Just start small and see what works for you, sounds like your perfectly aware of the caution aspects of
lorazepam and thats a good thing. Im currently still taking clonidine
more now for
my hypertension, but they do have a calming affect. Just be aware with the ativan that you dont want to take it for a long time if you dont need to, but a couple of weeks or month of use during your w/d's shouldnt be a problem. Congrats on being clean of oxycodone, its a hard one to kick, so good job to you.
