I have been taking 1mg of Ativan for the past 2 years and am starting to taper off it. I am planning to cut my dose by 10% each week. I've read that a Valium crossover helps. If I crossover first, how long should I allow for the crossover and how would I do it? I am in Italy for the next two months and am trying to figure this out on my own. Since I'm far from my doctor, maybe it's better to stick with Ativan...
