Ive been on 4-5 mg ativan 5or6 years. what drug do you use to feel comfortable while getting off ativan?
As you probably know, it is best to decrease your dosage slowly over much time when getting off a benzodiazepine such as ativan. If you are having rebound anxiety, I can recommend you investigate other medicines besides the benzodiazepines for anxiety such as many antidepressants which also help with anxiety. There is a support group which maybe helpful at the following website:
Browse the site, talk to some of the members, I think they can be of some use to you.
