Weening Off of Ativan For Sleep

I have also been on Ambien and want off of it. It started because I was given Prednisone for a blood disease. which in turn led to not being able to sleep. I have been on Ambien for over 10 years and I panic if I do not have any. I have tried every over the counter sleep medication and nothing works. I was also given different prescription sleeping pills and they don't work either.

Hi, @kdel, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Having so much trouble sleeping and trying so many over-the-counter medications with nothing working would be very frustrating.
