Hello everyone. Just so you know, I've been on and off ativan with no problems at all. Just wean yourself! Benzos are habit forming, yes, but prozac, effexor etc., can have terrible side effects coming off them! Ativan is the only pill that works for me for my anxiety. You can't stop anything cold turkey without side affects. At least ativan isn't playing with the chemicals in your brain, its just a mild tranquilizer. All I know is that, I did the paxil thing for 5 yrs, that was hard to come off, but I personally have never had a problem coming off ativan, just make sure you wean! Good luck Wendy
