I found that I had a dry mouth. Weight gain is very common too. I lost 20 lbs during my taper though, so it was good to gain it back!

Would something like honey in water help keep your throat coated?

[...],   im not sure yet.  I heard the smaller doses have a greater effect but im afraid to take 15mg so i may start out with a quarter of that.   I have a swollen voicebox and it drives me nuts.  Feels like im choking and thats why i was put on the ativan.  Turns out the ativan causes so much dehydration that it made my throat even more painful due to extreme xeromstomia.  I completely lost my voice on the ativan.  Now that i have weaned down my voice is starting to come back but i still have the lump in the throat.  I am in a real catch 22 because it makes me swallow non-stop.   The doctors think i have silent reflux and possible neurological problems.   I havent slept more than 3 hours at a time in 8 and a half months.  I wouldnt even know what its like to wake up feeling rested.

I was diagnosed with laryngopharyngeal reflux due to a small hiatal hernia. I know what you are going through. I have a glass of water by my bed and have to sip it every couple of hours through the night.

Its a pill not a capsule so i broke the 15 mg into four pieces.  I never even took aspirin before any of this happened to me.  I hate it

There are two forms. The quick dissolve ones are pills.

BTW: I have Remeron sitting on my bedside table too. It has been there for 4 nights. I'm trying to survive without it. I don't want to get hooked on another drug. I had a rough night last night but am going to try another night without it.

Its the best. It has been a huge help for me during and in the aftermath of my hospital detox. It puts me in a blissful coma and I wake up startving and I can eat. A bit of a hangover for the first few days though. I take 30 mgs but I hear 15 is good too.

Does the 30 leave you sluggish the next day?
