Ativan Withdrawal Symptoms
What medication can help with ativan (lorazepam) withdrawal symptoms either inpatient or outpatient?
See below: Gabapentin, and Depakote are helpful and commonly used. Many docs will use other psych meds like risperdal, seroquel (quetiapine) an d the like but these have lots of side effects. I usually substitute a long acting agent such as Librium or Phenobarbital and lower the dose is a stepwise fashion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Something Else: I am sorry but your symptoms cannot possibly or physiologically be related to lorazepam not taken for sixteen months. There is something else wrong with you and I would strongly advise a thorough medical or neurological evaluation at the medical clinic or Neurology office. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take ativan (lorazepam) for an anxiety disorder. I've heard it helps with some opiate withdrawal symptoms. How much should I take to relieve the symptoms?
Need to ask your Dr.: HealthTap is not used for treatment of individual patients, and something like the treatment of an addiction needs to be done through a one on one evaluation with a health care provider who you develop a relationship with. The continuity of care as well as an individual treatment plan will be developed personally for your withdraw symptoms in a well coordinated medical plan. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ativan (lorazepam): if taken once a day should be producing some withdrawal symptoms already ( it's a relatively short acting med) after 7 weeks.

Don't do it by self: Tapering off Lorazepam and hydrocodone, especially at the same time, requires someone with expertise to guide you as to how to do it. There is an old saying - the person who is their own doctor has a fool for a patient. Find an expert in addiction medicine (www.Asam.Org or www.Aaap.Org) who can help guide you in doing it right, not relapsing, and finding alternatives to treat pain/anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cont Ativan (lorazepam) for now: I certainly would not recommend coming off of Ativan (lorazepam) until the Hashimoto's is stabilized, i.e. exclude one variable at at time. I would continue/hold the Ativan (lorazepam) dose constant, thereby removing possibility that symptoms are due to Ativan (lorazepam)/benzo withdrawal. Once the Hashimoto's is controlled/treated, then can start slow taper off Ativan (lorazepam), reducing dose by 10-20% weekly or biweekly. ...Read more
