Hi I'm new so hopefully this has not been asked before. I've gone through a number of diagnosises until my doctor finally settled on a anxiety disorder I've been having more delusions as of late but thankfully ativan still seems to shut them down or at least lessen them a great deal. The thing is I've I've heard it's uncommon for this to actually work for most people and have gotten many surprised looks from medical professionals when it only takes a few minutes for the delusion to stop after taking a small dose. Is anyone else like this?

I don't take ativan but I occasionally take a Xanax for anxiety and stress which is in the same class of drugs as Ativan. When I'm really stressed out with high anxiety I often have more psychotic symptoms like delusions or hallucinations. After taking a Xanax it helps me relax and the psychotic symptoms are often decreased because of this I think.
