It has been one year since I took my last Lorazepam.
I was on them for 20 years.
They worked great for me...I was debilitated by anxiety disorder when I started them...I couldn't leave the house, drive, work, shop etc. And along with a bit of counseling I was able to resume my life.
The only time there was a problem was if I happened to run out.
Once I decided to just stop taking them and by the 4th day I was pretty messed up.
All those years I was just taking 1 mg a day at bedtime.
To stop I gradually went down by halves over a period of 3 months.
.5 mg for a couple of weeks, then down to .5 every second day for a few weeks, then every 3rd day and so on.
I had almost no withdrawal symptoms except trouble falling asleep some nights but I watched ASMR videos and counted sheep.
I feel fine...no anxiety or panic.
If I needed them again I would take them because they were the only pills that worked for me.
But so far so good.
To all of you my best wishes.
Take it slow and eat properly.
