Good Afternoon~

I have been reading alot about Milk Thistle and Ativan and how MT can lower the efficacy of Ativan. Can someone help me please figure out when I should take the MT and the Ativan? I take Ativan at 8:30am/2:30pm./8:30pm/1:30am. I don't know when to fit the MT in there.

I really need some help in figuring it out. I take MT 3x a day. I am going through alot of confusion and general Lymie-brain lately. Any help would be SOOOOO appreciated.

I pray for us all each day.

Breezy

Hi Breezy,

I hope this is of some help to you. But I think if you contact a compounding pharmacy they would be able to give you the answer...

Blessings,

Julia

I agree. I would contact a compounding pharmacy too and get their opinions. Im sending you a private message as well. Hang in there.

I agree with abouve posts...

I also used to take Ativan...

I found it to be self perpetuating drug and got off of it and onto lexapro...cuz I had manic and depressive issues...

The lyme(neurologic) confusion is more evidence that you may need further IV therapy...

Thank you all for your replies. I have been on and off iv therapy for 10 years now. I had 5 really decent years in between. Usually 6-12 months on Doxy and I start to feel better, more good days than bad.

Ativan is not a drug I will be coming off anytime soon so I will be taking your advice and talking to the compounding pharmacist near my home.

Wishing us all better days.
