Weaning ativan (lorazepam): The bigger question is why were you taking Ativan (lorazepam) for and which physician is providing your treatment. Taking Ativan (lorazepam) carry some risk depending length of treatment and amount of dose. So to provide you with this answer is providing treatment without all the details. The biggest risk is seizures or increased anxiety.
