Like he said, benzos really aren't an ideal medication for insomnia. For how
many days consecutively have you taken the Ativan
? If it's only been a few days, then your doc may not recommend a taper. With a dose of 2mg, it may not be a bad idea to do a quick taper, just to avoid any shock to your system, which after only a few days could cause some anxiety and rebound insomnia. Usually, one has to be on a benzo a little longer than that to be at risk for w/ds.
