Worried about doctor wanting to put her on it.
Hi.......Ativan has been causing severe memory loss. Doctors cannot get her off of it as the withdrawls were so intense for an 84 year old blind woman. She broke a bone in her back and gave her tramadol as it is non-addicting. She took one pill for one week..great for helping her move, but cause terrible nightmares and paranoia. Took her off that. Now the psychiatrist is seeing her decline wants to take her off ativan slowly by putting her on seraquel... I just read about it and am freaking out! It sounds terrible......any experiences??
