Common Questions and Answers about How long do ativan withdrawal symptoms last


Avatar f tn I keep reading that the worst of the withdraws last 3 to 4 days, and while i do feel better, I do not feel like I thought I would. I'm concerned that I'm just never going to feel normal again. If anyone has any information that would be of help i would greatly appreciate it. thanks.
Avatar m tn 90 days is a common turning point, but it doesn't stop there. Yes, methadone can take a long time to recover from. I was on twice as much as you and it took me 10 months to feel good. It is rough, but totally worth it. Hang in there. Are you taking vitamins and getting enough electrolytes and amino acids? That really helps. What are your other symptoms, maybe we can help with supplements to get you through.
Avatar f tn years ago I was on Ativan for sleep. that stuff is the worst. started having weird problems from it. Paradoxical reaction or rebound anxiety? I dunno... but the more I took, the worse I felt. Pdoc gave me remeron in order to taper slowly off Ativan. it worked and I was benzo clean for 1 1/2 years. Doc and I decided it was time to wean of remeron. weight gain was awful, and since I never had an anxiety disorder before, figured it would be ok. after a slow wean, jumped off remeron at 5mg.
Avatar f tn s a lot to take in six days is why I ask . As far as withdrawals go it depends on how long you have been abusing and how much so if you can provide that information we will have more to work with .. Good luck ..
Avatar m tn Is it possible to have any withdrawal symptoms from taking Ativan? I am determined to find something like herbal supplements to help me with the anxiety. Please help me. Thank you.
Avatar m tn My hands were seeming uncoridinated, I had low B12 and doc suspected B12 defiecincy for which I am being treated. At the time of diagnosos I stated taking Ativan/ It pretty much ended the symptoms. But I was having tolerance withdrawal, so I wnt off cold turkey on Sunday. My hands shake, and my tongue shakes a little, except when I am at rest.
Avatar m tn its been almost 38 hours since i last took my medicine,i really need to take them again....what do i do?
Avatar n tn Congratulations on your clean and sober time! What you are now experiencing is the reason why home detox plans usually result in failure. Detox is the easy part. It's the life, behavior and attitude changes that kick you in the arse. Those are the things you need help with. If you read through this forum, you'll see that the long-term success stories involved some form of aftercare, whether through AA or NA or private therapy.
Avatar f tn I was using Ativan o.5 mg for a year, and I am experiencing strange symptoms such as horrible pain and pressure in my jaw and buzzing in my ears. I also have anxiety and skin crawling. I have had so many tests done on my body, all coming back normal. Many listed symptoms of Ativan withdrawl, I think this may be due to the Ativan, however, I have used such a small amount, 0.5mg, once a day. I cannot find information how to taper off this small amount?
Avatar n tn Thank you for your info. Yes, I've learned a hard, fast lesson and have absolutely no desire to go back to either one. Just want the physical symptoms to end. My asthma is something I've had for years, however it has been gone since my weight loss surgery (lost 120 lbs.) about 1 1/2 years ago. It's not severe but I feel a little restriction when I breathe since quitting the ativan, didn't feel it with the norco withdrawals.
Avatar n tn t want to have to deal with being on it longer. This leads me to my questions. 1) How long would it take for Ativan to leave my system after taking 1.5mg a day for a month? So far I have missed two doses, my afternoon and night time doses. 2) Was this late night anxiety attack/hot flash just a withdrawal symptom or was it a rush of the Ativan leaving my system (kinda of like alcohol does the morning after a night a heavy drinking)?
