    Addicted to ativan?

    Has anyone been through an addiction or withdrawl to an benzo such as ativan?? I have only been taking it off and on for 60 days but not taking it is making me feel like im having withdrawl symptoms is this possible? My dosage was .5 once a day i split the .5 tablet in half and took half in the a.m. then the other half at bedtime. Now i feel jittery, anxious, nauseated. I was having jaw pain, breathing issues and still having dizziness, and i thought the ativan was causing this so i decided friday nite was my last dose and now i feel horrible. Can i quit just like that and how long will i feel bad without taking it till these symptoms go away??? Please Help with any info you might have.
