Just started taking. Dr says that I don't have to be weened off that I can just stop. trying to use on an as needed basis. But didn't know that about celexa either
Smrl If you just started Ativan and only take as needed and have only taken a few over a period of time that is right you don't need to be weened off. Now the Celexa It just depends on how long you have been on it if over a month or so then you should wean yourself off if you have only taken it for a few days no real problems to just stop it too. let your Doctor know what you are doing.
Ativan is easier to withdraw from.
The bigger problem is losing its effectiveness if you use it daily.
You will find yourself taking the pill but not having any effect. The only way to fix it is to go without it for awhile or increase the dose.
It's why Chuck advised to only take it as needed,etc.
