    I have anxiety and depression, and have been fighting through them for a long time now. I recently began taking Venafaxline and it has helped immensely! But my doctor also have me a small perscription of Ativan for the emergency times I might need it. After having taken it to get through a panic attack on a plane, I have noticed that whenever I even begin to feel anxious, I immediately think of taking Ativan. So far, I have only done that twice, but I'm worried that I might start becoming addicted to it. It's just that for someone who has lived their life with anxiety daily, it's nice to have something that removes a majority of it. Is Ativan addictive?
