I think that I'm addicted to the Ativan, everytime I try to back down from .50mg to .25mg... it doesnt work or it causes worse anxiety for all day, even with taking the suggested herbs and vitamins.
I was told today that Ativan .50mg is like taking 5mg valium! How am I going to get off this stuff?
I only started the Ativan in May and never took the entire prescribed dosage which was to take .50mg 3 times a day.
I am taking the B5, 250mg 2 times a day, breakfast and one at lunch.
Lecithin 1tbsp. 3 x day.
Drinking kava kava tea 2/3 times a day
and taking liguid Ashwagandha 2 x day giving me about 2000mg each dose... I think.
Someone suggested that i take Cortisol Manager by Intergrative Therapeutics, Inc. at night which has Ashwgandha (Sensoril brand), L'theanne, 2eine50mg a blend of Magnolia 225 mg and Phosphaidlylseine (sp) at night time. What do you think?
How long before I can get off the Ativan without the rebounding???
