I was prescribed Ativan 1mg per day as needed. For a few days I took 2 mg per day. Then went down to 1mg per day for 30 days taking .5mg in morning and .5mg at night. 2 weeks ago I decided I no longer wanted to be on it so my Dr. began weaning me off. He tapered me down to 1/2 twice a day for 2 days. Then 1/2 at noon for 2 days. I was then supposed to take 1/2 for 5 more days. Then I had surgery on my shoulder on the 3rd day so the Anesthesiologist told me to take any medicine I take in the morning. So I took my 1/2 in the morning before surgery. But before I was given Anesthesia they gave me 2 heaping Bags of Ativan intraveneously to aid in the process which is procedure. So that set me back a bit. So the next day I tried taking just the 1/2 at 3pm but by evening I was breaking out in huge welts and rashes that itched really bad and I became anxious a bit that evening so I took the other 1/2. So again I was set back. The next day I went back to the 1/2 at 3pm and had some dizziness and palpitations. But I didn't take another 1/2. So now I am taking half and really don't know what to do next. I no longer get the welts but I get really weird feelings of being on a cloud or spacey. And tonight I am experiencing a feeling of motion sickness but not vomiting. PLEASE HELP I AM SCARED AND WANT TO GET OFF THIS MEDICINE. PLEASE HELP ME KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT. THANK YOU
