I have Bipolar Disorder/Psychosis NOS and PTSD 4, and must tolerate ceaseless loud Meniere's Disease along with serious hearing loss ongoing. I've been sedated/maintained on 6 mg. Ativan per day for over a decade - Will this be cut off/reduced ?
My doctors agree with me about NEVER increasing Ativan, (I am a former Psych nurse and know how abused this benzdiazapine is, but it is crucial to support my heart status (r/t noise + etc.). So anyway, on and on...Will they be likely to deny me - and others in severe, needful medical status? Why should truly needy med patients pay a price for abusers? Also, I HAVE to note that I believe that NO gov't employee with any status is ever denied what they want (including better care/insurance). They are special, right?
