I’ve got a prescription benzodiazepine (lorazepam, aka Ativan) for panic attacks and am wondering if it would be a good idea to use it before rituals to evoke spirits.
I find that my mind races during setup and execution of rituals and this may be hampering my progress. Lorazepam greatly helps my mind not to race. However, it is a global brain activity suppressant (it inhibits neurons from firing through GABAergic activity) and I worry that it could actually prevent the brain activity required for evocation.
TL;DR: Is lorazepam/Ativan a good or bad idea prior to rituals and evocations?
