... almost every night for 2.5 months (due to anxiety). I'm finding that it's no longer as effective and I've likely become dependant. My doctor has added Doxepin (3mg) as a non-habit forming sleep aid so I can wean off ativan but I find that even when I take both bills, I'm still not getting a good night's sleep. Some nights are only a few hours and sleep onset is an issue.. this worsens my anxiety about cutting out the Ativan but at the same time I hate being dependent on it and want to be off. Please help!
Tthi. I have gone up the ladder with benzos. My last attempt was 3 mg of ativan. I was having memory problems, concentration problems, despite my adhd meds etc. Was also having digestive issues, renewed sleep apnea and frequent urination at night. I finally had to get off off them the hard way. I know of no other new benzos at this time. My anxiety has lessened and my sleep finally stabilized after a month and 1/2. It was rough but I'm glad I'm done. I had cancer and beat that too. Now I just have to deal with survivors ptsd. , cancer can be a sneaky b____h. I was not myself on 3mg. For over a year.
