hello everyone. i have been on ativan since may 2014 where I was taking only half of one milligram pill. since july i have been on 1 mg a day. i am trying to get off of it--i have asthma and it is bothering my breathing.

one psychologist just gave me continual renewal prescription of ativan and another other psychologist did give me a prescription for valium to cross over and then taper. i am very afraid since the ativan is bothering my asthma, what will happen when i take both ativan and valium at the same time on the days i am doing so as i am crossing over. i am afraid that i will just stop breathing altogether. i am seeing my pulmonologist in a few days. thanks. please respond.
