Well I am almost off my Ativan, it's taken me a very long time to taper from 1 mg and I will be off one day this month, I did the water titration taper using 200ml of water, I am down to 10ml.
It was hellish in the beginning but so much easier once I got to 50% off.
I just don't know what life will be like without them, I took them everyday for 5 years.
My pdoc gave me 2mg valium to use as needed once off the Ativan but I am afraid to get dependent on those too.
It's been a hell of a ride but I want to point out some things that have helped me.
Biofeedback, I can only say it's an amazing skill that really works and since I have been doing it for 1 year it almost works as good as a chill pill.
Changing my diet also worked wonders
I don't eat any MSG and eat as much organic foods as possible, it really helps.
I hope I can live without those pills.
Thanks for listening.
