Re: Took .5 mg Ativan for a month, should I wean off?
ok, for the past week I have been taking anywhere from .25 mg to .5 mg per day. It seems it has increased depression a tad the following morning or late at night as I have read this is a common side effect (from the ativan "hangover" people describe). My goal is to not take Ativan at all, I've read enough from actual patients and users of it that over the long term it can become quite dangerous in terms of addiction and if you stop taking it suddenly.
It's been a long year, trying my best to get back to taking only Effexor, exercise, and a good diet because that is when I felt alive and like myself with no depression and no anxiety at all.
