I ended in the ER a basket case with tremors, loss of balance and jerks after going off 2.5mg/day suddenly. The ER doctor told me to go off more gradually, i.e. take .5mg twice/day x 3days, then .5mg once/day at bedtime for 3 days and then go completely off. Since going totally off I still have
really bad headaches, still have visual light sensitivity, and stinging feet. I had been on Lorazepam for anxiety for 4 months and was told to get off of it after my heart surgery because it really caused me so many side effects that I spent 6 hr. a day in bed. How much longer should it take? I'm on day 17th.
