    I have been over all satisfied with this treatment. However, my concern is what happens if I quit taking it?

    I recently lost my wife. she passed last summer and I have been having a tough time dealing with it. My Doctor realized my depression and prescribed lorazepam and I only take it when the depression increases. I am only on my first refill, and each scip is only 20 pills with each refill( 0.5 mg ). It seems to work but I need to give it more time. The verdict is still out.

I felt very calm, more focused to get things done and not so scrabbled brain. Then it was ... Show Full Comment

I am prescribed an anxiety medication, a depression medication, both of which I take daily and if those dont seem to kick in I take a lorazapam. I only take it as needed once or twice a week usually& it works just fine. I was a little scared of becoming dependant on the drug because of family addiction history but ive been taking it a ...
