So my OB just prescribed 1 mg Ativan to take as needed for anxiety. I just took it and feel better but kinda spacey. Anyone else on it?

How far along are you? Ativan always helped with my anxiety, I just find out I'm pregnant and not sure if i should continue taking it.....

i am pregnant and my obgyn gave me .5 mg ativan. the ones i got are just like breathing air. they do absolutely nothing. klonopin before i was pregnant helped me the most.

Wellim not pregnant- I'm 4 mos pp and I started Prozac and that made me all anxious And "speedy" feeling- so my OB pretty much just gave me a one time Rx to get past the nasty side effects of getting of Prozac- congrats on your pregnancy:-)

i think you will be fine to take them as needed. not an everyday 3 times a day type thing but i feel that anxious feeling coming on definitely take one it will be fine. if it makes you feel feel better trying only taking .5 mg at a time if u have to break urs in half or whatever until you can talk to your obgyn about it.
