From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have been on lorazepam for about almost 8 months. I used it since march because of me losing sleep and having panic attacks in middle or during my sleep. I also used it for anxiety. I was once in er for having panic attacks and they gave me this and other medicines I was on was lexapro and that didn't work so stopped it and took prozac for a month than switch to paxil but my psychiatrist describled lorazepam take twice a day or three times a day I slept pretty good with it as it took about couple days to work but than I notice as I started sleeping good I get this rebound effect feeling tired in day or dopey drowsy. I also lessened my lorazepam to 2 times instead of 3 times. But I sometimes have trouble sleeping but I also notice my menstrual becomes more heavier than usual once I started taking this after I started it. I wonder if it increases blood for my menstrual cause when I was without lorazepam before I started it I had menstrual problems being late cause my anxiety and panic disorders. But now It's good I'm getting my menstruals on time now but I don't like my menstrual too heavy. Now I'm like I never really had big flowness of menstrual in long time but bleeding too much it so no good. Sorry for being disgusting. Anyways lorazepam is not for short term but yet I still use it. I also heard a rumor it might cause alzheimer's disease if taking longer? Ahh that scares me. I hate to withdrawal lorazepam because of having panic attacks again and not being able to sleep that scares me most and if I did I would have to do it at some mental health clinic or some recovery center. Too scared cause if I withdrawal it than It be like before not getting enough sleep, panic attacks. But lorazepam causes more depression though so that's another thing I'm concerned about but I am on paxil not sure that's helping either. I'm scared to keep changing or going of medicines cause of my body might start to explode. I already had some aggression fits little bit bad dreams, and sometimes I forget things. I also craving on chocolate at times even at night time which is not good since I need sleep. My crying has been very problem. I constantly cry longer than usual and I have no friends and that's another reason and me want to feel better without all the issues. Only problem paxil took months to kick in and I wish it would kick it right away like lorazepam does but lorazepam I wish can be in a longer term one to take for awhile and it kicks in better than paxil but paxil takes it's time. idk what to do but I'm scared to get myself withdrawaling since there's risk. Even switching and stopping medicines causes mind confusion and time adjustment. I keep having unusual dreams with lorazepam about my past ex boyfriends and some strange dreams about some shootings. Ugh.. I wish I never had those dreams.
