Can ANYBODY help me?? Am I the only person who has been taking Ativan for 18 years? I take 3mg per day. I have been on Suboxone for 6 months also. From every person/doctor, I have heard NOT to stop the Ativan abruptly because it is dangerous. Well, they also say its dangerous to take them together. Now I am being told by a new doc to stop the Ativan immediately for him to continue to prescribe the suboxone. I am scared to death. Not only do I pretty much not know who I am without the Ativan, I am worried of the dangers and withdrawals. Mainly I am asking How Long I will suffer the withdrawals from that?
