Hi I'm new to this page I've been on Ativan for 9 years starting at 3 mg a day 1.5 am 1.5 pm I am now today at 5.5 am 5.5 pm I want to come off but I've read so many horror stories ... my doctor has just put me on 3.75 mg am and 4 mg pm starting today which feels like a massive jump then taper off 1/4 every month what am I to expect in the next couple of weeks
