I think we have an answer. You took a powerful and addictive medication for a month and have, for reasons unknown, discontinued and now 24 hrs later you are starting to have withdrawal symptoms. Sorry.
The symptoms if you were still taking it would indicate another visit to the doctor as there is a pile of side effects https://www.drugs.com/sfx/ativan-side-effects.html. If you have no reason to discontinue ask the doctor to replace that with a less potent benzodiazepine.
Take care, Steve
Stopping abruptly will do this. See our Dr, report what you posted here and get help, nothing anyone online can do for you except point you in the right direction.
