Since taking ativan 2 months ago... been having crazy suicidal thoughts :( very powerful very scary very confusing! I never thought ativan could do this... my own fault for thinking that I guess.. Scared!
I am a 71 year old male and I started Xanax several years ago and I started having retention problems about 5 years ago. My Dr wanted to do several terrible sounding tests but my better sense said to wait and check out the meds I take first.
