Hi...I had cancer 4 years ago and did chemo for 6 months after major surgery. Since chemo I have neuropathy with major issues on hands and feet. A while back an emergency doctor put me on .5 MG ativan for 'restlessness ' as he put it. Take as needed. WOW I was amazed how it helped my neuropathy !! Settled it down quickly and easily which is not why I went on ativan. Now to convince a doctor that this is a magic pill for a refill prescription as the general opinion is ativan is addictive. Well if it does such a good job on neuropathy for me it's not addictive just relief. ..thoughts ?

I do not take any other medications and was wondering if this is from the lorazepam or just stress in general? Any advice would be appreciated.
