Getting off ativan
Mar 6, 2008
After a diagnosis of cancer a year ago, I found myself unable to sleep at all. I have pretty much had insomnia most of my life. My doctors were concerned that I wasn't sleeping(and so was I), and after trying unisom, ambien, and trazadone we settled on ativan. Now I take 2mg before bed, but it doesn't knock me out like it used to. I would like to stop taking the Ativan---any advice out there? I also take melatonin which makes me fall asleep quicker.
I am also wondering if Ativan could be responsible for dizziness and shakiness I have been having over the past few months.
