Melissa's story is different than pretty much any other we've told on this podcast. She was prescribed Ativan when she had her second child and couldn't sleep. As the dosage was upped, she experienced seizures and when she tried to cut down on the medication, she had strokes. After a year of decreasing the dosage, she finally was able to stop taking most of the drug but to this day is on a very low dose of Valium.
