Congrats on your achievement!
I have been tapering for 10 months and having a heck of a time. I have shortness of breath which has gotten progressively worse as I lower my does of Ativan. I have an appointment with my healthcare provider tomorrow and in the past she has said shortness of breath is not one of the effects of tapering but I have been to a cardiologist and pulmonologist about the shortness of breath that continues almost all waking hours. The docs say all tests are normal but much of the day I have trouble catching a breath. Actually, I pant. I am down to 0.125mg twice a day so I am getting close but it is coming at a big drain of me physically and emotionally.
