1. this isn't an Ativan problem, it's an ER doctor problem

Ativan is good for short term or occasional sleep problems, similar to Valium or Xanax. But when he saw he was having a chronic problem or needing an increasing dose to get the same effect plus having anxiety, he should have gone to psychiatrist. There are sleep-inducing medications that have no addiction potential.

Also, the doctor gave him two benzodiazapines at the same time. Big, potentially deadly, mistake. Know what you are taking and what the risks are. Don't be so focused on Ativan that you end up taking something else with the same problem or avoid other drugs that may help you.
