Advice & Tips: I only take it when necessary now. Before last relapse, i took it once in morning with my other meds. I have heard that its very addicting, so be careful! When I was hospitalized due to relapse, the doc at hospital kept pumping me with IV form and i became addicted. I was a zombie, wanted to sleep all the time, very confused and out of it. went to oral when i got home and slowly weaned off to where i only use it as needed.

Advice & Tips: Attivan, is a major plus for me. The pill dissolves quickly in the mouth and the time of initial effect is such (10 - 15 min. ) that I can take a dose and feel calm or I can take what is needed to stop a seizure. The calming effect is effective since I seize and my muscles tense . The impact on my life has ben great because of the fact that I now have a rescue mdication that I can trust and believe will accomplish what I want it to do.

Advice & Tips: Ativan has a very serene, calming affect on the nervous system. Since the drug has such an affect I only take the prescription drug when needful. Other benefits from the drug is that it allows the nervous system to do its job and at the same time if you are in pain, you will experience some relief. The impact of this drug on my life is expotential. I need the rescue medication as well as the relief from pain.
