So I went to my intake meeting and now I have an assessment meeting in two weeks to see where they can place me.
Until then, my wonderful doctor gave me a prescription for Ativan (Lorazepam) to ease some of my withrawal symptoms and anxiety.
I couldn’t sleep at all last night because of the extreme discomfort I’ve been in and now I’m covered in scratches and bruises and I’m exhausted.
Be very, very careful with Lorazepam, and all benzodiazapines! I’ve had to withdraw from Lorazepam on two separate occasions, and both times were far worse than any opiate withdrawal… WDs lasted about 2 weeks straight both times for me, and I was bed bound. Try not to take more than 1mg per day, and good luck!
My mother is in control of giving me my dose (1mg only when needed). I just need it to be able to calm down enough to function in the smallest ways. I’ve had to withdraw from clonazepam before, I’m assuming it would be the same. But perhaps not, because I was also on 900mg seroquel at the time. Still I’m not on it long term and like I said, I’m not in control of my dosing (good thing).
Thank you for your wise words <3
