Well I went to the doctor today and she recommended I start taking 0.5 tablet of Lorazepam when I feel I need it, twice a day. She said to first try half a tablet and see if that's enough. In the meantime, I am supposed to meet with a mental health clinic to come up with a more permanent plan.
I went home and felt the anxiety building, so I took 1/2 a 0.5mg tablet. Within an hour I was napping. I needed the rest, but when I woke up, I felt numb and as if I was in a bubble.
5 hours later, another attack started. I tried waiting it out because I didn't want to take too much too soon, but I eventually took the other half of the tablet. Again I was sleeping soon after. I only slept 30 mins, but now I feel like I can't keep my eyes open.
Is this a typical reaction? If I take a full 0.5mg tablet, will the anti-anxiety effects last longer? Or will I turn in to Sleeping Beauty?
