For months after I got my dx, and a very grim prognosis, I got by on Ativan. I took one .5mg pill as soon as I got up in the morning, and another one around lunch time. It didn't make me feel high or anything like that, just my normal calm and upbeat self. I didn't take one in the evening because I was permitted a glass of wine with dinner and I didn't think both wine and Ativan together was a good idea, and I do like my wine. Eventually I got back on my feet, and now I only take Ativan while I am waiting for the results of cat scans. Susan
