Tomorrow I start suboxone and I have been taking Ativan (it is prescribed to me) to help with the hyperness and anxiety that I deal with on a daily basis (PTSD). Will taking ativan effect me from starting treatment tomorrow? Should I ask for the generic or just take what I am given?

Hi Karma,
Congrats on starting your sub program. I hope all goes well for you.
I too take daily adivan as prescribed and my doctor is fine with it, I never tried to hide it from him either. So be honest and see what your dr. Says. I only take 2mg before bed and with anxiety or panic attacks. I have been on them for 15 years and never had a problem before, after or during my subs, as long as you are tolerant to benzos, you will be fine, but again, do talk to your doctor about it for sure.
Hope it all goes well for you, good luck.

Hi Karma and welcome to the forum. Like Feeb said, just be honest with your doctor. Ativan should just make you feel a bit better while you're in withdrawals before your sub induction, but it shouldn't interfere with the actual induction.

And congrats on making the choice to start suboxone and change your life. I've been on it for nearly 3 years now and I couldn't be happier with my treatment. I hope you have as much success with your sub treatment as I have.

Let us know how your induction goes.
