a very weird night with ativan. - March 19th 2009, 04:38 PM

Ativan, i believe is a pill used for anxiety and I don't really like anti-anxiety medication to begin with, but was told it was awesome. I tried 2 2mg of ativan and then moved up another 2. My boyfriend and I were so fucked out of our minds; it felt like my eye sockets were sunken in and only moved with me when my head moved. We kept forgetting everything and thought we'd mellow out by smoking a bowl. We did that and tried to have sex and I can't remember whether or not we got too drugged up to finish or if we did, but when we woke up i had no underwear on an either did her. It was funny, but weird at the same time. Is this how ativan is supposed to make you feel?

Considering you're intentionally over-dosing yourself, no it's not "supposed" to feel that way. You're getting into seriously murky waters when you start taking pills recreationally. Obviously, TH rules say we're not allowed to promote drug use so yeah. I'd recommend really seriously researching the drugs you're using before you use them because just blindly getting high on stuff like that can have really serious consequences. You have to find out the affects of taking the recommended dose, the affects of taking more than that, how much you have to take to OD, what drugs shouldn't be mixed with it, etc etc etc.

Like I always say, If you're going to do something stupid, you might as well be as smart as possible about it. Despite being a stoner myself, I still believe that doing drugs is stupid, but obviously i get that it's also fun, so just, be really really careful because you can get hurt/die/etc soooo easily.

I never said I didn't do any research on the pills i was doing. It's not like when you're high you can just know what it's going to be like. I've been a pill addict before, i know the dangers of, but i'm still going to do it because I throuroghly enjoy it and it's my reward at the end of week if I happen to stumble across it. I'm not one for searching for pills, they come to me. I'm not promoting the use of drugs in anyway either. I'm simply asking if this weird behavior was experienced by any other ativan users?

Ativan can affect the body like most other drugs do, and if something is taken in higher dosages, it will increase these side effects.

Most adverse reactions to benzodiazepines, including CNS effects and respiratorydepression, are dose dependent, with more severe effects occurring with high doses.
In a sample of about 3500 patients treated for anxiety, the most frequent adverse reaction to Ativan (lorazepam) was sedation (15.9%), followed by dizziness (6.9%), weakness (4.2%), and unsteadiness (3.4%).

This forum is also not here to tell stories about your personal drug/alcohol experiences or brag about your history.
I'm closing this because you're only going to get similar responses from people. Also, this thread is essentially for people to "share stories", which as you can see, is against the rules. If you want stories of other peoples experiences then google it or use another forum. If you disagree, feel free to PM me.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
