Ok so I've had this ridiculous problem with insomnia, making me unstable, my relationships strained, and my commitments unmet. (I am bipolar II and if I don't get sleep my life basically falls apart) My doctor gave me Neurontin, which didn't work, so he upped the dose to something high. Still didn't work. Now he gave me ativan, 2mg tabs to take 1/2 before bed and 1/2 an hour before bed. Now I'm getting good sleep but find myself very depressed, crying for no reason or else wanting to cry. Having disturbing images such as my own bloated dead green body hanging from a rope in the corner of the room. Car crashes, etc. So the disturbing images in my head and the suicidal thoughts, the sadness for no reason at all. Anyone else have weird effects from ativan/aka lorazepam??
