Doctor :   Hi Dr XXX here
User :   Hello?
User :   Oh! hi
Doctor :   how can i help u ?
User :   I had a question, actually, I've been diagnosed with OCD and anxiety disorders, and was prescribed Ativan. My normal dosage is one twice a day, or whenever I feel I need it. I took one this afternoon, then in the evening, my anxiety started to rise over a couple different events, and I took two. Now each pill is 1 mg. Is that too much? or more or less am I in any danger?
Doctor :   ok, let me read your query
Doctor :   no as such , the lethal or dose to cause side effects may be higher than what u have consumed
Doctor :   so it is not going to cause much other than to make u calm and sleep off
User :   Ok, thank you. I was a bit concerned, I feel a bit like almost being tipsy but not quite, no trouble breathing, drowsiness, etc.
User :   Ohhh ok
Doctor :   you will feel sleepy, calm and mostly will doze off
User :   Ok, that's a relief. thank you so much
Doctor :   you are welcome
Doctor :   Do u have any other query?
Doctor :   please remember to leave your feedback as you log out ?
User :   No other query. I will indeed, thank you for your help :]
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   bye for now
