2 doctors weighed in:

I take .5mg Ativan for anxiety on an as needed basis. If I'm taking it once every 3 weeks or so, is that too much? Will I become addicted?

In brief: 0.5 mg Ativan is a

very low dose and taking it as needed every three weeks or so will not lead to addiction.
If you have not yet developed/reviewed anxiety management strategies you may want to check out websites such as https://www.adaa.org/tips-manage-anxiety-and-stress. Best regards for good health.
