Thanks to all of you for your suggestions and comments!
I am filling the script today for the ativan
. I have not only spoke with the pharmacist, but also finally my therapist. They both agree on the same method of tapering off of the Xanax. The ativan
and the Xanax are the same.... both 2 mgs 3x a day. For the first week, I will
break both in half... take 1 mg of each 3x a day. The second week, I will
increase the ativan
by 1/4 and decrease the Xanax by 1/4, etc.
