Re: Quit Ativan cold turkey

1mg isnt very much BUT... if it were me, I would still do a taper because it is a benzo. There are different ways. Cutting the tablet and taking 3/4's for a week or two etc. OR taking them every other day, then third day. With a benzo, slow is always best so you dont get into trouble. Some probably could do it cold turkey, but some cant. I guess if it was me, I would start slow. Just INHO
