Granted the only time I was given Ativan was in detox in the ward. I was feeling ill so I don't know if it just made me ok or what. In 2010 I was put on klonopin. In 2017 I was yanked off 3 mg a day for seven yrs. Yeah it was rough. I'm thinking about Ativan since I've been on almost every mainstream benzo from Valium to Xanax. Ativan is the only one I haven't been given. Does it have that relaxant like Valium. I no it has a lower half life. I take 2 mg klonopin a day but really only half a one.
