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...
they both have long haf lives so tapering off on either one is about the same as they are both benzos
Hello vabo. Ativan has a short half life. Valium has a long half life. What you are planning to do is often done in regards to stopping the fast acting benzodiazepines. Cannot suggest a taper in not knowing the amount of valium you plan to be taking. (hopefully minimal) Regards, pledge
As pledge responded, I think I'd stick with a slow Ativan taper.
