It is not recommended to stop taking a benzodiazepine such as Ativan abruptly due to the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms. If you wish to discontinue you must taper off the Ativan slowly over time. It is likely to cause rebound anxiety when you do cut back and eventaully stop taking. If you experience bad stress and panic when not taking, maybe it is best to not discontinue without first talking to your doctor.
