Hello bspivack. Fair question. Addicted no. Dependant, yes. But dependence is not addiction. ( my own point of view) The thing to keep in mind, especially with the benzodiazepines, are that yes, they can become addictive, but that usually takes some time. Not a long period, but still some. In stopping thats where it becomes difficult. The longer on the drug, ativan, the more difficult it will be when it is time to not take it anymore. That really holds true for the benzodiazepine family. Be they short or long acting. Take care, and the best of wishes,pledge
