I don’t feel terribly qualified to answer medical questions, but I think the main concern is breathing and heart rate. Does anything feel off there?

There should be a list of side effects on the pill bottle that will inform you if what’s happening is normal.

@hellkell

yeah it’s ativan/lorazepam. I do feel calmer. lllllooooooooooooooooootttttttttttt calmer

but also kinda weird. idk i think I’m talking wierd. and I cna’t focus. Ask fade, she will contest. ๐Ÿ˜›

I’vve been bugging her.

@wierdwoodtreehugger

no my breathing heart rate are fine. I don’t think I’m in medical emergency. I’m just curious what’s happening to my body.

Side effects it said confused can be side effect

and the calm thing that’s supposed tohappen.

And I looked up and you can get high on lorazepam i think

but on my dose that seems weird

and idk even if I’m high

just suuuuuupppppppppppeeeeeeeeerrr lloopppy.

confused can mean loopy, in medical pill labeling.

Suuuper loopy can be high. So long as you don’t drive or operate heavy machinery, don’t do anything to hurt yourself or any one else, and don’t start taking it just for the loopy feeling, you’re probably fine.

If you get worried, or if Fade gets worried at all, call the doc who prescribed it. They should be well educated in its side effects, or know exactly who to call to get the required info.

FFFMen idk. don’t like the idea of fade calling ehr on my behalf. I mean I trust fade. But I don’t like the idea recoommend to

i cant’ pull words out.

To the other person do medical stuff for you.

Yes that word.

Because My parents do medical stuff for me and they were dicks about it.

Good that heart rate/breathing are okay. I think just let your doctor know about this reaction, even if it’s atypical.

IIRC, those pills are scored so you can break them and take less than a whole one so you’ll just be calm, not loopy.

Avoid grapefruit juice, that can affect the metabolism of a lot of meds, and benzos are among them.

thank. I talk to my doctor see if I can take smaller doses.

I like them. They make my panic attack not hurt.

When I get bad panic attack my back hurts lots but they stop that.

OSSSSSSSSSSooo I will tell her.

but I really hope she doesn’t take me off them.

Marie: Lorezepam is a part of the benzodiazepine family.

Hey Pecunium. Just wanted to say, congrats on a successful wedding! May you and your life partner enjoy a loving relationship for many years to come. =)

Whoops! Didn’t mean for you to think Fade should call for you. More if Fade tells you zie’s worried, that you should call in.

I guess I worded that a bit too vaugely (or just too badly) for the situation. My bad. Totally. Contrapangloss gets negative points for communication skills.

Sorry!

DON’T have Fade call in for you. They probably wouldn’t talk to her, regardless.

I’m glad that the pill makes panic attacks not hurt, though. That’s definitely a good thing!

IIRC marie had me down as the person who makes your medical decisions if you are incapacitated. idk what it’s called? proxy? b/c our parents were generally shitty about medical stuff.

^should clarify if you are incapacitated and an emergency decision needs to be made. is that a kind of thing that people generally think of who they want to do in advance? i think our doctors told us to think of something…

Marie
