Am I Having Withdrawals Or Am I Just Going Crazy ?

13 new pills (sorry for double post, edited a few times) Hello, I'm 13 and my doctor put me on a pill called lorazepam to help me with sleep. I was on ambien for a few months too but I got taken off it due to overdosing. I took lorazepam everyday for weeks and my mom started randomly taking me off and back on it. I start laughing randomly at times and just weird stuff like hallucinations. I think I'm having withdrawals but my mother doesn't believe me. Am I having withdrawals or am i just going crazy..?

Dear patietn,
these medicines have a tenedncy to cause addcition.As a result once you stop using these drugs you will get lots of side effects which is grouped under withdrawal symptoms.For mental tensions and loss of sleep it is better to use natural means.I would suggest you to go for some ayurveda medicines which will help you attain normal sleep.You can contact an ayurveda doctor for more details

welcome to healthcare magic,
your symptoms of hallucination are alarming. are you aware of these changes yourself or you are told by your relatives that you are behaving in an abnormal manner?
You need to stop abuse of medicines by yourself increasing or decreasing medications. if you keep on having auditory hallucinations like third person commentary describing your deeds then you may be suffering from schizophrenia and need to consult a good psychiatrist for treatment.
i hope i have answered to your query.
