Tapering off of Lorazepam (Ativan)
I have adjusted my taper from 2mg down to 1.75mg. This seems to be working better.

Hi, @brandman48 – You mentioned that the 1.75 mg seems to be working better. Are you noticing fewer side effects at that dosage, or are you saying that a tiny step down is working better?
The slower the taper the better. This isn’t a race. It’s all about your health and wellbeing. Google the Ashton Manual. It’s a great tapering method and allows you to hold if your going through a rough spot. Also be careful with the tradozone. One can become dependent on this drug also and have to taper.
