Hi again Gary - im still very interested to hear about your Ativan experience at further length as you mentioned. Are you still on it? I take valium at night but hate the thought of benzo dependance. Does ativan also have the effect of tolerance and dosage increases etc? I was in hospital last nite again because i woke up with extreme weakness, chills, panic symptoms, fainting etc. Even though i do have pots and i cant find the cause, im willing to try anything that may help things become a little stable. ~Chris.
