I was reluctant to take it, have had it 3x in a week for some very high anxiety which landed me in the hospital for a racing heart, palpitations, stomach issues, dizziness, and severe fatigue. I can tell you that I finally SLEPT WELL after taking only 1/2 mg and started feeling like myself again. I have just moved overseas, my husband hasn't moved with me yet, I've had family issues, and am looking after an energetic 4 year old without much help. I felt like I was at the end of my rope and someone tied a knot for me to hang onto (the Lorazepam). Not sure how long I'll take it, am very wary about addictions, but the low dose every few days is taking the edge off of things.
