I have taken Ativan for 20 years for neck muscles knotting from cervical disk fusions, three. I hate Ativan, it causes my long term memory to almost disappear. When I stop taking it, its like I am watching a movie of the kids when they were little, I want that memory to stay.
Contact your doctor and tell him you want off and to put you on a slow taper plan that will work for you.. it took me 18 months to finally be free of xanax using diazepam as a crossover, I had very little to no withrawal, all was smooth. If I can be of anymore help send me a private question... pamee
