I was prescribed ativan (lorazepam) for anxiety. The last 3 times I've taken it I've had worse anxiety attacks and have been aggressive. Why is this happening?

Ativan (lorazepam) Side Effect. This sounds like a paradoxical or unexpected reaction to your ativan (lorazepam). I would first advise that you stop taking this drug and get back to your mental health provider. You may need something from a different class of drugs to treat your anxiety rather than this ativan (lorazepam).
