... ativan for 4 years for sleep and slowly tried to ween myself off of it. I haven't taken it for 3 weeks now and can sleep fine but I am having the worst anxiety I've ever experienced. Sweating, face getting red, worrying over every little dumb thing. I can't take it. Does anyone have any advice or has experienced the same thing? It's effecting my relationships and work life. I'm not sure what to do
