twice a day (7am then 7pm) from Mon through Fri. Upon my checkup on Fri I explained that I was feeling much better and no longer having anxiety related issues. So on my PCP instruction I will now be getting off the medicine gradually over the next 3 weeks. My question is, "Is it unusual to still need to wean off of Lorazepam even though I was only on it for 5 days?" I'm honesty scared that it will make me dependent of the stuff.. It is making me anxious to think about and it worries me.. I should have asked my Dr while I was there "why" but at the time I wasn't thinking about it. Please help ease my mind..
