Ativan(Lorazepam) is the only drug I have found that helps to reduce body wide nerve pain from advanced fibromyalgia and i have no side effects- except a bit sleepy at times. But the doctors I have seen will not prescribe more than a few pills for short term use as they say it is highly addictive. (More addictive than the sleeping pills, or anti depressants?) Anyway I cannot get any for on going use. Has anyone in Canada figured this out?

Hi Jim K.,
While taking Lorazepam, have you (or do you) take any other meds?
I'm on Cymbalta, Lamotrigine, and Lyrica which only take the edge off. Am desperate for relief, but don't know if experimenting with Lorazepam should be done after weaning off of those, first.
Your thoughts? Thank you, Zel

I have very intense nerve pain from a long period of spinal stenosis on the L-5 nerve root. A foraminotomy didn't help and neither did a lumbar fusion. after a year of progression through oxycontin, gabapentin, lyrica and cymbalta. I found, with the support of my GP and my own experimentation, that four 1mg doses of lorazepam throughout the day gave me about 80% or more total relief from the nerve pain with no side effects to date. I am delighted.

I am a 39 year old female with serious nerve pain radiating from my spine - shoulder blade - rt arm - rt chest and often up my neck.
I've spent 1000's and 1000's on different treatments, take a lot of vit's, am active and exercise and still suffer -I've tried many meds - and Lorazapam hands down is the most effective - I take just .5 before bed - pain is gone is about 1 hr and I sleep through the night - my Dr although has had me use every med under the sun, including narcotics -which are barely effective but make me feel terrible - is hesitant to prescribe lorazapam - crazy really!!! I dont use it during the day - I use Baclofen (Muscle relaxor) which is 'helpful' but I am concerned about using Lorazapam all day.
