I took the ativan to help get with the withdrawal off antidepressant. one addiction to the next. I have only ever had moderate OCD and want to handle it with therapy.

Tuesday I tried going off it totally( I didn't realize 3.5 weeks was enough for dependence) horrible withdrawal, pacing-panic attacks- brain felt weird- terrible depression-felt like i was going crazy. I must say I am very med sensitive. Not until last night did I realize I will just have to go to my 1mg 2X a day again. I am seeing a specialist Tuesday to help.
I guess I am just very disheartened that to get off one drug i am on a new one that seems even harder to get off. Reading that slooow titration method is even more depressing as you said because at a relatively low dose for less than a month going that slow will take forever and the WHOLE IDEA WAS TO GET OFF MEDS!!!
