?
Decreasing prn meds due to all the meds I take for back issues. Is l-theanine a good substitute for ativan (lorazepam) for anxiety? How effective is it?
Complex situation: I don't know what dose of Lorazepam you are on or how long you've been on it. I would not however utilize l-theanine as a substitute for lorazepam. You would first have to gradually, and I mean very gradually taper down the dose of Lorazepam under the supervision of your prescribing physician. L-theanine has shown to be as effective as Lorazepam in some studies. However, it does not block Lorazepam withdrawal. After you were to withdraw from the lorazepam, your doctor would some point introduce the other over-the-counter substance to see if it would help in terms of your anxiety. ...Read more
