We know that every case of dependency is unique and needs a unique approach to achive success of recovery from drug addiction.
Ativan is a psychoactive drug, a strong benzodiazepine that causes a sedative style of relaxation and hypnotic effect on users. It is commonly prescribed for treating sleeplessness, anxiety and often times for withdrawals from other drugs. It is safe and effective if used under doctor care, but when overused or abused for a long period of time, serious health risks are at stake.
Effects of Ativan Abuse
There are many side effects that come with prolonged misuse of Ativan. Most are related to your physical and mental health. Some of these effects include impaired coordination, depression, dizziness and more. As with most drugs, too much use can mean your body builds up immunity and therefore it takes more of the drug to reach the same feelings. This is when dependency starts to form and problems frequently happen. If used alongside other recreational drugs like opiates or alcohol, Ativan use can be fatal.
