Been off ativan for5wks,stupidly cold turkey, at first I had some bad withdrawals, but little by little they are starting to go away. I try to take it day by day, try to watch my diet,exercise, think positive and pray. I know it,s a long road but I know someday I will see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Attaboy Angelo. Ya gotta think positive. Keep putting ur best foot forward and dont look back!!!!!

@angelo How much Ativan were you on? I had a problem causing me a lot of stress about 12 or 13 years ago. The doctor I was seeing then gave me Ativan, never mentioning that it should not be used constantly so I took some every night so I could sleep. After a few months she finally said something about it so I got off of it but I did not need to "withdraw", I just stopped taking it with no ill effects. Was that because I was just taking a low dose, once a day? I forget how much I was taking, maybe 5 mg.
