In brief: Not likely withdrawa

If your taper occurred from 1 mg to 0.
5 mg, try adding 0.25 mg, but since you only took it once a day, withdrawal is unlikely.

In brief: Negative

That's not Lorazepam withdrawal.
That's just palpitations. There exceedingly common, you know? Have a 24 holter (heart recording) monitor done and see what type of arrhythmia you're having. Then, if needed, it can be treated. Also:check your thyroid, potassium, magnesium; avoid tobacco, alcohol, stimulants, and caffeine. Get plenty of rest. Practice stress reduction. Don't blame the lorazepam.
