Please work with: Your doctor re this as cold turkey withdrawal from Ativan (lorazepam) can be dangerous. Also you will need assistance in finding other ways of managing what it is you take the Ativan (lorazepam) for. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Take care.

Family practice : Try cutting back .25 mg aday for a week then another .25g a day for a week. Keep doing that till off. Counseling along the way would also help a great deal.
