Do Not Use. Look up effects at other websites.like Wikipedia. I used 4 mg for a number of years & wanted off of it. Am using the Ashton Protocal to wean off of it. Don't stop without using a method to ease off. Withdrawal is terrible and protracted Look up Ashton

DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION FOR ANY REASON. THE WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS ARE MUCH WORSE THAN THE BENEFIT GAINED BY TAKING IT. READ ALL INFO AVAILABLE. NOT TO BE USED REGULARLY OR FOR ANY EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. DON'T DO IT.

When my mother died very unexpectedly, Ativan was the only thing that kept me sane. I only used it for a short time, but it was wonderful all the same.
