      I am on Celexa for about 6 weeks now and to help with anxiety I am allowed .5mg Ativan every 8 hours. I don't want to abuse it so I am following that, but days like today it was rough. The attack has passed but I am still shaky and anxious.

      Ask the pharmacist to show you nutrition drinks. Some have milk base. Some have soy base. It includes some nutrients that are not in vitamin pills. Some medicines may deplete nutrients. Ask the pharmacist about whole foods vitamins. Ask the pharmacist about food choices or see a dietician.

      Ask your doctor if on bad days you can take a third Atavan. If you are already taking one milligram a day, at some point when you come off it, you will need to taper off.  Another .5 won't make any difference at taper time. When I came off it, I was on 2.5mgs. a day. You need to be able to use what you need. It doesn't sound like you are likely  to abuse (taking when you don't need it, just to get the feeling). Good luck and be well.

      You are on 1mg of atavan per day. A couple of years ago, for another reason, I was on 2. Check with your doc. about another .5 per day. It's ridiculous to suffer like that. I am on Clonidine patch now, starting at ,1 mg. Went up to .2, but it took .3 to do the trick. Clonidine, like atavan has to be tapered off when no longer needed. Not much difference tapering from ,1 or .3, just a little more time, and who knows how long I'll need it. Getting help now is important. Until we get the worst of the anxiety toned down with drug help, we can't respond to our problem with a clear head. I'm still experiencing all the stuff, but waaaaay less. Now I can think clearly about what other ways I can help myself. Check it out.
