It Makes Me Not-Stressed

3 mg oral Pharms - Lorazepam (pill / tablet)


An Every Day User

Lorazepam is a great drug. Let's start with that. As opposed to other anxiety medications such as Diazepam and Xanax, Lorazepam take a little more time to kick in.

When used orally, I'd say it takes about 30 minute to feel the effects crawling in slowly, when taken sublingualy I'd say 8 minutes. If I take a greater dose, I'll feel a bit drunk-like at this point, or after an hour or so.

This drug, or as I prefer to refer to it as a medication- saved many of my days from becoming dark ones. It tends to build a tolerance in no time. Currently, after months of using this pill, I have developed a strong tolerance to it.
I have developed a strong tolerance to it.
3 month ago, two 1mg pills could get me to act almost as if I have taken some tequila shots. But nowdays, I can take up to 4mg a day and not have the 'boozing effect', but just plain relaxation and calmness.

As a very experienced Benzo user; Lorazepam (or Ativan) always does the trick: it makes me not-stressed. That's the most important part.
