Taper off Ativan with a unique in-home method


Ativan is a high-potency, immediate acting benzodiazepine that is used to treat anxiety, insomnia and many other disorders. Ativan can interfere with the formation of new memories causing memory loss, cognitive dysfunction and impairments in daytime functioning.

Ativan targets GABA, the most prevalent calming neurotransmitter in the nervous system.  GABA functions as the body’s natural nerve-calming agent but is also instrumental in inducing sleep, reducing anxiety and calming the relaxing.  As the body adapts to Ativan and down-regulates the GABA receptors anxiety increases, as does insomnia, muscle pain, weakness, fear, cognitive imbalances, coordination problems, headaches, depression and many other symptoms. Often the signs of tolerance to Ativan are misinterpreted and additional drugs are added or the dosage of Ativan is increased.  This cycle of tolerance will continue and the only way to break it is to escape the dependence to the drug.

Abruptly stopping or rapidly withdrawing Ativan is not recommended due to the severity of withdrawal symptoms that include the risk of seizure or dangerously high blood pressure. A gradual dose reduction is necessary for your safety and to minimize the potentially debilitating symptoms.

Our team of experts utilizes slow titration schedules combined with calming Nutraceuticals to ease Ativan withdrawal symptoms. We have helped people in 73 countries over the last 11 years and our nonprofit can also help you. This is a low cost program with proven results.

Understanding Ativan

(Lorazepam, Temesta, Lorabenz)

Ativan (Lorazepam) is a short-acting, high-potency benzodiazepine with a high addiction potential. It is only recommended for short-term use (less than 2 weeks) because tolerance can occur after even short-term consecutive use. The benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome includes rebound insomnia, anxiety, fear, pain, agoraphobia and the inability to engage life. The symptoms can be mild to extreme and include seizures if abruptly discontinued or reduced too rapidly. Ativan, and all benzodiazepines should be withdrawn by a gradual dose reduction.
