I have been taking 4mg of lorazepam for about 3 1/2 years for high anexity including physical symptoms - tremors, irregular heartbeat, difficulity breathing - all stress related. It is the only medication I take and I would like to try and find alternative ways to manage my PTSD.
The best and only way is with the help, direction and participation of the physician who has been prescribing it. After 3 1/2 years a program of gradual reduction over a period of no less than 3-5, 4-6 months (yes, months) will have you off with little to no withdrawal symptoms or relapse.
