... 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!
