I too only took the lorazapam as needed but the doctor changed it to 2 small doses am and pm. I have my blockages in my left main coronary artery 60% but thank God no surgery is needed yet. It is in an awkward place so a stent is not feasable only bypass.I get angina pain on an off right in the chest at the heart and being anxious I make the pain worse.I need to get control over the anxiety for sure.

I only take my Lorazapam as needed. I find it works better that way. I too get the chest pain at least several times of year. It was only recently that I clued into the fact it was anxiety and not a heart problem.

Hi all,
I have always been an anxious person,always worrying
my whole life. Finally I got a panic attack in 2003 and thought it was a heart attack never having experienced such physical sensations. I have been battling them ever since. Have tried some anti depressants but went off because I felt no emotion and was eating unmindfully while on them.I started getting heavy years ago after my children were born and have been on some form of diet for years. I keep failing and trying. I am starting to realize that if I dont get this anxiety under control,I wont get my weight under control either. I thought I was going crazy until I realized so many many people get these attacks. They make me fearful to leave the house somedays but I force myself.I take lorazapam in am and in pm prescibed Sept 1 after a huge panic attack. The catch 22 with me is I have some artery blockages that sometimes give me anginalike pain and when I get a panic on top it causes worse chest pain and more fear and more pain. Well I guess you get it. Glad there is a support group out there. This anxiety may be the cause of my obesity. It causes one to STUFF their emotions. thanks for listening.I'm starting to get it.
