he's got me on klonopin for anxiety/panic attacks and it is NOT working. my anxiety skyrockets as soon as i get to work and it is terrible.
i don't really care for xanax but i wanted to try lorazepam(ativan) and see if that helps. i just don't know how to ask for it

yeah, i think i'm just gonna go for it. i have been reading a lot and it talks about first line treatment with lithium is ativan, not klonopin...i'm gonna tell him what i have been reading and the trouble i have been having with the klonopin and just hope for the best...i need something though cause i can't deal with this anxiety

Just ask for it. I wonder if you feel comfortable enough with him that you think you can not ask for a med you would like to try. So, ask him, the worse he/she will say is no. Good luck!
