Question about Benzodiazepines on DPD

1318 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Jeff
Hi guys,

i recently got some benzopills from my psychiatrist for trying them out on dpd(did not tried them out yet).

i actually asked for some lorazepam because i heard they are prescribed as pills aganst panic attacks and hence might effect on dpd...

i got some some lormetazepam pills instead.... and found that they are mostly prescribed for insomnia and as sleeping aid(maybe not used in US).... my general question is merely, if all benzos are working the same?? just the dose and duration of effect is different, or do they actually have a noticible different effect? if someone knows more about that i would appreciatean comment,

Thanks Guys!

I've been taken lorazepam (Ativan) for about 3 years now and the medication helped my anxiety and dp very much. The lorazepam makes me feel really good, it makes me feel really relaxed in my mind and body and eliminates all the anxiety I have so I highly recommended it.

I never heard of lormetazepam until now but it looks like they made a mistake because they both sound similar and you are right it used for insomnia. You should go back to your doctor and get the right prescription.
Personally I know of ativan, i had to look up lormetazepam, seems as if its a derivative of a benzo. Honestly Different benzos work differently for different people (Lots of differences, i know) One person could thrive on xanax while another might hate the way it makes them feel. Ativan of it self was not strong enough for my anxiety and i was prescribed klonopin. It worked for the most part but there are side effects that can be unpleasing as well. My advice would be to talk to your doctor about Ativan and have them prescribe the smallest dose possible and take it as needed.

Back when I started klonopin not as much was known about the long term effects, but they are definitely something you only want to take in a dire need type of situation.
