Brief Answer: Depends on which medicine you want to take. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for posting your query. I understand your concern and anxiety. The anti-anxiety medicine dose depends on the particular medicine, so without knowing the medicine I would not be able to tell you the dosage that will be necessary, moreover, taking any anxiolytic or sedative medicine will need a prescription, so i would urge you to get a prescription for the same. Please write back to me with the name of the medicine which you intend to take, so that I can answer your question. Awaiting your response. Regards.

Ativan, I have taken it once before (1mg) for a medical procedure, made me feel a bit loopy. So should I take less?

Brief Answer: I would advice my patients 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg Detailed Answer: Hello again. Thanks for writing back. For anxiety, I would prescribe my patients 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg and never more than that. As I said earlier, please obtain a prescription for the medicine, without a prescription you will not be able to procure this medicine. Hope that clears your doubts. All the best. Regards.
